Banana Mama is perfect for afternoon drinks, after work drinks or pre-dinner drinks – any drinks actually! With it’s laid-back, chill vibe and irresistible cocktails, it’s easy to lounge the night away here. Happy hour starts at 5 pm, and in case you’ll get hungry, growling stomachs can be tamed with sliders from Marcel’s burger – who we of course know from Cafe Marcel.

Great to start your night of partying here or to make a pre-drink stop before dinner!

76-78 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai, D3

A flat out favorite. Located on the topfloor of the gorgeous Hotel des Arts, this rooftop bar offers amazing cocktails with a view that dreams are made of. The lighted infinity pool, the perfect mix of locals and foreigners and the ‘ahh yes, finally some good’ music, make this place a must visit. Whether it’s with friends or on date night, this rooftop bar always delivers! Oh, and don’t forget to order a Moscow Mule.

President Place, 93 Nguyen Du, D1

Overlooking one of the iconic Palaces, and right in the heart of Saigon, this popular rooftop bar has a lot to offer. Fancy drinks, trendy design, a solid DJ and people ready to party, what’s not to like? The glowing round bar in the middle also creates a mighty fine atmosphere. To give your evening a little extra swoosh, order a shisha (waterpipe). Entertainment and grins garantueed!

41 Nguyen Hue, D1

Is it a bar or is it a rooftop? Lucky you, it’s both. At Broma you get a killer rooftop view with the coziness of a bar. Settle in and watch the young people stride up and down the boulevard of Nguyen Hue while enjoying a beer or cocktail with friends. People stream in from 8 pm onwards so we recommend an early dinner and then walk straight up those (many!) stairs at Broma.

Floor 6, 104 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia, D1

The lighthouse is a quirky place… and we mean this in a positive way. This is one of those ‘only in Saigon’ very cool bar experiences. When coming up to level 6, don’t stop at the indoor bar but go up the stairs. There you’ll find a great terrace and ditto view. Go up one more level and you’ll find yourself overlooking the city  while balancing on the roof construction. As we mentioned… only in Saigon! A great place to have drinks, not so much to be drunk.
