  • Apocalypse Now

    Ho Chi Minh City Nightlife

    first of all, they don't allow pictures inside, I managed to get 2 stolen shots inside before being reminded not to shoot pictures again by the burly security guards. This is the number one bar cum lounge for foreigners and locals and you would know since there will be a long taxi line in the street going to the Apocalypse Now. They only have a...

    Hanoi Nightlife

    While it may seem a tourist thing, water puppet theater plays are a traditional Vietnamese art. During the rainy seasons, when the rice paddies were flooded and every afternoon brought a tropical rain shower, people created this kind of theater which is actually played in the water. The puppets are moved with long wooden sticks and show typical...

    Hanoi Nightlife

    Apocalypse Now is a large, smoky bar full of American men and Vietnamese women. When we got there, my friend Vince went straight to the pool table, while I wandered to the bar to grab a few beers. While in line, I started talking to a nice young Vietnamese girl; things were going smoothly until she revealed that she was a hooker. Needless to say, I...

    My friends and I used to come at Q bar and found the place pretty comfortable but till last week, we were very disappointed on how the asst. manager (chubby, bald vietnamese) behaved towards their customers, when it comes dealing with complains. We asked them if they can fix or change our drinks but instead the asst. manager was behaving badly. he...

  • Bia Hoi

    Hanoi Nightlife

    It is only 3000 dong per glass of diluted beer. Don't bother converting to any currency now. I have never found anything cheaper than this. Trust me... Found in a few places in the Old Quarters but there is a concentration of them between intersection of Ta Hien St. and Luong Ngoc Quyen St.

    Ho Chi Minh City Nightlife

    We were taken here by a local woman who said it was great place. Unfortunately it was a week day and we were tired. However, it was a really amazing place that had multiple bars in one place and multiple themes. Hmmmmmm I think anything really - well not beach wear at least, it is a local place.

    Ho Chi Minh City Nightlife

    This place was fantastic! You enter through an odd stone staircase and find yourself in a crowded, cramped bar with rough rock walls and decorated with fairy lights and malibu bottles! It's a Latin music bar and on the night we were there a cover band was playing. They play every week and are really enjoyable to watch, as well as friendly and...

    Classic music or jazz events sponsored by embassies and companies are great at Hanoi. Almost all foreigners living in Hanoi will join these events, because they are rare (at least compared to big cities where you have more Nightlife). Sometimes oyu will get the chance to listen to famous musicians for around 10 USD in a very private armosphere.....

    Vietnamese people are not much the kind of people who enjoy nightlife, especially in smaller towns: they go to bed early and rise early, often before dawn. In the eveningI found that the most pleasurable activity was to simply walk around, especially wherever I could find some street vendors and local families.Nightlife does exist, though... the...
