We went into a bar called 'Lost in Saigon' by accident on our first night in Saigon on a really special Mid Autumn festival. They celebrate the festival by providing everyone with a Moon Cake and stewed beef with bread and some wine. The staff are friendly and a bit crazy. I went back there on the same night after my dinner and they didn't allow me in because I was wearing shorts. What a shock! This is a back packers area and cheap, and because of this, I didn't go back there again.
We had a few beers and cocktails there, which were VERY cold and well-priced. Snooker's on the second floor. We went to Allez Vous bar for dinner, a nice bar with crap, expensive food. The beers and cocktails are good but the staff aren't good at communicating, which surprised me!
After our meal, we went to Saigon Bar for a couple of drinks. This seemed a good bar and they make good Vietnamese coffee and it wasn't as crowded as other bars in Ho Chi Minh City.
