Hidden beyond dragons dancing from ornate pagodas into the night sky, down narrow streets where half-clothed children run wild, and around slithering bends in the canal, vibrant nightlife of all varieties can be found in District 3. This is an area just 2 kilometers north of the lunacy of Pham Ngu Lao that operates at a more relaxed pace.
If you arrive past 9, expect standing room only, as a trendy mix of youthful locals, tourists, and expats pack this dimly lit t 7 nights a week. The drinks are quite expensive by Saigon standards, yet the lack of cover charge, electric atmosphere, and diverse set of acts more than make up for it. Music generally gets going around This sprawling establishment with its DJ, strobe lights, and scantily clad dancers has more of a party vibe going for it than other bars around.
The beer list is extensive and prices are just a tad above average. A champagne garden, sky bar, dining area, and cigar room spread across three floors of the Centec Tower offer patrons an inventive new spin on the rooftop scene.
Dress to impress; this one is a pricey, intimate experience. BiaCraft may have more craft beer on tap than anywhere else in Vietnam. From their own home-brews to local favorites like Heart of Darkness and Fuzzy Logic, from crisp to fruity, this District 3 staple has something for everyone.
With a convenient location down a quiet side street, just off Cach Mang Thang Tam and an expansive shaded terrace, BiaCraft is a great place to slip away from the midday Saigon heat.
