A Strong Drink And Another One: The Saigon Speakeasy Tour | Ho Chi Minh City | SE Asia #011

If you’re looking for a fun night out in Saigon away from the noise and debauchery of Bui Vien, this is for you!

Our trip to Hong Kong unleashed a new niche interest for us: speakeasy hopping. Some research on the internet taught us that Ho Chi Minh has quite the hidden bar scene, so we’ve ranked our favourites based on atmosphere, location/entrance experience, and of course, the cocktails. So if you’re looking for a fun night out in Saigon away from the noise and debauchery of Bui Vien, this is for you!

The Speakeasy in a Speakeasy: Our Hong Kong Highlight

There are at least a dozen of these ‘hidden’ bars in the city that aren’t exactly ‘secret’, but do require a little bit of reconnaissance to find and enter.

One of our favourite ways to get to know a city is doing the things the locals do. So when planning our Hong Kong trip, we did more than a little digging into the less touristy things to do in this amazing city. We soon discovered that HK is a cocktail lover’s dream! We are big fans of funky drinks and aesthetic bar designs, so when we found out about Hong Kong’s speakeasy scene, we were thrilled.
