Caravelle Saigon has just pulled back the curtain on a fully refreshed Café de l’Opera and all-new Champagne Corner. Both venues are positioned on the ground floor, where Caravelle has presided over a prominent corner of Lam Son Square since 1959.

Formerly the Lobby Lounge, Café de l’Opera boasts an unrivalled perspective on the Saigon Opera House and historic Dong Khoi Street. The café has been redesigned and expanded to allow even better views of the city centre. Among the highlights at Café de l’Opera are nightly live music 05:00pm – 10:00pm from our resident duo of Sitti and Jasson, Tuesday to Saturday and an open kitchen serving tapas.

Nearby, Champagne Corner is tucked into a stylish nook in the hotel’s entrance on Dong Khoi Street. Through partnership with Moet Hennessy and their leading Champagne houses, Caravelle’s Champagne Corner offers patrons the finest French bubbly, paired with a selection of small bites, oysters, truffles and caviar. Connoisseurs can look for vintages from Dom Perignon, as well as time-honoured labels from Veuve Clicquot and Moet & Chandon.

In November, Caravelle Saigon unveiled its redesigned lobby, reception area and buffet restaurant, Nineteen. In April, a top to toe enhancement programme of all accommodation will start with completion expected in early 2016.
