Let me start with the 'cons' : This place is shady, there are waitresses bending over the bar to place an order, few others were dancing around a pole (much to the delight of the only other paying customer there that night)
There was a guy near the DJ clicking pictures of these girls attempting to pole dance...it was just terrible - the whole place gave me the creeps
We ordered a drink while we were entering the place, so by the time we noticed what was going on, the bill was handed to us - we transferred our drinks into plastic glasses and stormed out of the place.
The good part is that the drinks were good, the music (the 1.5 songs I heard) was good.
The smoke machine was probably the reason why it took me a while to figure out what was going on.
Avoidable I would say.

Our Pub crawl comes here at the end of each one, also my mates and I always end up coming here after the end of a long drinking session.
It's a good place to come if you're drunk and just want to dance, the staff are nice..
The place is what you would expect from a small "club" in vietnam.. The drinks are a bit over priced but they do make them pretty strong so it evens out.
It's not the best place but if your'e with a nice group you'll have fun.

We visited Ho chi minh and went to the mad dog bar. The music was good and the atmosphere is ok but when i ordered my third bottle of beer things changed. I only had a 500.000 VND bill on me and i gave it to the waitress. I asked her if she had the change because not everywhere in Vietnam they do. She said yes and when she came back she gave me 50.000 VND back. I told her she made a mistake and explained everything to her. 1 saigon beer only was like 35.000 VND. She was 100% sure she didn't make a mistake. I said the same story to the other people that were working there and even the manager. They were really agressive and after 30 minutes of discussion we left the place without our 350.000 VND. Not that big of a deal ofcourse but wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!

We came with Hideout Hostel bar crawl. We got 4 beers for about 160.000 VND and paid in full, only be told we didn't pay. After 5 minutes of aggression and hostility one member of staff punched my friend. He then smashed a bottle and tried to stab him while another member of staff picked up a knife behind the bar. I want to make it clear there was no hostility from our group only trying to explain we definitely paid. These other reviews confirm this. After reasoning and throwing extra money at them they let us leave immediately. Will never be back.

We went there on a pub crawl, hideout hostel pub crawl. They gave us water in a beer bottle and opened it in front of us expecting us not to taste the difference. Called them on it immediately, they just shrugged and gave another beer, we attempted to confront the manager who dodged us constantly and the other staff then pretended not to speak English. Avoid at all cost and also the pub crawl, what a joke!!

Only people there at 5.30pm. Toilets were disgusting. Two young guys serving tried to rip us off on the bill (we 'reminded' them it was happy hour and they needed to honour that). Like most bars in this area, it's just a gross rip off joint to fleece tourists - they don't care if you come back or not.

They staff is not nice, place is shady and they ripped me off 450k dong they said I didn't pay with 500k but I surely did. Don't understand why the pub crawl goes here but it is truly a scam!

Wandered into this cesspit for a couple of beers, bad mistake. Only had 2 but they tried to charge for 5, then threatened violence when I refused to pay. A phone call and quick chat with the brother in law and they started to see things my way. I know its only a few dollars, but I don't like people trying to rip me off. The stupidity is that they would have got that much or more as a tip.
