The Observatory, Ho Chi Minh City

(4/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Dance the night away and enjoy a drink with friends at The Observatory. Located in the bustling part of town down by the harbour, it provides the perfect atmosphere with friends and sample their homemade rum. International DJ’s play on the weekends playing an eclectic mix of techno and electronic music playing until the early hours in the morning. The balcony provides a much needed break from the heavy music and notice the fluorescent lights of the streets. Add The Observatory and other attractions to your Ho Chi Minh City trip itinerary using our Ho Chi Minh City itinerary builder.

  • The place is located in District 4 which is very close to the center. Djs were really good. we had a very good time there enjoyed the music and their great cocktails 
  • I love this venue because they are serious and sincere for music. Strictly underground. Recommended for hipsters, artists and philosophers.

  • This is the best place to chill with your friends in a non-pretentious way. All other big, front club is reek with the showing-off vibe, but not this place. You get a clear wide view of the river and the Elisa floating restaurant. Entrant before 11pm is free, 100k after that.
  • Great underground music. Nice crowd. Friendly staff.
  • Was here Friday night. Good DJ from Berlin. Good people, mix of expats and locals.
  • Great place to get your dose for Berlin Techno
