Ho Chi Minh Nightlife A to Z

What to Do at Night in Ho Chi Minh

Nightlife in Ho Chi Minh City is one of Vietnam’s liveliest, from rooftop bars and swanky nightclubs in District 1 to cheap eats, boisterous street bars and pubs set within Districts 3 and 5. Attracts mostly affluent travellers and locals, District 1’s nightlife hotspots boast excellent service, dance tunes, stylish ambience, well-dressed crowds, and panoramic views of the vibrant city and beyond.

While nightlife venues that play live music close soon after midnight due to Vietnam’s rather strict laws, but there are plenty that stay open (and busy) until 03:00 especially in backpacker-friendly Pham Ngu Lao. If you’re looking to party in style during your holiday, we’ve provided a full compilation of what to do at night in Ho Chi Minh City.
