You want to find an elegant and romantic also to celebrate the special day? Let’s discover top 5 bars in Hanoi that will give you amazing experiments!
1. The Rooftop Bar
It’s by no means the highest bar in Hanoi but the views, especially from the outside terrace, are certainly a selling point.
Popular with well-heeled Vietnamese youth seeking a classy environment in which to party, the bar hosts resident DJs every night, supported by guest DJs and occasional live acts. It’s not going to suit everyone, but if you like your music loud and your views expansive, it might be up your street. Bear in mind that you’ll also need a deep wallet: drinks are pricey even during happy hour (all day until 21:00) with beer starting at 75,000 VND for a draft Tiger and cocktails running from 145,000 VND. Spirits are available by the bottle as well as the glass.
Alternatively, go along during the day for a more peaceful drink or lunch on the terrace: as well as being a bar, The Rooftop is also an all-day dining venue, with breakfast starting at 08:00 and dinner running until 21:00. The menu covers a range of both Western and Asian cuisine and prices are far more reasonable than for drinks.
