Description: The View Rooftop Bar is located on the rooftop of Duc Vuong Hotel. There is no better way to experience Ho Chi Minh City than from a lofty rooftop with buildings and streaming cars spread out far beneath you. But some bars in Vietnam’s biggest city are now charging sky high prices to go with the sky high view. That’s why The View rooftop bar at Duc Vuong Hotel is such a great place for a drink: prices for a beer start from just 20,000 VND ($1 US), and the panorama from the ninth floor takes in the full cityscape of Ho Chi Minh for some great photographs. Located on the backpacker street of Bui Vien, The View rooftop bar is easy to find; it is housed atop one of the tallest buildings on the street.The bar is spread out across the entirety of the roof and split into two main sections providing plenty of seating. In addition, there is a sort of tree house structure made out of wood and an indoor ‘party room’ with disco lights (although this is almost always empty). The most pleasant part of the bar is the area stretching off to the right as from here there is the clearest view of Bitexco Tower and the neighbouring skyscrapers of Ho Chi Minh City’s financial centre. Wherever you look in The View rooftop bar you will see colourful strips of neon lights and plenty of trees, shrubs and flowers; like its Christmastime in a garden centre! It’s a charming and easygoing interior which matches the vibe of Bui Vien Street perfectly.Beers for $1 and cocktails for $3 is unheard of at any other rooftop bar in Ho Chi Minh City so if you want to capture a breathtaking background but don’t want to break the bank The View Rooftop Bar at the Duc Vuong Hotel should be your first choice. It must be said that service at The View is excellent and the English speaking staff are happy to chat and offer advice about where to go in Ho Chi Minh. They also serve a reasonable menu of western and Vietnamese standards but ultimately it’s the cheap cocktails that keep people coming back for more.

Excellent views of Saigon and a great way to spend the evening out of the busy streets below. Food was very good and the prices were very reasonable considering the great views.

This rooftop bar has an awesome view over the city and the bar itself looks great.
Regarding the drinks, don’t expect too much.. the cocktails are very “soft” and the bill will come with some extra charges that you will not be expecting.
Worth a visit anyway.

I've been here a few times because of friends visiting HCMC and each time been very disappointed. I tell my friends that it isn't recommended but they want to go. The view and decor is excellant but that's were it ends. The food is very poor. I went on a Saturday night and when I received my meal was cold. I could have understood if they were busy but it was only 7-30 and the place wasn't even half full. They say they have a happy hour but even so they have a 10% charge for tax and a 5% service charge and the latter one is a joke. I'd rather get some street food where you get served immediately and it is HOT and tasty. By all means go for the view but just get 1 drink and leave

Me and my boyfriend spend a nice evening in this bar with a perfect view on Saigon. We had beer and couple of cocktail (lychee martini is really good) with snacks. Atmosphere is very cozy and lanterns make it more romantic. Especially we want to say thank you to our waitress Jenny, she was very friendly and helpful in recommendations. For price and quality I think this is the best rooftop bar in Saigon.
