Set in a splendid early 20th century French villa in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, the Ly Club takes its name from the Ly Dynasty (1009-1225), one of Vietnam’s glorious periods of cultural and artistic development. Drawing inspiration from its namesake, the establishment combines Asian sensibility with modern style, providing an elegant oasis from the bustling and chaotic city.
Attention to detail characterizes the interior décor, from decorative chrysanthemum patterns to a portrait of soprano Lina Cavalieri by 20th-centurty Milanese painter Piero Fornasetti to oil and lacquer paintings by contemporary Vietnamese artists. A simplistic and elegant white color theme pervades the club, with deep, royal yellow upholstery enhancing the refined ambiance in seating and dining areas.
The Ly Club is divided into many functional spaces, with both fine dining rooms and cozy lounge areas. A lush and verdant outdoor area with plenty of green serves as a relaxing setting for afternoon tea or evening cocktails and outdoor events. The club’s menu also reflects the embrace of both traditional and innovative, pairing the flavors of East and West in a unique and constantly evolving menu. A dedicated staff with years of experience makes the Ly Club an ideal destination for anyone looking for a stylish escape in Saigon.
