Whiskey and Craft beer upscale but relaxed and not pretentious bar. Great selection of whiskey and Saigon made craft beer at affordable prices as well as mixed drinks, and Vietnamese-inspired cocktails with locally sourced and homemade ingredients.

What a difference from other options ; great cocktails, strong pours and friendly people. Tamarind whiskey sour was a truly unique and special cocktail. Only have 4 days here and felt like home .

Great cocktails. The old fashioned...mmmmmmm. Friendly staff, patrons, and even a chilled out dog that hangs upstairs. I will be back!

The bar is cosy and the drink selection is good but the service doesn’t deliver. The prices are creeping up to Western levels, so I would expect exceptional service but it was below average. I paid around 300k for three drinks with limited table service....More
