About
*Note* Name has been changed to Om Lounge (Not Temple Lounge) - This is due to confusion with another local business. Same bar. Same Management. Same Experience! Om Lounge is a small bar/live music venue/cafe tucked away in the heart of HCMC. As you enter the Om Loungee you will realise why it is one of the best kept secrets of this city. Decorated with art work and homemade crafts it really has a cosy, warm and homely feel still keeping its 'temple' theme. It is the perfect place for a group of friends to spend the evening in a relaxing and comfortable environment. With live music 3 nights a week(Fri/Sat/Sunday) the Lounge hosts international and local acts weekly. The menu offers specially selected wines and many other drink options. *Want to have a function? Birthday, farewell, art exhibition etc....Om Lounge is the perfect place for groups of 30-40 people to have a small party.

Eating in a temple
Mar 2016
This restaurant is set upstairs in an old Chinese Temple. The large brick space is divided up by screens that make it feel more intimate. The food is very good here.

Nice place to get laid indeed.

Been here for a few times and jamming, singing with my friends and the guys there. I love the atmosphere! You can sit down and have a drink and talking and relaxing while giving a listen to live music, mostly piano solos or from a band. I have a band called The Yummy Rockers, then Mikey and Friends (now The Grey Jackals) and we've been here for a few times, playing and chilling with the audiences!

Not for us
Aug 2015
- says its fine dining but the food was nothing special and the service was a bit too much attention Rather over priced compared to other places Does have air conditioning and the building and interior is very interesting but we had better food in less pretentious places a lot cheaper

Hello, Thank you for coming in to The Temple Lounge(Om Lounge). We really appreciate your feedback and we apologies for your confusion - regarding us being a 'Fine Dining' lounge. **Please let us know where you read this and what made you think we are a fine dining restaurant - We will fix this.** We are actually predominately a wine/cocktail bar/lounge - our focus is on drinks & music - not food. When we have special events(private functions) we offer a wide selection of food options catered to the guests requests :) In regards to pricing, we are a small bar, provide high quality service and we offer free live music 3 nights a week. It is also very difficult for us to get customers because of our location. I hope this all makes sense to you and once again thank you again for your feedback and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Vietnam! Warm Regards, TL Management

Special club in HCMC
Aug 2015 • Friends
I went here with some friends to celebrate my birthday. Everything was special, the atmosphere, the music, the people of the staff. It'only few minutes far from the traffic of the District1 and it seems to be in a no-time place! Loved it!

Interesting

Went here by the recommendations on TA, found it eventually. Was made very welcome by the owner, and sat a table and offered a drink straight away.
The music supplied by a local guy, playing for the first time to an audience, on guitar - hmm interesting!
Followed by a pianist who played a lot of guns and roses music.
An enjoyable evening, relaxing place to unwind in the busy city.

What a gem of a place to find! Nestled away out of sight, this is a wonderful place to relax and unwind with a drink or two. The owner is wonderful and very welcoming. Highly recommend!

The most honest place in HCMC. "Unplug" in the city.

Tucked away in a very quiet corner of District 1 you find a casual, comfortable and pleasant little place to chill. Yes you can chill as it's so serene that you forget your troubles.
The amateur musicians here look like they are positively having fun belting out classics and crowd favourites.
It's my last night in HCMC and it was the perfect place to unwind and relax.
Will come again when I'm back!

A fantastic bar in HCMC
Jul 2015 • Friends
I visited this bar last week with a friend. What a beautiful atmosphere. Run by two friendly guys, we felt at home as soon as we walked through the doors. We spent the night enjoying some incredible wine and listening to some nice live music. Definitely a nice night away from Bui Vien. District 1's best bar in my opinion.
