Dress to impress at the aptly named Social Club, where silks should do nicely.
The hotel has three exceptional restaurants. On the 23rd floor, the upscale Social Club, run by Chef Egidio Latorraca, serves seasonal dishes inspired by European flavours in a wood-panelled space designed by Japanese firm Super Potato. Open for dinner only, the restaurant serves dishes like truffle gnocchi, signature ratatouille and charcoal-grilled options like Australian wagyu beef, with a coconut soufflé for dessert. The bustling Saigon Kitchen Restaurant is inspired by Asian street food markets, serving Indochine and Western dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner from a central open kitchen surrounded by tables. The menu includes traditional Vietnamese options like pho, caramelised chicken wings and grilled pork with vermicelli noodles, along with an assortment of pan-Asian and Western bistro dishes. More of a lounge than a full restaurant, Café des Beaux Arts is open all day, but especially popular for lunch and afternoon tea, serving traditional Vietnamese coffee, tea and light bites, including summer rolls and sandwiches.
There are two. The beautifully carved wood bar at Social Club dates to 1901, which makes a fitting backdrop to the jazz music and classic cocktails with a twist, including a menu inspired by YSL fragrances. Upstairs, the Social Club Rooftop Bar is a pool bar open from 9am until 1am, with icy wine and beer, and excellent all-day cocktails.
At Saigon Kitchen, breakfast is served from 6am to 10.30am on weekdays (11am on weekends); lunch is offered from noon to 2pm and dinner from 6pm to 10pm. At Social Club, dinner is served from 5.30pm to midnight.
A full array of local and Western dishes is available for delivery anytime.
