SAIGON OUTCAST, Ho Chi Minh City. With bright-colored vandals decorating the entrance, I knew I was in for a real hipster treat. It started as a slow, lazy Sunday and I straightway ordered a bottle of beer at the bar counter. I contemplated whether I should order fresh coconut instead, but decided to stray away from being sober. I imagined I was in some hipster-Coachella-esque party in Vietnam — come to think of it, the venue was massive enough to hold close to a thousand guests for a single foam, urban party. It was quirky and I love it.
