Location and contact

The View Rooftop Bar is located on the rooftop of Duc Vuong Hotel. There is no better way to experience Ho Chi Minh City than from a lofty rooftop with buildings and streaming cars spread out far beneath you. But some bars in Vietnam’s biggest city are now charging sky high prices to go with the sky high view. That’s why The View rooftop bar at Duc Vuong Hotel is such a great place for a drink: prices for a beer start from just 20,000 VND ($1 US), and the panorama from the ninth floor takes in the full cityscape of Ho Chi Minh for some great photographs. Located on the backpacker street of Bui Vien, The View rooftop bar is easy to find; it is housed atop one of the tallest buildings on the street.The

We enjoyed spring rolls and a great cocktail involving gin and Earl Grey tea. The best thing though was the fabulous view at sunset and after, watching the surrounding city lights come on. Nice to be above the hustle & bustle of Bui Vien St.

The bar itself is really cute and embedded with lots of Vietnamese style. The lanterns scattered throughout the bar really are the main attraction. The bar doesn’t have the same views as the giant towers but it also doesn’t have the price tag so it’s...More

We loved this rooftop bar because it was a quick escape from the busy streets below. The drinks and food weren't so bad either, and all at good price! Would definitely recommend

Other than the view you can get from the rooftop (9th floor) the hundreds of lamps used to decorate it, gives one the hoi an Riverside experience. Service is good. After visiting the Pasteur brewing company and being made a fan, I ordered the Pasteur...More
