6 Best Live Music Bars In Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

What are the best places for live music in Ho Chi Minh Vietnam?

Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon, is famous for its vibrant nightlife. In this never-sleeping city, there are so many places to enjoy a fun night out, from karaoke venues, night clubs, to live music spots.

In our Ho Chi Minh nightlife guide, you’ll find the best live music bars and cafes in town with diverse genes. 

 

1. Yoko Cafe

One of our favorite live music bars in Saigon is Yoko Cafe. The place was established in 2002 and named after Yoko Ono, a famous Japanese female artist.

Yoko offers a pleasant atmosphere with a good mix of locals and expats.

Live music usually starts at 9:30 pm, with a variety such as rock, pop, ballad, indie, and jazz. So no matter your music’s taste, Yoko has something to offer.

Good points:

  • Great vibe and atmosphere
  • Space is a bit dark but cozy and cool
  • Live music is pretty good, especially acoustic
  • Drinks and food are okay.

Minus points:

  • The price is a bit high
  • Smoking is allowed indoor
  • Strange set-up: Tall tables and chairs are in front of the stage while the lower ones are in the back

Address: 22 Nguyễn Thị Diệu, District 3

 

2. Acoustic Live Music & Bar

What we love about Acoustic Bar is its chic and chilled atmosphere.

The crowd includes a great variety of attendants, from locals, expats to tourists. So, if you are looking to meet new and interesting people, then this place is ideal.

However, the space of the Acoustic Bar is quite small. It is often crowded on weekends, so come early to take a nice spot for an exciting evening.

3. Rock Fan Club

If you want to enjoy the finest rock music, then Rock Fan Club (RFC) is the place to be.

Just a few blocks from Acoustic Bar, Rock Fan Club offers brilliant nights for Rock followers. Most popular rock bands gather here with schedules that vary by genre, from pop-rock, rock-ballads to punk, and heavy metal.

One thing to note is that at Rock Fan Club, people are free to smoke. So, if you can’t stand the smell of heavy smoke, you should reconsider it.

  • Address: 25C Tú Xương District 3
  • Music starts from 9 pm

 

4. Fang Pub

We were delighted to stumble across Fang Pub and had such a good time. They have live music bands starting at 9 pm and perform a mix of Vietnamese and popular English songs.

Drinks are slightly pricey but it covers the cost of awesome performances. This pub is quite small so you should reserve tables before coming. I would recommend calling before 6 pm.

Also, Fang Pub allows smoking inside, so you may feel uncomfortable smoky rooms.

Indika Saigon is a charming hidden gem to escape the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh city.

We love the decorations here! The courtyard offers a relaxing vibe, while the bar is cozy and warm. Services and drinks are also good.
