Ho Chi Minh City has style beyond words. From sophisticated jazz bars to rustic converted shophouses, there is something for everyone. Thing is, we love it all. Does that make us everyone?
Here are our 5 favorite hangout spots in the city. We hope you find a new regular.
Đông Dương Cafe
Explore a menu of fresh coffee and frothy beers with live music every night at this shophouse conversion. This is the place to hear new Saigon talent. Don’t miss out.
101 Bùi Viện Street, Ho Chi Minh City
We know, meeting new people can be a chore. Indika takes away those anxieties with a unique, rustic vibe and free flow alcohol every Friday. If you prefer to jam, make it there on Wednesdays for a free flow night of reggae, hip hop and soul instead.

Vừng ơi mở ra Cafe
Vintage, quirky, hidden. We like the style here. Old sofas, colorful wallpaper, wooden doors – inspirations of old. Expect mellow live music and cool, icy drinks.

Déjà vu Coffee
For something a little more hidden away, Deja Vu Coffee is full of nostalgia and charm. Sink into a chair and sip some coffee before the night begins. For a date, think live piano music over romantic sundowners…a night made to impress.

Saxnart Jazz Club
Owned by one of Vietnam’s most recognized saxophonists, Trần Mạnh Tuấn, we saved the best until last. Live jazz and amazing cocktails are in perfect harmony every night. Mesmerize yourself this weekend, you know you deserve it.
