Hanoi Rock City

Pioneering, creative and cultural. This multi-platform music venue focuses on edgy local rock music. Live acts and DJs every night. We love the setup, and there is even an outdoor zone if you need a break from the dancefloor.

The Hanoi Social Club

For something a bit more intimate, try this café and artist hub. Cosmopolitan in style and in vibe, it’s packed with healthy food, cold-brewed coffee and IPA beer. Best enjoyed with good friends. Chairs are not always necessary.

Hanoi Walking Street

Not a venue, but a lifestyle. It’s truly Vietnam, maybe even Indochine 2.0. We had to include it. Take a walk, find a bar and settle in for a few beers. Unlike the other places on this list, expect traditional music, local food and contemporary folk styles.
