La Fenetre Soleil is a cool cafe by day that morphs into a music venue and bar by night. The feel changes from night to night with DJs and live music. The live varies from rock, to jazz, to acoustic and there's also a popular open-mic session as well. The crowd's a friendly mix of expats and locals seeking something different from standard club and bar offerings. When it's busy, the toilet queues can be a drag, as can the thick cloud of cigarette smoke that often fills the place. Otherwise, well worth a look.

I came to Saigon paying music in November 2013 and I enjoyed playing at La Fenetre a lot. I have played in a number venues around Saigon, but I liked La Fenetre the most. I believe now they have a new Grand Piano and they really picked up the live music scene. They have a lot Jazz musicians playing there on the weekdays. And a spot for live bands on the weekend. It is nice because they have a pretty decent sound system and they seem to have a good crowd coming in every time we played. Most of the crowd was foreign. Service is very good and friendly. And to my surprise they served Indonesian food, my favorite food in the world.
