Carmen Bar, Ho Chi Minh City

Carmen Bar is one of the more unique night spots in Saigon. For starters, it looks a bit like a log cabin both inside and out. You enter through a small doorway that makes you feel a little like a hobbit. Once your inside, it opens up to candle-lit tables and a coverband strumming popular western tunes. The music is mostly easy listening, so look elsewhere if you're looking for a loud and raucous evening.

Dress Code: Carmen Bar is popular with a lot of Saigon's well-to-do Vietnamese. Generally, locals wear dress pants and a button up shirt even in the most seemingly casual situations. So, it's probably a good idea to wear something nice-casual to Carmen Bar. Don't go in backpacker attire unless you want to stick out like a sore thumb.
