Saigon Outcast, District 2

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.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
