There’s a secret inside the Grand Hotel. The hotel has been an iconic fixture on Dong Khoi street in Ho Chi Minh City since the 1930s. But what most people don’t know, is that within the building’s stately beauty you can find one of Saigon’s best casinos: the Grand Club.
Open since 2008, Grand Club has a loyal following of players attracted to the thrill of the casino games as well as the generous membership benefits. Pass through the lobby and up the curving staircase to the second floor and you’ll find the casino. From the moment that guests enter, the rhythmic sound of the dealers calling out wins and slots chiming create a soundtrack that pulls the guest out of the dignified calm of the hotel and instantly elevates the excitement. Despite the casino’s modern fixings, the classic luxury of the hotel is still present in the glamourous crystal chandelier on the ceiling and the buttery leather club chairs designed to keep guests in comfort and class as they play.

With 32 Roulette stations, 5 Blackjack stations, 10 Baccarat stations and 69 slot machines, there are 116 ways to win big. The casino takes pride in the fact that the game room can accommodate any type of player. According to the management, some people come in looking for the nostalgia of ‘old time’ slot machines, others are seeking fully-automated and state-of-the-art equipment. Regardless of your game of choice, all guests are greeted at the door with top service and smiles from Grand Club’s sexy waitstaff. Once you’re seated in one of the comfortable leather chairs you can relax and wait for the staff to bring you a complimentary cocktail and other drinks while you try your hand with Lady Luck.
