Great night out
Jan 2015 • Friends
I was here to see the great Mac Demarco.
My friend is a huge fan of this guy and he was playing in Cargo Bar.

We arrived an hour before the gig would start and had a look around.
Nice place, very basic interior, which gives it a very cool atmosphere.
It's not too warm, the huge fans and a/c provide the guests with a very nice temperature.

There are 2 bars, where they serve Budweiser (cans) or mixes (plastic cups).

The gig itself was great, not what I expected since I'm not a huge fan of the kind of music Demarco plays...
The lights and music system added great value to the performance.

Crowd was very western, almost no locals... So if you are looking for Western people, go here!

On little point of improvement; one of the (female) bartenders did not seem to speak English and was only able to serve Budweiser since she didn't know how to make a Gin Tonic or Bacardi Coke...

The Pizza they serve throughout the night is well worth its money!! Delicious

Great Space for Events
Aug 2014 • Friends
These guys bring in the best international acts into Saigon and are forefronting international music being brought into Saigon. Keep an eye on their site for upcoming events to your liking.
The space can be shuffled around on an event per event basis which keeps it interesting and means whatever the size Cargo can create the right space for the event.

Went there for the Bourbon Jazz festival and the Blue/Orange show. Place is big, the decoration and furniture (setting) can be changed and moved around : very practical for different events. Drinks are okay.

Gutted to miss Cargo Bar last night!
Dec 2013 • Solo
Cuban brothers band, and the crowd of old mates sounded awesome. Love this venue and the ambiance, despite the cover charge. if only i'd been less wobbly after Yung and Patrick's amazing wedding at Park Hyatt, or kicked off my stacks earlier. Can't wait to get back to another great night at the port. Must be one of the city's best playgrounds to play!

N.B. Check the time the bike park is locked up ...approx. 1 or 2am

An original place you must see
Oct 2013 • Friends
This place is original. Located perfectly in D4, right over the bridge from D1 in a warehouse, I think this place is amazing. Interesting concept using pallets as decoration and tables. I think they even had a stage in the back of the warehouse where I heard they do photo shoots or even do some filming. Prices were good considering how close you are to D1 and more importantly, it's safe. You'll see what I mean when you go visit. Definitely worth at least once visit to experience an amazing idea, but I'll be bringing my friends there for a chill night or to listen to some live music. They've always seem to got stuff going on there.

Great space for an up coming music scene in Ho Chi Minh city. A little hard to find from the street tho.
