2 Lam Son Bar at Park Hyatt Saigon (Saigon, Vietnam)

After having dinner with our friends we wanted to have drinks at the new bar of the Park Hyatt. We used to stay there and the bar was not open yet. The Hyatt group always has very creative ideas in terms of food & beverage. Their concepts always surprise & delight us, especially in Asia. So, we were sure that the new bar at the Park Hyatt was going to be incredible.

We were not disappointed. The Park Hyatt Saigon has a elegant & old world chic feel to it once you enter the lobby. Once you pass the lobby bar with a piano jazz singer, you open the sliding door to the Park Hyatt bar, you are suddenly amazed at the difference in terms of atmosphere.

You walk into modern chicness. You are not in Vietnam anymore but more of a trendy new world atmosphere where the decor & design is an infusion of global trends. The bar is not large but yet seemed comfortable. There was a good vibe & energy in the air; or could that have been coming from the DJ playing house music.

The wine & champagne list was extensive. To our disappointment, champagne Billecart-Salmon that we wanted was out of stock so we settled with champagne Nicolas Feuillate, another good champagne at a great value.

Another fantastic bar to visit in Saigon. As you can imagine, the crowd at 2 Lam Son bar (the bar's name comes from the address) are the rich & chic crowd of Saigon. However, I do have to mention that there was no attitude problem the crowd. Everyone was just having a great time in a great place.
