Disappointing Customer Service
sep 2020. • Prijatelji
I have lived in HCMC for over 2 years and my experience at the Observatory is usually great. However my friends and I are SO disappointed with our most recent visit. We loved the inclusivity of the Genderfunk event, and have always enjoyed this venue. However, on this night the bar staff accidentally misplaced my bank card during a busy period. Rather than look for it, they just shook their heads and ignored me. After 30mins of this, they eventually located my card and it was returned to me very dirty, wet and useless (as I had to block it) without any kind of explanation or apology. I did discuss the matter with the owner who seemed very stressed and overwhelmed, but was also sympathetic. I initially thought I was making some headway, but when discussing solutions, she only said "I have people downstairs to greet, what do you want me to do?!". She eventually agreed to serve me the two drinks I had already paid for, but I was made to feel like massive inconvenience for asking for this. I hate to say this but this was honestly the worst night out I've had during my time in Saigon 😟 I do understand these things happen but surely treating your customers with respect should be a priority? I didn't ask for a refund, nor did I attempt to vindicate any of the staff - I just asked for clarity and new drinks. So so disappointed.

NO WAY - Agressive behaviour from the owner
feb 2019. • Prijatelji
Yesterday night a friend of mine was shamefully humiliated by the club owner and his security staff for no reason. Unexplainable and unrealistic agressive behaviour. Don't support that guy by spending your nights there.

The view is nice indeed, people inside are nice indeed, but the staff is still living in the 70th with the french occupation, nothing happened to me personally but a guy was very violently by the staff without being able to explain anything, not the Saigon vibe at all, my girlfriend told me she would never go back to this place

Staff Steal Your Phone
jan 2019. • Prijatelji
Why is this bar still rated well? Maybe at some point the staff didn't steal your mobile phone. According to an ex-pat who lives in Ho Chi MInh, they have dropped off and customer base has fallen. Here's a possible reason why; A large group of us were there in early January 2019. Our friend, (who shouldnt have had his phone in his back pocket) 'lost' it'. Begged staff to help him find it. Offered to pay 1 million, 2 million if they could find it. Phone appears a short while later. We begin to leave. Manager at elevator asks us not to tell the police. Avoid!

Rooftop drinking with intense club room
nov 2018. • Prijatelji
A wide open rooftop bar with great view over D1, coupled with an intense club experience in the club room if you want. High quality local and international dj's playing a range of music through a proper soundsystem.

Way overrated

Totally not worth the entrance fee. We went here on a Saturday night and the crowd were boring. The view wasn’t that nice as expected. And the liquor were FAKE.

Come for the bar if you want to, not the club
okt 2018. • Parovi
We were looking forward to a night of dancing and the promised "Berlin/German" techno (-house) flair with a fairly known DJ from Munich. What we got was a nice rooftop bar with a great view and chill music but too expensive drinks. The dance floor was empty while the rooftop was full and we don't know why. Maybe people here don't enjoy dancing and rather sit outside to suck on their nitrous oxide balloons which looks rather silly if you ask. But the DJ also played a set that was too hard for the crowd/vibe on that particular night anyway so that could've added to the vacant dancefloor. The music that was played on the rooftop fit the crowd tho and was good. So if you want a chill, expensive bar with great views come here. If you want to dance: Don't bother.
