I've been going to O'Brien's for about a decade when visiting in HCMC. I used to frequent more often. It's a central pub with a good atmosphere if you're going for a post-work drink. But as a tourist this last time, the stale, dank smell...More

I usually avoid Irish bars because they are usually a total rip-off. O Brien's is not. A nice Irish style bar with nice staff and a friendly owner. Paid two visits during my stay. The first was early evening and it was uncrowded. The second...More
