This iconic bar is a great place to watch the sun go down over the lights of the city and relax with friends. The panoramic views of the city are spectacular, particularly in the evenings when Saigon Saigon becomes the place to meet. Live entertainment nightly.

Went here on a recommendation from a friend. Ended up going twice as the bar was under renovations the first time and we couldn't order cocktails so we just had lunch. Burger was pretty good.

Originally a hangout for foreign journalists during the Vietnam war, the rooftop of the old Caravelle Hotel is now overshadowed by a high-rise extension alongside - but still has fine views of the city with its illuminated skyscrapers. Cocktails excellent and appetisers so good they spoil you for eating elsewhere. Staff helpful and friendly.

Lovely hotel and excellent views over city. Cocktails nice but bit pricey! ("Happy hour" is half price!). Good selection of drinks. Comfortable surroundings and can sip cocktails watching world go by below! Historical hotel used by war correspondents in Vietnam war, so interesting to visit.

Heard a lot about this roof bar prior to my recent visit. I must say after finally going, its not that great. Service is below the standard but drinks are cheaper than many other roof top bars. There are many better places to enjoy a night out.

We had tickets to go to the AO Show at the Opera House and were in the mood for some cocktails before the show.

On the roof of the five star Caravelle Hotel the Saigon Saigon bar is a great place for an early evening cocktail, albeit an expensive cocktail starting at 220,000 Dong (roughly £10). The hotel was famous during the Vietnam War for housing western journalists and American TV companies. Appetisers are available (including veggie alternatives). There is a smallish outside area...

Definitely a beautiful place to have a drink and look at the sights. I am nor sure how easy it is to get upstairs if you are not a guest at the hotel. But a good place to see the sights and enjoy a beer or cocktail for about $6-10 usd.

The history of this rooftop bar alone requires a visit - from the pictures of American reporters (peter Jennings, et. al) imbibing during the war years to the amazing vistas of the area...to the cheesy american pop bands performing. Its classic, nostalgic, fun and reminds me of the saying about riding a moped. Its all fun, until your friends seeing... More

My friend and I visited this bar during happy hour time and enjoyed various drinks. Staffs are very friendly and able to recommend drinks to guest's question. You can enjoy nice overlooking view to opera house and notre dame church. Table at the balcony can be a bit crowded with litte space though.
