On the top floor of one of the chicest buildings in Saigon—Hotel des Arts, MGallery Collection—you’ll find the ultra-chill Social Club Rooftop Bar. With a fully stocked cocktail bar that serves a number of its own ingeniously-crafted signature cocktails, a lounge area, and a swimming pool for guests that includes a poolside bar and DJ booth, the Hôtel des Arts Saigon Social Club Rooftop Bar is one of the best places to view dazzling sunsets over the majestic city of Saigon.
For those seeking that perfect social media photo-op in Vietnam, the rooftop pool is the highest infinity pool in the entire city, however it is only open to hotel guests (or customers buying an afternoon package), so it might be worth checking in to the hotel to satisfy the Instagram girl/guy in you.
The DJs keep the vibe afloat with beats that are soothing and mercifully unobtrusive, so that you can actually hold a conversation, especially if you’re there before things start to turn up at around 10 pm. The general atmosphere of Social Club Rooftop Bar hits that sweet spot between lively and tranquil, all depending on the energy you bring!
Conveniently located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1 near the Saigon Central Post Office and Notre Dame Cathedral, Social Club is also the perfect place for an afterwork drink. The rooftop bar has a daily happy hour from 17:00 pm to 20:00 pm and the menu includes eight enticing signature cocktails for those interested in the art of mixology.
The theme of the cocktail menu gets revamped yearly. This year the theme offers cocktails modeled after iconic, French perfumes. Fragrant drinks on the rooftop like the Mon Paris (a delicious mix of Absolut Raspberry, fresh lime, raspberries, and cinnamon syrup) and the invigorating Black Opium (Glenlivet 12 yr, Martell VSOP, Chambord, and cold brew coffee!) will ignite your senses and put a little swagger in your step.
The Social Club Rooftop Bar also throws monthly poolside parties, inviting world-renowned DJ’s (such as Leeroy Thornhill of the famed 90s group Prodigy) to spin while stylish patrons dance the night away. If you’re lucky enough to join its community, you can take part in some of Hôtel des Arts Saigon’s invite-only special events.
The Hôtel des Arts Saigon Social Club Rooftop Bar prides itself on providing an atmosphere that anyone can enjoy. There’s a come-as-you-are vibe where everyone feels welcome and equally attended to with top service from convivial staff. The resulting atmosphere is one of a light-hearted community of Saigon’s trend-setters, expats and world travellers, relaxing in style with spectacular views of glittering Saigon on display.
