6 hidden bars to "hide" from the hustle and bustle at the end of the day

Translated by Bing
Tuck into a corner of a bar, sip a tail, relax with music, and you're ready to immerse yourself in the life of the locals in the late afternoon in Saigon.

ATM Card  "Hide and seek" in a unique cover

Hidden bars (or speakeasy bars) are likened to a "little secret", because bars according to this model often hide in locations that are not easy to detect. However, there are locations so unique that it is impossible to imagine that it is the door to a bar!

This is also the story of ATM Card's  "1-0-2" shell – a bar that looks like an old ATM that has stopped operating. Not stopping there, customers have to go through about 3 or 4 doors and 1 small street filled with darkness before actually setting foot in the interior space.

And then, ATM Card appears as a gift at the end of the road, because you will be amazed by the luxurious, brilliant architecture and always the aroma of wines. In such a cozy space, it will be very suitable to invite loved ones or friends to dinner and sip some cocktails, because ATM Card serves a variety of dishes from Europe to Asia.

Address: 27/10 Nguyen Binh Khiem, Da Kao Ward, District 1.

Zodiac Bar  Garden of Eden of 12 zodiac signs

A talented cat outside the door invites to Zodiac Bar – a bar that "hides" behind a Korean-style wooden door on Luong Huu Khanh Street. Just push the door in, and you will be greeted by a magical light garden and completely separated from the rhythm of life out there.

The spacious space of Zodiac Bar is dominated by glossy black tones; The highlight is the rainbow LED light "creeping" into every corner and greenery hanging from the ceiling. In addition, the restaurant has quite a few impressive photo angles, one of which is the view of the moon glowing against the surrounding dark background.

The most interesting part is the signature 12-course cocktail menu representing the 12 zodiac signs of Korea – which is also the origin of the name "Zodiac Bar" of the restaurant.

Original Bar  A place to "hide" the whole world

Coffee in the alley is no longer strange to young people in Saigon, so have you ever heard of a bar hidden in the alley? Original Bar is such a bar when it is "nestled" in a small alley on Nguyen Trai Street.

The Original Bar is divided into 2 spaces: the lower floor is a bar for up to 20 guests, the upper floor is reserved for those who prefer a private space or organize a party for a group of up to 30 people. What both areas have in common is the coziness and elegance under the yellow lights and melodious music.

In terms of drinks, the cocktails here do not seem to follow a certain standard but can be adjusted at will to bring a complete experience to customers.

777  Minimalist Alley Bar

777 continues to be an impressive name in the list of bars hidden in alleys for young people to "hide" the world. Despite the name of the bar, this place is idyllic like a small stop to stop by to relax.

The small and cozy space of the restaurant is a "plus" for those who want to enjoy true peace. The interior is relatively simple but delicately arranged to highlight its own style. In particular, the shop uses lights and projectors throughout, making the whole room always flooded with magical light. This makes every guest who arrives at 777 immediately immerse themselves in a brilliant world.

The Brick  "2-in-1" Bar

Located on a small street in Binh Thanh district, The Brick offers a unique, quiet and warm space. This place is actually a "2-in-1" business model when it is both a bar and a coffee shop. The interior space is comfortable and private enough, but it does not create a boring feeling, but on the contrary, it is more playful with the presence of special firefly lights.

In addition to the quality of cocktails and coffee, The Brick also focuses on service when it is very delicate, only playing soft music genres for people to chat comfortably. This place is also the meeting point for many other interesting events such as tarot reading, gentleman's nights, etc. to diversify the customer experience.

Address: 187 D5 Street, Ward 25, Binh Thanh District.
