Keep your spirits up at Latitude 10
· 26 March 2020
Get into the mood at Latitude 10, a cafe by day moonlighting as a creative cocktail bar by night.
Trendy, cozy, intimate, and chill; these words describe Le Méridien Saigon’s cafe lounge and bar, Latitude 10, to a T. Connected to a sweeping lobby and designed with large open spaces and shades of vibrant burgundy, red, and orange, this eclectic space undergoes a transformation each day when the sun begins to dip below the Saigon River.
By day, the space buzzes with energy as businessmen meet over a cup of crafted coffee, freelancers work on their latest creations, and hotel guests plan their daily activities. Anyone can take advantage of the “Work at Latitude 10” package running from 9-5 which includes free-flow tea and coffee along with a gourmet healthy lunch, all for VND 350,000 (USD 15).
As the light begins to fade through the floor to ceiling windows, the paneled menus behind the bar silently flip from a background of white to black as the evening’s latest concoctions come out to play and the live band strums its first chords. Happy hour runs from 5-8 pm offering an all-you-can-drink deal on red, white, and sparkling wines, as well as margaritas, martinis, and craft beer, all in a seductive evening glow of dimmed lights and sultry music.
In addition, Latitude 10’s craft cocktail series takes mixology to a whole new level by creating classic cocktails such as the Manhattan and Old Fashioned and then aging them inside oak barrels. The Ca Phe Negroni in particular, a modern take on a traditional favourite, is a huge crowd pleaser.
