A place for beer enthusiasts

VietNamNet BridgeAt the first glance Kool Beer Store, nestled in the corner of Ham Nghi Blvd in downtown HCMC, looks rather simple with its pale yellow wooden chairs, but the bar is rich in terms of beer.

Nguyen Van Dien, the bar’s manager, said the owner came up with the idea of establishing the bar after he had traveled to several countries and had tasted many different beers.

The owner quickly realized that local drinkers frequently gather at certain restaurants with friends or partners to have a drink and a meal after work, sometimes drinking too much.

However, he did not want to have that kind of bar, so he built a cozy bar for white collar workers who wanted a glass of refreshing beer on their way home; a place to relax with a glass of beer, away from the traffic jams and evening rush hour.

“It is neither a restaurant, nor a real bar! It is just a place where travelers and passerby can pause for a drink, have a chat with their friends or meet for a business talk with colleagues” he said, adding that even though the bar’s target market is white collar workers, international travelers as well as expats will find their favorite brand of beer from their home country there.

Dien boasts that the bar serves hundreds of different kinds of beer imported from around the world such as Belgium, Holland and Germany to name a few. One can easily find a local bottle of beer for VND25,000 to a Belgium beer priced at VND360,000 per bottle.

Dien added that the owner was planning to open another Kool Beer Store in Phu My Hung Town in HCMC’s District 7 next month.

Kool Beer Store is located at 117 Ham Nghi Blvd, District 1, HCMC.
