6 Best Nightclubs in Ho Chi Minh City

Saigon’s Most Popular Nightclubs

The best nightclubs in Ho Chi Minh City are mostly found within close proximity to more renowned hotels and tourist attractions – great for first-time visitors looking to party the night away during their holiday here. No two nightclubs are the same, ranging from District 1’s swanky establishments frequented by the rich and famous to underground music clubs dedicated to Saigon’s alternative culture.

With an extensive drinks list, impressive DJ line-ups, and vibrant atmosphere, Saigon nightclubs are great alternatives to the city’s often overpriced rooftop bars as most do not require cover charges before 23:00. Best of all, some of these nightclubs often stay open until the sun rises in Ho Chi Minh City, offering a great night out for hard-core party lovers. Read on to discover our list of Saigon’s most popular nightclubs.
