Guest’s Comment – 25th Dec 2014

“Expensive but interesting with the live music” Reviewed December 25, 2014   As a Latin I was curious about a Latin bar in Vietnam and my local friend highly recommended me this one. The bar is nice and the live music quite entertaining. It is quite expensive for Vietnamese standards (around USD 7 per beer) but maybe average for other countries prices. The music consists of 3 different acts which are way better than what I expected. The only thing is that they literally mix everything so they will be singing a song from Spain with a Mexican sombrero while moving like salsa (maybe this was the part which made my night actually). Also if you are a Spanish native speaker don't expect good pronunciation from the singers. I would probably go back to grab one beer and laugh with the mix again :)

Random Feeling

Swinging with the music in a cozy atmosphere, tasting the favourite Spanish cocktail: a glass of Sangria, enjoying some fresh fruits, dancing in the sparkling of candle-lights, we’ve found that life is so worth living. Most of the meetings are so short. There’s nothing compares to the enjoyment, joyfulness while chatting with a closed-friend with the Bohemian beauty, which is perfectly matched that place, which is set with very “bold” Gypsy style in music and interior. We would leave all the stressful and tired feelings out and soon, once again, bending down to enter that “Cellar” for all unforgettable emotions in a very near future soon. Thanks  a lot for an exciting evening!

CARMEN – the Gypsy charming Beauty

Somebody thinks that Carmen Bar looks like a nomadic chariot of Digan (or Bohemian) people. Someone says Carmen Bar seems like a wine cellar more, with an extremely "unique" design… And almost anyone who comes to Carmen Bar also is remindful of a gypsy girl with the bohemian long dresses, dancing and charismatic... All of these images exude the desire for freedom and the eternal flames of love, which can burn off the men who approach her... Even though it has been called with any "name", from the individual's imagination, Carmen Bar is still something really unique and always immediately attracts you from the first steps. Carmen Bar has been established for more than 15 years, locates on a quiet part of Ly Tu Trong street - which is considered as one of the main road in Ho Chi Minh City CBD, surrounded by multi-level buildings in modern styles.  With its unique architecture, Carmen Bar is a focal point, catches every passenger's eyes once they go pass it. When you start walking along the stony wall, the stairs will lead you to a rough wooden door. Behind that wooden door, the interior décor, in a very “bold” Acoustic style with the tables typically made of wooden barrels and “3-legs” chairs in saddle shape, makes every individual guest who enters into Carmen would feel like he/she is in a medieval castle’s cellar. And ... Here they come, the boys and girls in traditional Gypsy costume, with red shirts and long dresses, will bring to you an adequate service while enjoying the drinks you ordered. Carmen's Menu varies with different types of drinks (with or without alcohol) and the delicious cocktails, such as Carmen Special, Mojito, Don Jose, ... Especially Sangria - a Spanish traditional cocktail, which is also well-known in all over the world – has been selected as the signature-drink from the bar, often suggested to our guests who come in groups or couples, and used as a “compliment on the house” in important occasions at Carmen Bar. Carmen Bar opens from 6:30pm till midnight with live music every night. At 9pm, the stage will be filled up by singers and musicians of Carmen's house band (from Vietnam and Philippines). With different instruments including Bass, Guitars, Percussion and Piano, they will deliver a pure Gypsy style in New Flamenco and Latino music, which are considered as part of the complex music styles in the world. The Flamenco dance will lead you go to different emotions. Although, there are times when you do not understand the lyrics in Spanish, but the tone of love and life will make you feel ecstatic. You will tap your feet or clap your hands to follow the music or even step out of your table to dance with the singers. In addition, the emergence of Latino music with Salsa dance (guests who know how to dance will join the singers) in the 2nd set, makes the atmosphere becomes more playful and exciting. At end, the appearance of Mr.Quang Vinh - the singer won "the Best French-songs Singer in Saigon" hosted by French Consulate in 2012, will bring to you whether romantic or exciting French goldies, which have been very familiar with Saigonese for long time. Furthermore, the amazing thing that Carmen Bar aims to provide a "cozy-home" environment, filled in with professional music and lively dances, for you to make an escape from the stress in day-to-day living activities. The bar is not noisy, so you still can share the conversations with friends. So that's a place for everyone in all age ranges. Particularly, Carmen Bar regularly organizes exciting events on special occasions, such as guests' Birthday, Valentine's Day, Halloween Carnival... and of course, in these occasions, visitors come to Carmen will receive giving-away gifts like roses, chocolate, or champagnes... Now, please put this address into your pocket: 8 Ly Tu Trong St., Dist.1, HCMC to come up with live music from Carmen’s Band every night at 9PM! -   From Thuy Nguyet Editor -
