A nice place sit, listen to load music and drink. But make sure to bring your benjamin, or else you will be treated like shit.
Security is tight here and it can be quite daunting. Very expensive. My only disappointment was having a nasty local girl stamp on me with her high heel stilletos and it was me that got moved to another spot on the dance floor. However this can happen anywhere so not to worry. Very trendy however with a lot of movers and shakers. Good energy dance music with a decent light show.
dj hoy was awsome
Expensive but good tunes – more on the vocal trance tip the night i was there. Security was a little over the top. I was in trouble for my leather shoes brushing the glass on the top floor. Crazy – Good light show and sound.

this bar piss me off. NO room and they ask me to stand while drinking…..
they keep asking me to buy wine which I dont like. I only want Beers…..
I wouldn’t be there when its so pack and you have no room to move around and the drinks are expensive……
other charge…. I say pass…..
Went there twice during my short 4-days stay in HCMC. Nice chicks around and especially enjoy teasing the 3 babes serving at the bar counter.
Fall in love with a babe in yellow jacket but too shy to ask her out 🙁
to me, tight security is good and no to mention their are very polite to me. Look at them this way, they are doing their job too.
Cheers and will go there again… for sure!!!
Too packed on fri-sat, need to get in real early otherwise waste your time to get into packed house and can’t even move inside! If you like viet skanks and hardcore doof doof otherwise time waste!
@Sam: only fools go in to clubs at late hours and expect to have a seat ready for them…
And one more thing: respect the Vietnamese and stop labelling Asians as skanks etc…
I’m a Singaporean expat and one thing that I keep hearing from the Vietnamese is this – white people (aka the Americans & British) are scums of the earth who pay little respect to Vietnamese culture and people. Sad thing as there are many other Americans and British expats who aren’t like that but sad anyway to see many tourists behaving like they own the country. Pathetic folks.
@Sam: disclaimer – I have nothing against Americans or the Brits as I have fellow expats who hail from there and respect Vietnamese culture etc…
But what irks me is some of those tourists who dun simply know how to behave themselves? Sigh…
Love this bar:X . The day I joined this bar, I watched Michael Jackson show here. I like the dancers. They’re so awesome. The securities are kind and cute. They tried to stops the other guys who near my place, when those guys bothered us. I’ll come back soon.
I was at that club on a night and seems pretty cool, but we left to go to see Ibiza D.J Coco Ariaz at D&D Club and this is what we really call quality, excellent D.J and make us go so crazy and dancing that night….just incredible! Love you coco ariaz!
Yeah Anna, I agree with you because we see the ads of this Ibiza D.J and after that we go straight away to this club d&d, the dj rocks the place like i’ve never seen before here in ho chi minh, excellent, great night with greatest music that drives us and all the crowd there rocking!! five stars to this dj coco ariaz!!
p diddy says
guys guys guys!
i been to this place a few times now and this place rocks.. music, lights, security and the crowds are awesome!
guys who says it expensive.. its not.. have you to other clubs in saigon? its the same shit!
good thing abt this place is that you’ll never get cops raiding the place.. the owners are connected to the government 😉
bring some of your own girls to dance with or you can get a service chick to come to the table.. just gotta give a tip at the end
This club is one of the best nightclub in saigon. I’ve visited nearly all of the bars/nightclubs that saigon have to offer during my 4 weeks trip in vietnam.
The place is crowded everytime i went there… the securities, the services and drinks are great and i never forget those hot sexy local vietnamese girls.
They’re really easy to talk to, every night i go girls come up to me on the dancefloor asking for my name and phone number and inviting me back to their table for drinks… i guess vietnamese girls love tall and handsome blokes hahaha
I’ll definately come back here again
Andrew Thompson says
This night clb is awsome securty should be on more money they are greate i became frends with all the staff they looked after me and my mates like kings and i will be back love vietnam
Nothing compared as the night we been into D&D for dj Coco Ariaz, I have been lately in my last trip to Vietnam to this place and it looks ok, but the music & dj….so far away of that night at D&D with that Ibiza dj that me and my fellas had..really awesome and what is called “great music”..so far, my best night in Saigon without doubt…i can’t wait to see this dj coco ariaz again rocking the club in the form he do it!!
Gossip.. Great music and lovely girls all u find there. But the thing is u’ll find a very clever staff over there. I went there once, I was alone and just wanted to have few drinks. So I ordered a glass of Red Lable and a can of soda. And I had a 5 glasses and after every each shot they charged me 100,000 VND. 75,000VND for Red Lable and 25,000 for the Soda. But I know they served me only one soda because i never mix a lot of soda when I’m drinking. One can of Soda was more than enough for that 5 shots. But they charged me for 5 sodas and 5 Red lable shots. Acctually I knew what’s happening there. I just let them to cheat me. Because I never wanna go there again. Nice Club, Great Music… Cheating Staff…
my local friends booked us a couch when we went because she is friends with the manager and we had the most fantastic time.. the service was great some of the local girl not so great but hey who cares you get that in any club and it only cost 200AUD for the night for 4 of us which is as much as it would cost for one person back home.. i’m only disappointed that i discovered it the night before i left.. will defiantly be going back
Nice place, nice people, but definitely too noisy for me. I m probably to old. lol
Very good place to be. Went there 7 or 8 times in a 10 days stay in Ho Chi Minh. Being French, I was more into Parisioan nightlife. Then I discovered Tokyo where I stayed a while (Womb club, especially). In spite of all that, nights at the Gossip were memorable. Security is secure, and can be extremely friendly if you treat them with a minimum of respect.
Waitresses and supervisors can speak a good english and are very enjoyable people.
We made friends there, among locals and expats.
Music is loud and entertaining. I’d say conventional house/dance music. No hard electro, no trance, a little slice of Hip Hop from times to times.
Of course, remember that you are in Vietnam. They will do everything they can to make you buy their most expensive stuff, but even if you think you can’t, you can just tell them what you really want and you’ll get it. Just have to understand how it works.
You must give it a try. One thing’s for sure, I’ll go back there as soon as I go to HCMC again.
Mike jones says
haha went there last summer about 15 times. bought like 20 something bottles. we knew the manager so we got the hook up and security protected us. it just depend on who u know and how u act and how much money u have. ur in asia, that’s the way it is.
Dan Tyler says
One of the more decent clubs HCM has to offer. Music is fantastic, light show needs an upgrade. Staff is friendly, Waitresses (Phuc Du – Must Tip for Talk) are HOT!, Security is uber friendly (Do not TIP guards). The only advice I can offer is watch out for the Owner, not the manager. He’s the owner and therefore should have the unmost respect of your personal space and table. He’ll occasionally swing by grab a girl from your table he’s fond of and grope & dance with her. I just got back from 5 weeks in HCM, 4 of those nights were spent at Gossip. My girlfriend and I were fed up and left the club around midnight while her friends stayed back. He got my gf’s number from her friends and haven’t stopped texting and calling her. It’s very unprofessional and quite sad. But you’ll it from a few clubs not “ALL”. I’m Vietnamese myself, but if your looking for fun stick to Lush, and 121 (the new 030). Best nights of my life there.
i dont like , expensif for nothing , song realy so strong and many bitch stay here
Awesome club. Tons of girls, some are working, others are normal girls out partying. If you got game, you’ll pick up. I’ve pulled normal girls and working girls. All good. The liquors are all knock offs (aren’t they all in vn/asia? with exception of some of the 5 star western hotel chains), I do the bottles but avoid drinking them, get the staff to drink them. I am there for the girls not alcohol! Just be careful of some of the gay host/manager they like massaging/groping the arms of tall handsome well built men.
Ask me how I know…
Anh Long says
One of the best clubs in saigon. We always get VIP service when we go. Mebbe cuz we buy 8 bottles of XO at a time. I’m just saying.
@geno_cide: u prolly give off a gay vibe. Aint hatin’ playa. Do ur thang. Just don’t salt my game.
Anh Khai says
Great club, great times. I just get two bottles of Richard Hennessy and party all night.
Nice club lot of Hot mamas, make sure u bring lot of cash other wise u ll be treated like second class citizen here lol. the dancer are very pretty but kinda STUCK UP! be very careful with the check possibly over charging you for no reasons especially when you are wasted.
i had fun spent gribs of $$$$
Great club, good music, more for vietnamese than tourists, lots of x being taken by the locals to enjoy themselves! Careful who you bump into or piss off there are alot of big important vietnamese gangs that are there often with alot of pull when it comes to the under world of vietnam. lots of hot woman and whores though these bitches are out for the big bucks!
I thought that this was a very cool. I have a blast there whit some of my friends. I give this place a 8.5 out of a 10 everything was great. I have read some of you guys comment and I think some of you are so lame. . . .oh it tooo much, security to much , oh I only want beer. . . price to ” HOT ” for you well then dont go there . . . .no one make anyone of you go hihihhihi . . . . Over all this CLUB is very cool.
Fake ass alcohol. Paid 100 bucks to get sick there.
Club the best in SaiGon bar.
Great club in SG. Nice babe.Great trance.
Too all the chumps that says its costly to go here. Get a real job. Save up. Then go on vacation. Don’t think you can go on vacation with 500 dollars. Noobs.
This club rocks. Service is awesome. Security is top notch. Then again, I always buy bottle service here. Even in my country, bottle service doesn’t even compare.
This bar sucks, typical Vietnamese night club, same music repeats al the time. I don’t recommend any foreigner to visit there. Apocalypse or Lush bar very much better.
awesome club, many sexy men. be careful in the toilet, owner harassed me there
DJ Dennis says
This bar is my legacy.I was the first DJ of this club who rocked the place.
DJ Dennis says
Ask DJ’s all over Saigon who DJ Dennis from Philippines is.Gossip is still my baby. I kept the place number 1 for 10 years since it started back in 1996.
been to Saigon late Oct. 2013, Gossip is still LOUD and can be fun
You just have to always remember
– where you are
– whose guest you are
– don’t interfere with the locals at the sofa tables or others who are obviously rolling out big bucks
-> can be a chance it’s legitimit local celebrities or other perfecdtly acceptable social level
-> can as well be someone from the other end, you really don’t want to piss those off
More than likely a good chance for working girls on the weekends, but during the week it’s mainly staff (dancers and so on), but if they’re placed on your table and try to push you buying what you might not want (incl. lady drinks for them – which get’s you nothing) just decline, but politely! Is perfectly acceptable to them and then they leave you alone.
Just keep in mind: don’t behave like the regular western prick who thinks “the world is mine” – treat people with dignity and respect and then you can have fun, sometimes big-time fun, almost anywhere, even at Gossip in Saigon.
How much is a bottle of Hennessy?
Sarah and Adrian says
Its a very nice nightclub, the DJ was very good and the waiters were all very friendly and gently and the people are cool! 😀
What happened to Gossip Club? Closed? Moved? Appreciate if somebody could update. Thanks.
