Nightclubs in Ho Chi Minh city

Most of the following dance dubs don't get started until midnight; ask around Pham Ngu Lao bars about the newest hot spots.

Apocalypse Now
Add: 20D Thi Sach
Tel: 824 1463
Dance clubs in Vietnam have a tendency to change with the wind, but 'Apo' is one exception to the rule. It's been around forever and gives a good eyeful of the seamier side of international relations. The music is loud, the patrons are from all walks of life and it's apocalyptically rowdy.

Tropical Rainforest Disco
Add: 5-15D Ho Huan Nghiep
Tel: 825 7783
One of the hottest dance spots in the city centre for the younger crowd. The cover charge entitles you to one free drink.

Add: 69D Dong Khoi
Tel: 829 9079
Opened from 10pm to midnight.
Underground is located in the basement of the Lucky Plaza building and is a popular gathering spot for expats and travellers alike. This spacious London tube-theme bar has a good happy hour and great pizza.
