Level 23: More Than Just a Rooftop Bar
Saigon’s District 1, a cacophony of noise and chaos, a symphony of car horns and construction noise. Wouldn't it be nice to watch this happen far below you, the city noise replaced by the lingering notes of soft, relaxing music, and the slowly setting sun completing a lovely ambience for a drink or two with a friend or date?
At Level 23 Nightspot and Wine Bar, perched on the rooftop of Sheraton Saigon right in the heart of the city centre, you’ll get to experience all these and much more. From a picturesque and unobstructed view of the city skyline that extends beyond district 1, right to the setting sun, to a bird’s eye view of the busy streets below.
Beyond the Aesthetics
This is an ideal place for a relaxing post-work drink, a gathering of friends or even a romantic date.
When you come to Level 23, you’re treated to more than just a majestic view: there’s the very friendly, responsive and knowledgeable staff always ready to assist you; the delightful variety of skillfully prepared signature cocktails, including themed promotions on offer every month (July is the month for mint-based cocktails, if you’re in the mood for a julep); a nice, spacious layout that ensures you don’t get distracted from your conversation and of course, delicious food and drinks at reasonable prices.
Looking to dance the night away? Hop next door to Level 23 Nightspot, where you have a spacious dance floor to groove the night away, surrounded by plush sofas with floor-to-ceiling windows facing the winding Saigon River.
Drinks on offer
At the bar you’ll find a collection of signature cocktails and mojitos in interesting flavours such as raspberry and mango, together with an extensive collection of whiskies, spirits and wines, and even an XXL option if you’re really thirsty or planning to share a drink with your friends.
And did we mention the monthly themed promotions with curated drinks on offer?
Get ahold of some of their best-selling signature cocktails such as the Zacapa Sensation: a beautiful combination of Zacapa 23, dry martini, apple juice, lime juice and syrup served in a martini glass; as well as the Aperol Spiritz, a simple but romantic-looking drink featuring a combination of Aperol aperitif and sparkling wine.
Mint Julep, one of the most refreshing cocktails to counter the Saigon heat is also available at Level 23 and it won’t disappoint, being both refreshing and able to hit the right spot at the same time.
Get Your Munch On
If you’re looking for a full-fledged dining experience, Level 23 Signature, located just next door, has an amazing array of dishes. But if you’re just looking for something to munch on while having a drink, it’s available at the wine bar, with recommendations on how to pair it with what you’re drinking.
For example, if you’re having port wine, then the Pan Fried Foie Gras will be a perfect accompaniment. But if you’re in a larger group, try the Cold Cut Platter or, in a clever re-interpretation of “east meets west”, the Asian Platter.
Featuring a collection of prawn toast, homemade spring rolls, freshly prepared spring rolls and chicken satay, this dish is dangerously addictive and it will be a challenge not to order another set right after you’re done.
Look Your Best (and Get a Free Lunch)
Level 23 boasts a very relaxing and chilled-out environment and with a stunning view on offer, there’s a chance to make the most out of it – and walk away with a free lunch for two.
All you need to do is take a picture of yourself with the view of the skyline from Level 23 as your background, upload it to your social media accounts using the hashtags #sheratonsaigon and #level23, set your privacy settings to ‘public’, ‘check-in’ at Sheraton Hotel & Towers and tag your friends. Do this and you stand a chance to win a complimentary lunch buffet voucher for two at Saigon Cafe, located on the first level of Sheraton Saigon!
