New venue nightclub so this review is only for the upstairs bar on the third floor.
Really interesting venue, well laid out, very professional stage and lighting, comfortable, great decor. A full New York style of upscale venue.

Positives:
- well-trained serving staff, attentive, customer service oriented, some speak English
- live entertainment every evening with a 6 piece local group and 3 vocalists,
superb lead man on tenor saxophone. two keyboardists, drums, lead and bass guitar, all competent, very 'tight' on several Western numbers
- drink menu reasonable, cocktails average 120K - 140K, no service or tax, a bargain as there is no cover charge for the free entertainment

Negatives:

- could use a few more English speakers
- music could utilize more of a Western music mix, got a bit tired of the Viet Pop scene and although the band was good the singers (with one exception) were no better than warblers at a local karaoke. To be fair, this is a high end Vietnamese nightclub (I was the only foreigner in the place)
- this place may not last as a reasonably priced venue. it was a Wednesday evening and the large room was 90% full. I suspect that it will become really popular and a cover charge may need to be employed to keep the queues from forming and compensating for patrons willing only to buy one drink (one guy and his date spent the whole evening nursing one drink)
- non-smokers beware, smoking is allowed and one of the fads in vogue is the 'hookah' smoking water pipe, although the aroma is sweet and not unpleasant. the venue is very well ventilated and air conditioned so non-smokers won't be lost in a fog.

There is also a dining room on the second floor with a menu of western and vietnamese dishes (a much more balance mix than the music upstairs). Will write a review on the dining room when we go back next week.

Definitely worth a visit, and as stated, worth a second one for me for sure.
