If you are tired of hitting up Backpacker’s or the usual clubs, Ala Mezon is a great alternative to the Saigon nightlife scene. With a variety of rooms to choose from, Ala Mezon can suit almost any occasion. Although I have yet to try the food menu, they offer a mix of Japanese and French cuisine and have a dining room on the ground floor. As you make your way through the multiple floors of Ala Mezon you can find anything from an outdoor roof top lounge area, a room with a Wii and Rockband, a Hello Kitty suite complete with a variety of board games, and a floor with a live DJ and seats at the bar. The cocktails at Ala Mezon range from about 80,000 – 100,000 VND, but are so worth the dong you pay. I’ve tried the So Flavor Tea (vodka, green tea liqueur, shiso leaf and cranberry juice) and the Sake Mojito, both of which are so refreshing and delicious. I also tried Ashley’s Love Valley (tequila, fresh strawberries, honey and lime) and Nicky’s Pink Margarita (tequila, cointreau and raspberry gren.) the other night and I would highly recommend both of those drinks. The atmosphere at Ala Mezon is stylish and relaxed and is good for groups since there are a number of small rooms you can have to yourselves.
Ala Mezon is located at 10 Chu Manh Trinh, District 1.
