Great atmosphere and interior

This is a really cool place to discover when you haven't heard of it before. Just walking through the door is an experience in itself. The decoration is reminiscent of the American 20s. The furniture is partly vintage. The staff is very friendly. A cool place to hangout with friends, or better, surprise a date by bringing taking them here!

Great atmosphere and cocktails
Oct 2019 • Business
We had a great experience at Snuffbox, had a meeting with some international partners and apart from business we had the opportunity to try some amazing negronis and old fashioned. The jazzy swing music was at a perfect volume so we could have a great time speaking together comfortably as well as enjoying the bar setting 😁

Thank you snuffbox

Amazing cocktails
Aug 2019 • Couples
Visited with my fiancée at ~8:00 PM on a Wednesday. Place was pretty dead until about 9:30 PM and then business started picking up rapidly. By then we had had 3 cocktails apiece and took our leave.

The cocktails here were amazing. We had mostly signature cocktails, and also tried their negroni with chocolate-infused amaro. Everything they served was of the highest quality— we have been to cocktail bars the world over, and the drinks here stand up to anywhere else in the world. Excellent service from the bartenders. It was a bit dark and the music was a bit loud, but those are nitpicks. A must-try in HCMC.

Amazing vibe and drinks
Aug 2019 • Couples
The speakeasy has this ‘Gatsby’ vibe to it. Dark corners with flannel couches, romantic I would say. The drinks are around 200.000d and good. The building it is in...it a bit sketchy...but it wouldnt be a speakeasy if you could find it easily. I would really recommend this place above any skybar.

rude incompetent service, complained our table was too noisy
Aug 2019
This bar has the most rude and pretentious service I've experienced in Saigon.
They seem to have misunderstood the concept of a Speakeasy, quiet outside, lively and relaxed inside. Instead the waitress told our table to keep the noise down for laughing too loudly, as the DJ setting up with excellent comic timing blasted ear splitting static through the sound-system, then we could barely hear each other speak let alone laugh.

Don't come here if you want to have a laugh with friends.

To make matters worse the staff were clueless about their menu, they didn't honour promos advertised on their website, and gave us incorrect info, finally on leaving they were confused when I explained 2-4-1 and buy 1 get 1 mean the same thing.

Truly bizarre and awful experience, which is a real shame as the location and building is cool, but if you go there pick one of the other more relaxed bars.

Cool Speakeasy Bar

Had my best last night in Saigon with this bar. I came here alone and the hospitality really great. Bartender and staff so attentive and knowledgeable. Great ambiance along with music from Dj. Would come back again!

Honestly, I can’t rate this place highly enough. The drinks are amazing. The experience is wonderful. And the bartenders are true professionals who are as friendly as your longest friend. If you go to one bar in Saigon, make it this one!

Dark and loud but excellent cocktails
May 2019 • Solo
Pretty hard place to find in a dingy building up the stairs. I really enjoyed the prohibition era theme and the design of the bar. However, the music is way too loud and it is way too dark. I had to use my phone flashlight to view the menu and I doubt I’m the only one who has had to.

The drink I ordered was excellent though. Staff is respectful and polite.

Nice bar, awkward staff

Bar has a good vibe, but the music is kind of weird. If you don't like being watched by the staff every time you blink your eyes, don't go here.
