Saigon Outcast was born early 2012 with 3 shipping containers stacked akibo on a grassy block of land, next came DIY wood plank swings, zen garden, I-beam torri gate, fridge of beer, a half-pipe and a whole lot of good vibes. We are genuine 100% creative that love a good BBQ and basically just want to encourage creative expression in all shapes and forms. Peace, love, BBQ's and motorcycles. Please check our event page for on face book > saigonoutcast > event for more info. Note: TUES + WED are workshops days. When there are no workshops, those days can be very quiet and peaceful. THURS we have outdoor cinema screening variety of handpicked foreign films and documentaries. (Movie starts at 8, come early to find best seating) FRI Jameson Jam session: Social gathering and communal practice session. One free jameson drink for performers. (Come at 8 to Jam) SAT is super quiet if we dont have an event or private bookings. SUN is family day with music, live graffiti and usually very busy. (best come after 4) Outcast is a venue and creative space for artists, musicians, skaters etc. A self serviced bar.. Pick up a skateboard if you want to skate, buy our spray paints to tag your graffiti art, go to bar to order food and drinks. If you want excellent service and fine cuisine then this is not a place for you.

Certainly a unique place and pretty sure it's breaking a heap of health and safety regulations (rock climbing with beer and skateboarding a definite no no in Australia) Good beers and nice open area / beer garden. Worth a visit.

Go for the rock climbing wall! This place has become a must-see for travelers and locals alike because it has weekend markets and an awesome atmosphere. There is often live music, lots of space for kids to run around, and full menu.

We got a GRAB taxi for about 20 minutes only to find out this place was closed, there was rock climbing still open but we were there for food, drinks, shopping, etc. Sweet artwork plasters the inside and outside of this venue.

Great place to catch up with friends while the kids entertain themselves. Older kids can do the climbing wall while there is plenty for the little ones. Don't go here for the food. Was ok but not great.

Honestly I don't know why people go to this place, it is small and boring. And the entrance ticket costs 20,000 VND, it doesn't make any sense. There are many fun markets in Saigon, for example, the box market or holiday market, they are far...More
