Why Apocalypse Now is special ?

Apocalypse Now, or colloquially, Apo, is a Saigon nightlife institution. As one of the oldest nightclubs in town, Apo dates back to American soldiers stationed in Saigon. For almost 20 years Apo has been pumping out the jams that everyone wants to shake their money maker to. You can dance the night away on two floors that play a mix of popular and trance music. Toss in an unpretentious vibe, a wicked pool table and outdoor eating area and it's easy to see why Apo is still considered one of the best nightclubs in HCMC.

Apocalypse Now usually packs the punters in like sardines on Friday and Saturday nights. Mingle with the crowd, any of whom may be fellow travellers, oil rig workers, businesspeople, teachers, working girls and security strongarms. Apo is located on Thi Sach in District 1, HCMC.

I've experienced about nightout with my partner for long years business in HCMC. We sometimes spend time in talking business with them at some lounge or wine bar, but Apocalypse is my most favorite spot, it has many parties, young local, expat crowded every week, action picks up around 11pm till late, great dance music, all staffs are enthusiastic. I always feel happy here, nice place to go to!
