I went club hopping with my hubby and his insomniac French and American colleagues one night. Decided on this place as Lonely Planet ( the English and French version), the bible for all clueless travellers, said it was the hottest spot in town.
We hit it all right, drank our magaritas there and danced silly on the techno-lighted dance floor. We were sane enought though, to leave the pool table and cafe alone.
So was the Lonely Planet accurate? Ok, it was a hot spot but all the fun was somewhat watered down by the presence of 2 vigilant policemen in the club. What the hell were they were doing there anyway? They stood there all night, ram-rod straight with a funny expression. Well, perhaps, they were just tormented by all the hot music and unable to dance in those stiff green uniforms.

Dress Code: Strictly club apparel.
Apocalypse Now is one of the most famous bars and nightclubs in HCMC. It's rather cheesy decor is fashioned after the movie of the same name. Quiet the night we arrived, it is supposed to be one of the busiest night spots in town.
The music is pretty good with a mix of new and old stuff. There is an area with tables where you can sit down and there is also a dance area where you can bop until it closes at 1am. Watch out for the friendly girls.
Dress Code: Casual to stylish
I couldn't believe it when I went there, but that is actually the name of a bar in Saigon. It felt a little strange, but after a few ice cold '333's, the strangeness will pass and you can just enjoy yourself. T-shirts from this bar make for an interesting souvenir.
Dress Code: Anything. Just try not to sweat as much as the guy in the tank top, below.
