Cargo Bar is a dedicated music and arts venue designed and committed to delivering original and diverse entertainment and lifestyle to all comers. From Cargo's location at Saigon Port, just over the bridge from District 1, it has been formed with creativity and imagination to provide a multifunctional and highly versatile venue that delivers a space and atmosphere similar to a New York studio or London warehouse. With a passionate philosophy of developing local artists and musicians and creating opportunities for international acts to come and perform, Cargo is a community project that embraces what it's audience can bring. In addition to it's international ambiance and feel, Cargo boasts a hugely dynamic quality sound and lighting experience using only the best available equipment and technical team in country. Regular features through the week will include local and international live acts, DJs, artists, photographers and artistic nights. The bar will deliver an original and bespoke cocktail menu whilst covering all the local favorites of draft beer and mixers all at a very reasonable price away from the $$'s that the city centre demands. Hand picked staff are friendly and fun and always happy to maintain our outlook of a welcoming community. Open from Wednesday through to Sundays, day times will boast a chilled escape from the city with a simple menu and the occasional live band rehearsals to the evenings offering a very eclectic musical playlist and a plethora of fantastic acts.Welcome to your new favorite place.

Went there for the Bourbon Jazz festival and the Blue/Orange show. Place is big, the decoration and furniture (setting) can be changed and moved around : very practical for different events. Drinks are okay.

This place is original. Located perfectly in D4, right over the bridge from D1 in a warehouse, I think this place is amazing. Interesting concept using pallets as decoration and tables. I think they even had a stage in the back of the warehouse where I heard they do photo shoots or even do some filming. Prices were good considering... More
