Like its namesake opera, this Ho Chi Minh City bar is a hit. Built on a flamboyant foundation of Flamenco music, it stands out from the crowd not only for its enchanting Latin sounds, but also for its moody and dim interior replete with candle-lit beer keg tables. Whether you come to Carmen to drink or dance, your night out in Saigon just got a lot more interesting.
Flamenco music in HCMC? Yes! Carmen delivers Flamenco music played by a (mostly) Vietnamese band. The venue features a lovely intimate interior that somewhat resembles a wine cellar. The exterior stone wall gives the joint a faint European feel. Carmen is the perfect quiet bar for travellers looking to unwind after a busy day spent dealing with all the sights and sounds of Saigon.
