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. fb.com/bannbarsaigon; drinks from VND180,000.
