Local flavours, coffee, wine, tunes.
An old Saigon experience in the heart of the city.


Dear Old Compass friends,

In consideration of Vietnam’s efforts to control this pandemic, we have taken the decision to close The Old Compass for 2 weeks till April 1st, 2020.

This is a very difficult time for us and for everyone. However it is important for us to protect our families and consider the safety of our staff, customers and neighbours.

Many thanks for your continuous support. We'll be back with good health and a better environment soon.

Wash your hands and keep social distance....🙂

Best wishes to everyone in the community during this difficult time.

We miss you already! ❤️❤️

Thank you!

Old Compass Team
