Bann Bar & Cuisine

Feb 25, 2019

DOWNTOWN’S ARTSIEST LITTLE cocktail bar is an eclectic affair. You might catch a stand-up comedy act, live band, or simply a DJ playing mellow electronica melodies on the higher, seventh floor—that’s also the ideal spot to enjoy sundowners with a cooling breeze coming off the Saigon river. Downstairs, things are simpler. Prop up the stylish bar, where the mixologists make a mean Blood and Sand. Or for a thirst quencher, try the Sacred Fire ale by Heart of Darkness, a local craft brewery.

The Myst Dong Khoi

With its whiter-than-white façade, hanging plants and asymmetrical windows, the Myst has been a breath of fresh air for Saigon’s ever-rising, but rather generic, skyline since opening in 2017.

Banh Da Cua Di Ly

The interior might be rather sleek and modern but you’re coming for the best of Haiphong’s street-food scene at this family-run restaurant up the stairs at 103 Dong Khoi.
