Old timer

Its décor is reminiscent of typical bars from the early 20th century. You half expect Rick Blaine from Casablanca to make an appearance. Black and white pictures adorn the walls, black and white movies are screened on the TV near the front door, and music from the 1950s and 1960s adds to the classic style. Its drinks menu is also unique. A wide range of cocktails are offered that follow the timeline of cocktail history, with a brief introduction to and the ingredients of each. Along with basic drinks, craft cocktails are served that are inspired by famous people from the 20th century, like The Tramp (Charlie Chaplin), Churchill, Hemingway, and Scot & Zeda. A diverse selection of American whisky, brandy, wines and cigars are also on offer. Prices are a touch expensive than elsewhere, at VND120,000-180,000 on average.
