Anatomy of a Nightclub

Written by

Lush Saigon

Ladies’ Night at Lush Nightclub is one of the biggest parties in Ho Chi Minh City, and it draws in over a thousand partiers week after week. The dance floor is consistently packed shoulder-to-shoulder, swaying and shifting to soundtracks by some of Vietnam’s biggest DJ names alongside the occasional international superstar. Lush has been one of the most popular nightclubs in the city for nearly a decade, continuously raising the bar in clubbing with every new phase of development.

The Way We Were

Written by

Millenium New Year

Tasked with tapping into the hazy nostalgic memories of 1990s Saigon, it was suggested by one person I spoke to that we voyage on a downtown pilgrimage to see where the bars used to be or still are. Our arms were twisted as we joined the trail.

Heartbeat Saigon is about to celebrate one whole year of music and mayhem in Ho Chi Minh City. Never to let a celebration go by without some seriously hot names in music, Heartbeat Saigon is celebrating their first birthday this Saturday, Dec 14 at Cargo Bar and presenting none other than Gregor Welz.

Little Vietnam in London

I always knew I wanted to come to Vietnam when I first stepped foot into a Vietnamese restaurant in 2006. The photos of Halong Bay, Hoi An and Sapa on the walls, the musical rhythm of the chatter in the kitchen and then there was the food. To me, this was food I could eat every day with the delicate balance of sweet, sour, salt, bitter and umami coupled with the fragrant, herby soups and salads.

Ice Rink

I first remember visiting Royal City and being amazed to find a 1,280sqm ice rink in Vietnam, not only because of the summer heat but also for the fact it’s inside an underground shopping mall. Wonders will never cease, I thought, especially when I saw everyone but the instructors clinging to the sides, or wobbling along with a plastic penguin for support.

Elixir of Life

“If you are an outsider looking in at urban surface water you can see two main things. One is the production of water — getting it out of the river and making it clean — and the second part is the distribution through a network of pipes to customers.”
