Red River Tea Room

A little over five years ago, Red River Tea Room (RRTR) opened its doors, and would go on to become one of the most iconic bars in Hanoi; a uniquely chilled-out place with great staff, great drinks and Frank the dog.

East West Brewing Co.

You are struck by the scale of the place as soon as you walk up the small staircase into East West. It’s a grand arena, and the lofty ceilings match its impressive ambition. The trick is to make the large space inviting without being intimidating, and East West have pulled it off.

The Kneipe

If you blink on To Ngoc Van, you might miss The Kneipe, which only has a tiny black-and-white sign and some motorbikes outside letting you know it’s there. It’s that easy to miss.

Beer 2KU

Infamous for fueling the cheap-beer-filled nights of many a Hanoian, Beer 2KU is expanding. Already seven locations deep, the brand’s latest venture sits on prime Quang An real estate, a low-key lakefront oasis sandwiched between the fancier of Tay Ho’s eateries. The first time I passed by, I had to do a double take. Is that an actual pool inside the bar? Yes it is.

Bia Craft


90 Xuan Thuy, Q2, Tel: (08) 3744 2588

As craft beer continues to take over watering holes around Ho Chi Minh City, so a bar dedicated to all things ‘craft’ and ‘real ale’ seems like a pretty sensible idea, right? Well, it is. Only small, but with wooden tables perfect for sharing, both on tap and by the bottle, Bia Craft sells up a delectable range of the good stuff. Looking for Tiger? Go take a hike. Also has a decent food menu.
