HO CHI MINH CITY | Saigon Outcast has developed a reputation as one of Ho Chi Minh City’s most exciting bars since opening in 2012. The large, mostly outdoor space is a creative outpost in District 2, and it’s where you’ll find great drinks being served out of converted shipping containers, street art walls, live DJs, and a skateboard ramp for boarding and BMX. It’s a whole lot of fun in what’s otherwise a conservative, expat heavy part of town, and very popular with artistic and creative types.
All of the above makes for a fun venue by itself, but thankfully the drinks menu is a cut above the rest too. Cocktails are tasty and affordable, and there are lots of craft beer options featuring a wide range of styles from local breweries. For more of a craft beer focus, check out sister venue Rogue Saigon in District 1.
The venue also hosts plenty of events throughout the week, like painting classes, open mic nights, film nights, and weekend flea and farmers markets – check the Facebook page for an up-to-date listing of upcoming events. If you’re visiting Ho Chi Minh City, Saigon Outcast is well worth the 20ish minute taxi ride from the centre of District 1.
