The View Rooftop Bar on Bui Vien Street(on the 9th floor of the Duc Vuong Hotel) may offer the best view for the cheapest drink prices you’ll find in Saigon (and definitely the best view while peeing in a men’s restroom!). Though prices seem to have increased over the past year or two with beer around 80,000VND and cocktails 160,000 VND.
It’s located in the backpacker area so the clientele is a bit different from the other flashy rooftop bars, but it’s also a lot more down-to-earth and chill. The colorful lanterns and greenery also give it a more fun atmosphere. Being on the ninth floor it’s not as high as other rooftops, and this area doesn’t have the high skyscrapers nearby, so the view is mainly of lower residential buildings and the farther off District 1 buildings.
The food is mainly Vietnamese and pretty good fare. While The View doesn’t particularly excel in any specific area it also doesn’t disappoint – the staff are friendly, the drinks pretty affordable, the view is good, and the cocktails are pretty strong.
So if you’re tired of the noisy, crazy vibe and pushy vendors on Bui Vien below, this offers a nice respite for a sunset chill-out or a late-night escape.
