HAI BA TRUNG
35 Hai Ba Trung. Small with just a few girls of average to slightly above quality. A balcony level with a pool table where you can get to know the girl better. **
49 Hai Ba Trung. Fairly large bar, long and narrow with a back room, which has a 2nd pool table and where things can be quite cozy. Girls are usually more plentiful and in general a bit cuter than at 35. **
51 Hai Ba Trung. A bit smaller than 49. Better than average selection and quality (more so than 49). This one seems to get new girls more often than most, and the occassional gorgeous one. They also have 2 pool tables, one in back and another on balcony level. ***
91 Hai Ba Trung. This bar is the biggest and has the most girls, and they tend to be prettiest in general, also younger, taller. It is the one bar where things tend to be least cozy, but if your preference is looks over service, this is the one to visit. ****
Saigon NY -- Small bar near the corner of Dong Du and Hai Ba Trung, actually off HBT street. It's very friendly there, and girls are slightly below average in general. They're less pushy and usually more human than most of the bars though -- some girls wear ao dais. There is a pool table upstairs. **
29 Dong Khoi is on the last block before the Majestic Hotel. It has 2 levels and lots of girls, but in terms of looks they're usually nothing special. It is the one bar of all of them that offers the most in terms of customer service. There are couches upstairs and also a little private room in the back. **1/2
49 Dong Khoi is a depressing little bar way in the back and upstairs after walking down a long hallway. The girls are really not very pretty in this one. " "
MAC THI BUOI
Thien Loc, corner of Hai Ba Truong and Mac Thi Buoi. Dark interior in this one and the girls tend to be more attentive to customer service. The darkness helps things along. **1/2
Cali is a small bar down Mac Thi Buoi street from Thien Loc. Just a few girls, usually below average in looks. *
THAI VAN LUNG
Smiley Bar -- Thai Van Lung street at intersection of Cao Ba Quat (where Vasco's used to be). Big bar, selection is slightly below average. Upstairs they have rooms with pool tables. Things get much more entertaining upstairs. **
Up Thai Van Lung, after you cross Le Thanh Ton, there are 2 more bars.
The first one is called just "3" now. Small bar, selection usually below average. " "
On Thai Van Lung near the corner of Le Thanh Ton, at the top of the "hill" is a bar that is now called Chot Nho. Selection and quality here is usually below average. Pool table and sofas in back. *
LE THANH TON
Quan Nho is a very small bar with just a few girls. Upstairs Japanese style seating areas. *
Bin Bin is next, just across the alley. This bar has second most and second prettiest after 91. Quality of the girls here is quite good, sometimes excellent. It has an upstairs for further entertainment. ***
There is one more bar like this a few doors up Le Thanh Ton, seems to be the sister bar of Bin Bin. I can't remember the name of it. It's medium size, average girls. **
I'd say the top tier of these bars (in terms of likelihood of finding a stunning girl) includes #35, #49, #51 and #91 on HBT, and also Bin Bin on LTT. Middle tier would be the Smiley bar, Thien Loc on HBT and maybe Saigon NY. The rest are in the lower tier. They're usually disappointing with the very occassional surprise. 29 makes up for its shortcomings in other ways, but would probably have to go in the middle tier in terms of looks. Lower tier on a bad night. The bars on Thai Van Lung, I don't even bother with at this point. They're not even trying to get a good selection of girls in those places. One thing I'll say, the bars that don't get as many hot girls also are the wildest ones, and they do occasionally get hot girls. So you strike it lucky when that happens. One of the hottest girls at 91 used to work at Cali for example, and those were nice times when she did. It's always worth taking a peek in to see what they have.
