Most Expensive Beer in Vietnam
Oct 2020
I am very surprised to have read all the reviews and nobody has mentioned that the cheapest beer is over 200K vnd. Which makes it the single most expensive beer that I have had anywhere in the world. Sure, the music is good, but it's not that good. Also, there is no "bar" or designated dancing area. There are only tables and an empty area about as wide as a hallway between the tables and the stage. I was by myself, and the general layout of the place makes it difficult, if not impossible, to meet anyone. The music was good, but not worth the outrageous price for beer.

The best
Sep 2019
We went here as part of a Vespa tour, no idea what to expect. We passed through a hobbit door (if you have been, you understand) and emerged into what seemed a different dimension. There were 3 singers performing and I was utterly blown away by the first singer... trouble was it only got better, there was a lady whom they referred to as Ms Victoria from Cuba, I could have listened to her perform all night, she was just that good. If you have a chance, go you will not regret it.

We had a wonderful time at Carmen bar. The music was amazing. They had 3 different singers performing with the house band the night we went. All were very very good. Lots of good energy here. Drinks were really good also. I highly recommend this bar!!

Latinos styled bar
Mar 2019 • Solo
It's really amazing night to spend, they start the I've music shows at 9 and for few hours, they have very good band and auditions I liked it very much, there's no food to serve just few dry snakes so if you're up to dinner then have prior to drop by, the only concern is that this bar is really over priced. I loved it :-)

Fantastic Music Definitely Worth a Visit
Aug 2018 • Friends
We returned to Vietnam and this was top of our list to visit and we went there the first day we arrived. All the same musicians were there from last time. The music was absolutely fantastic. The management remembered us from our last visit 3 years ago and set up a lovely food platter.
The quality of the musicians was phenomenal and we had the most amazing evening. The musicians do 3 – 5 numbers then another musician or group come on for a similar time slot. Drinks are not expensive considering that there is no admission charge. Music varies from Latino style to conventional popular, to French to classical.
Definitely worth a visit if you are in HCM.

Very rude!!
Sep 2018 • Couples
We go to Carmen Bar around once per month on average but are always given a table tucked away in the corner to the right of the stage. We always have one or two bottles of wine. This Saturday we got there early and there were lots of seat available. We wanted a seat at the back wall in the centre of the stage. The staff were very rude and said that was reserved. We couple only sit at a table again to the right of the stage in the corner. Not only do I not believe the table and others were all reserved, it was also the attitude of the staff that really annoyed me. We walked out and will not return or recommend it to anyone again. Further, after writing a message to their Facebook, I received the following reply. That sums up my experience.

Great Fun
Sep 2018 • Friends
Most of the performers were from Manila. Good variety, loud but not overly so. Service was good and not overbearing. Great little 'cantina' feel to the place. Loved the music and had a great time.
