Japanese Hostess Club
Jan 2016 • Solo
This is one of the many Japanese hostess bars on Ngo Van Nam Street. I went in there to take a look while I was checking out the street. The second time I tried to go in, they used high pressure sales tactics on me and said it was closed. "You don't choose girl." "You just look." Fine, I'll choose a hostess and try it out.

They charge $40 for unlimited drinks with a hostess until closing time. Closing time is at 1am. The hostess claimed she did not drink and tried to drink Coca-Cola. She only agreed to drink whiskey with me if I agreed to pay for her taxi home. At the end, she asked me for taxi money, I opted to call her an Uber instead. She declined. Looks like was looking to drive home drunk with her motorbike, and then keep the "taxi money" instead.

I guess this place is ok, if you are running solo and don't want to drink alone.
