Ba Cay Choi (The Three Broomsticks Town)

In the name of discovery and progression, we stumbled into Ba Cay Choi (The Three Broomsticks Town) on Phan Xich Long thinking it was a hip watering hole due to the log-cabin exterior (shades of Karga- the coolest bar in Istanbul), a stark contrast from Saigon's norm.  While it wasn't exactly a bar and the drinks served weren't the kind that contain alcohol, we were pleasantly surprised by what we found through those wooden doors: a Harry Potter/LOTR-inspired fantasy world.  The spindly, labyrinthine building houses a kitchen, movie theater, restaurant/bar, private party room, a photo studio, Wii playroom, and a work shop to complete the many DIY kits they sell.  Basically, this has to be the perfect place in Saigon to throw a party for kids.  To add to its mystique, no photos were allowed inside  Read more about it here.

 After a few "brews", I splurged on one of the DIY dolls (69,000 VND).

I got to crafting last week.

 Despite the completely Vietnamese directions, I think my little strawberry outfit turned out quite alright:

 Ba Cay Choi is located at 141 Phan Xich Long in Phu Nhuan.  Visit their website here.
