Looking For A Cool New Bar in Saigon? Kohei's Hidden Cocktail Bar Won't Disappoint!

by - June 07, 2020

Tucked away in District 1, Kohei’s Bar can only be found down a dark alley and up a flight of stairs through an old Saigonese apartment building. But getting to this hidden cocktail bar in Saigon is only half the fun. If you like craft cocktails and bartending with a flair, Kohei’s Bar is your new one stop shop in Saigon’s District 1!

Kohei, the man who runs the show, originally from Tokyo, has made his way from Shanghai to Saigon with his passion for cocktail culture in tow. His bar is all about locally sourced ingredients, incredible flavor combinations and cocktails to tickle anyone’s fancy. So if you're looking for a dreamy escape within the hustle of Ho Chi Minh City, Kohei’s Bar is the perfect spot to grab a drink. 

Crafty Cocktails & Fiery Flavours

Aside from the fantastic cocktail menu which includes some of Kohei’s favourites, like the “I Am F%^&IN Hot!!!” lotus tea infused no-age rum and the “South East Asian Smash,” Kohei is keen to whip up some crafty concoctions based on your own flavour profile! A surprise you’re bound to like? Yup, count me in! We watched as our “Kohei original” drinks were mixed, shaken and stirred to perfection. Of course they were nothing short of incredible, surpassing a lifetime of previous drinks, Kohei’s Bar is definitely one of the coolest new cocktail bars in Ho Chi Minh City.

Although the cocktails are enough to draw anyone in, including me, the bar itself is a destination not to be missed. With an ever-growing bottle collection as the backdrop, a stocked cabinet full of fresh cigars, beautiful chocolate leather sofas and stunning handpicked photography, Kohei’s Bar is the urban-modern flow we all needed in a cocktail bar. It has 'date night' stamped all over it, with rustic decor, low-hanging lights, and sexy handcrafted drinks like the boozy and rich classic pre-prohibition, Old Fashioned. So, if you’re looking for a cool bar in Saigon be sure to add this one to your list.

A Passion for Cocktail Culture

Now we all know the bar’s bartender is one of the most powerful and influential components of any bar-machine out there and Kohei’s Bar is no different. He’s able to guide you in the direction of choosing something you’ll be sure to love and plays up the flavours you crave. Kohei himself is host to his own nightly party where everyone is welcome to join the fun and enjoy fantastic drinks. This new spot in the middle of Saigon is cool, calm and collected and is a great stop if you're bar hopping through the city!
