Does Vietnam have good nightlife?

We can categorically say yes! Vietnam has amazing nightlife that can match Thailand and other parts of Asia. We found the best places to get a drink in Hanoi.

Kumquat Tree

A cool speakeasy bar located near Hanoi’s opera house. This bars entrance has a hidden red door that opens in to a dark edgy space.

Known for their cocktails and friendly staff, often live music is performed here. Once you’ve been here you’ll be telling everyone about it for ages afterwards.

The 371 Bar

If whisky is your thing then head to 371 Bar where you will be greeted by an elegant bar. Quiet and discreet vibes with hushed conversation, excellent to escape the hustle and bustle of Hanoi outside.

Lee the owner and staff here make you feel unbelievably welcome. The bar is smoke free, exceptionally clean and has an fantastic range of drinks. We loved it and so does everyone else visiting this memorable bar.

Q Bar

Located in the highest luxury hotel in Hanoi, the Landmark Continental. This 300 metre tower offers unforgettable views over Hanoi serving delicious cocktails.

The service is what you would expect of a 5* hotel with dedicated and enthusiastic staff. The prices are not unreasonable, perfect bar for couples or small groups.

Northern Soul Rooftop Bar

We’ve gone to the famous Beer corner, but this bar is situated on the 5th floor rather than at ground level. It boasts not only one rootop area but two! And is the only rootop space on the street.

Great spot to see the action going on down below in Hanoi Old Quarter. The owner and staff clearly know what they are doing and are very friendly and welcoming. Has a great selection of in house brews to enjoy.

A super trendy bar with amazing interior, Camelia Lounge is one of Hanoi’s hottest new bars with a spacious setting. Music and cocktails will make you want to come back, and the staff are friendly and attentive.
