The Studio Saigon

Written by

British bartender-artist Richie Fawcett has opened his first bar in Ho Chi Minh City, The Studio Saigon.

A departure from your typical watering hole, The Studio Saigon is part bar, part art gallery, displaying Richie’s intricate artworks of landmark streets, districts and bustling markets in the city.

Serving up a vast selection of original cocktails named after the streets of Saigon and the city’s best known personalities throughout history, the drinks are finely styled and garnished, reflecting Richie’s eye for detail as both an artist and an inventive mixologist. His passion is to place Vietnam on the international cocktail map. The cocktail menu is a reflection of Richie’s recently completed book, the Cocktail Art of Saigon, featuring 41 original recipes each accompanied by an illustration.

The Studio Saigon is open Monday to Saturday, 12 noon to 10pm, and can be found at First Floor, 42 Ly Tu Trong, Q1, HCMC. For reservations and info call 0911 906468 or tweet @FawcettRichie
