Literally, the best place for Rock fans. RFC is the haven for heavy rock live bands – if you’re looking for jazz this is definitely not the place. The sound system is great and crisp for live performance and the line up itself has some western rock hits!
The place isn’t that huge to hold up much of a crowd and it would be best to call and reserve a table for your group unless you’d like to mosh pit all night round while holding your beer. Drinks at this place ranges from 100,000 VND to 220,000 VND.
Opening Hours: 6:00 PM – 12:00 AM
Address: 25C Tu Xuong Street, District 3
