Top 8 Places Where To Drink In Hanoi
What’s your favourite drink? Cocktails, craft beer, wine or whiskey, which one of these will you choose? Here are, in my opinion, Hanoi’s 8 greatest drinking holes ranging from wine lounges to craft beer pubs to themed bars, so let’s get started…
Pub grub, tapas, and Vietnamese cuisine are all popular options for food and drink venues. $$$
It’s important to know what sets good bars apart from exceptional ones. Decor? Obviously, I say. Atmosphere? Obviously. Cocktails? It’s a no-brainer. Everything about Tadioto is top-notch and it’s just a few blocks from the Opera House but a world away from the commotion of the city’s Old Quarter.
All of Nguyen Qui Duc’s hobbies are reflected in the design of his Vietnamese-American eatery. People, alcohol, and an enticing atmosphere in a dimly lit space are what make a Hanoi night out memorable, especially on event nights.
Tapas, Pub Grub, Craft Ale Bar, Contemporary, $$$
Craft beer aficionados must make a pit stop at Standing Bar. It’s not just a great place to get a great beer, but it also hosts a variety of foreign and local comedic performers. But don’t be fooled by its name; there are lots of places to relax. It has an upstairs patio that overlooks the Truc Bach Lake, making it significantly more lively at night.
RED RIVER TEA ROOM
Contemporary, Asian, and Bar $$$
When you go into the Red River Tea Room, you get the impression that you’ve stumbled into the home of an elderly gentleman looking for peace and quiet where non smoking is also encouraged. Table games, a rooftop patio with views of the West Lake, table tennis, a modest selection of craft and bottled beer, some cheap excellent cuisine and quiz nights are all part of the fun.
There’s even a tiny dog to cuddle with. It’s hard to predict what you’ll find inside.
Drinking establishments such as taverns and pubs $$$
88 Lounge, a contemporary industrial venue with a laid-back vibe, opened in 2013 and features an amazing selection of wines from across the world.
Four stories of bar and lounge areas allow you to enjoy your drink on the garden patio or on the top floors, where you’ll be able to take in the views of the lake. Attend one of their regular wine tasting events to get your hands on some of the most sought-after wines from renowned labels.
Bars, cafes, and restaurants serving pub food $$$
A themed bar, Bar Betta is authentically themed, with original gramophones, vinyl records, antique phones, a TV, and radios from the golden age of Hollywood. All of this takes place in a stunning mansion from the French colonial era.
When the sun goes down, the rooftop bar transforms into a wild party scene, complete with cheap bottled beer, wine, and cocktails.
BIA HOI JUNCTION
Bia Hoi Junction, located in the heart of Hanoi’s Old Quarter, is widely recognised as the city’s most important hotspot for nightlife. The bia hoi (Vietnamese draught beer) can be had for as little as VND 5,000 in this region, making it a favourite destination for travellers.
Many shophouses with plastic seats spilling out into the streets, as well as improvised kiosks selling a variety of delicacies, including as fried tofu, peanuts, and beef jerky, create a bustling scene.
Keep an eye on your valuables and your wits about you because this place gets crowded quickly. For those looking to drink cheaply while still getting a taste of local culture, Bi Hoi Junction is an excellent option. Hanoi’s nightlife would not be the same without the carnival.
LEGEND BEER HANOI
Downtown Hanoi’s Legend Beer occupies the third story of a building. It’s famed for its open-air balcony that overlooks the hectic street activity. Ten minutes’ walk from Hoan Kiem Lake, the bar is located on Dinh Tien Hoang.
After a long day of sightseeing in Hanoi, travellers frequently stop by this pub to unwind. It offers lager, dark stout, and wheat beers on the bar menu.
Legend Beer Hanoi features German-style fare such pork knuckles and sausages, as well as its own brews. Aside from the vista, most people come here to take advantage of the terrace’s low elevation and get a close-up look at the busy streets below. Because of this, the bar’s prices are a little more than others in the area’s Old Quarter.
The bar is open from 11:00 a.m. to 23:00 p.m. every day, however it gets extremely crowded after sunset. Tourists and photographers alike go to this location to capture the commotion of the Hanoi roundabout below. One way to capture some fascinating night images is to use a slow shutter speed and a tripod (or a very stable hand).
Because of this, the scooters and cabs that use the road have bright trail lights. This hostel is located in the heart of the Vietnamese capital, in the district of Tue Tinh.
Guests will appreciate the well equipped accommodations and the on-site amenities. Hanoi has transformed itself from a city that was previously inhospitable to tourists into one of Southeast Asia’s most alluring destinations. in which lakes, tree-lined avenues and green public spaces coexist with French Colonial buildings.
The Old Quarter’s temples, monuments, and other remnants of Vietnamese history make Hanoi a fitting representative of Vietnam’s past.

O’Leary’s Sports Bar Hanoi in Hoan Kiem District is part of a Swedish franchise business and features two floors of comfy chairs, vintage sports memorabilia, 50 screens showing the most recent sports events and a breezy terrace that overlooks the bustling streets below.
