The Apocalypse Ho Chi Minh City Reviews
Apocalypse Vietnam, The one and Aggressive Night Bar Aug 07, 2011
When you ask hotel's receptionist. Restaurant waiters or even taxi drivers. "What is the hottest bar for tourist in the metropolis? They will name one, but Apocalypse.
I have never been to the other bar yet in Ho Chi Minh City but being trapped in Apocalypse on late night Friday was total disgust.
We walked through the roads of darkness literally to get into the place. Because when you ask the locals around they would tell us to just walk. And perfectly they were exactly correct. The place is located almost in the dead end side of the road. With only a stand alone venue for night life in that street, it is quite obvious to hear the pounding of the speakers while we marched 100 meters away.
We arrived at the faced of the place labelled Apocalypse in red text and the queue from outside is like you are attending a ceremony indoor celebration. The bumper men were very strict on the their policy but that is supposed to be. However, in Asia like this place, it is undeniably true that there are BLUE ribbon access to those who were tagged as influential names. There was a long queue of impulsive party goers including us party curious when suddenly there was a group of young adults that were given a special privilege to get ahead on the entrance. They look obviously as locals.
Inside, the venue is divided into four parts. The main lounge for disco, the pool bar, the restaurants and the 1st level another disco lounge. The settings are plain and simple. no chairs are laid in rows. The used empty barrels for their tables.
The restaurants are perpetually serving foods for those who wanted to stay and listened only to the music without being disturbed by the movements of the electrified party goers.
There are resemblance of tourist and locals mixed. The place is consider descent by dress mode. Tourist even have worn casual dress the like of the locals although we did not complied such.
If this is the hottest place in Ho Chi Minh City people should not expect that the party at night in from Bangkok alive in Vietnam. In fact the visit to Apocalypse is truly a waste of time. Nothing much to say it was a party place.
