Driven less by a desire to recreate a certain theme – though it describes itself as a 1920s-style bar – than a wish to mix delicious drinks, Snuffbox prides itself on doing the simple things well. Those in need of a stiff dry martini or rejuvenating aviation are in luck as Harry Craddock’s celebrated Savoy Cocktail Book heavily influences the cocktail list here. In keeping with the speakeasy aesthetic, Snuffbox is hidden away in a decaying apartment complex in the centre of Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1. It doesn’t have a sign, just a logo, and fans of vintage curios will be held in thrall from the first drink to the last.
