1900 Le Theater Bar

Address: 8 Ta Hien street, Hoan Kiem district, Hanoi

1900 Le Theatre bar, located on Ta Hien street, Hanoi's "non-sleeping street," has long been a popular hangout spot for the city's youth. The pub is located on the site of the historic Quang Lac theatre, which was built more than a century ago and whose name means "spreading joy." A group of young people who share a passion for traditional values banded together to resurrect a dormant establishment, and thus 1900 Bar, a nightclub, was formed, retaining the classic spirit of the previous century.

1900 Le Theater has become the "heart" of Ta Hien since its beginnings, making the already crowded area more more so, especially at night. The best time to visit 1900 Le Theater is between 11 a.m. and 1 a.m., when it "alive" in the genuine sense of the word.

If you come here on the weekend, you may have to pay for service fee more than on weekdays, but this will not deter you due to the presence of world-famous DJs. Drinks at the bar are typically priced between 60,000 and 120,000 VND.

Camelia Lounge

Address: 3rd floor, Melia Hanoi hotel, 44B Ly Thuong Kiet street, Hai Bai Trung district, Hanoi

Camelia Lounge is noted for its opulent and stylish interior, which has wood, leather, and lacquered walls. Without mentioning Vietnam, one might easily mistake this for any party location in Dubai, Macau, or Singapore based on the photographs.

Camelia is a Hanoi bar that combines classic international lounge music with the most current music trends. From Electronic Lounge, Deep Vocal House, Latin Grooves, Vintage, Funky House, and Global Soul... Camelia's DJs and foreign DJs frequently appear here, therefore the music "quality" is likely to be higher than in other bars.

Camelia Lounge is a little pricey, but there's no need to complain about the quality. Drinks will cost around 200,000 VND or more, which is hardly outrageous in a "luxurious" setting like Camelia.


Binh Minh’s Jazz Club

Address:  1 Trang Tien, Phan Chu Trinh, Hoan Kiem district, Hanoi

Binh Minh’s Jazz Club is set behind Hanoi Opera House along Trang Tien Street, just a five-minute walk from the luxurious Hotel de l’Opera Hanoi. Prominent attractions such as Hoan Kiem Lake, National Museum of Vietnamese History and Museum of the Vietnamese Revolution are also within walking distance from the jazz bar.

A legendary nightlife spot in Hanoi French Quarter, Binh Minh’s Jazz Club is the place to catch live music performances by some of the finest jazz musicians in the city. It was established back in 1998 by pioneering Vietnamese jazz artist Quyen Van Minh, who has performed across the world.

Exuding an intimate yet welcoming ambience, Binh Minh’s Jazz Club features minimal décor, cosy seats, warm lighting, and efficient service while the menu comprises classic cocktails, imported beers, whiskies, and coffee, as well as a selection of western and Vietnamese delicacies.

Drinks at Binh Minh’s Jazz Club are pricier compared to most bars in Hanoi, starting from VND 65,000 onwards. However, many patrons would agree that the prices are more than fair due to the quality of the live entertainment and lack of cover charge.

Hero Club Hanoi

Address: 42M Yen Phu, Truc Bach, Ba Dinh district, Hanoi

Hero Bar is a great place for young people to unwind on the weekend, thanks to its worldwide DJs playing professional music.

The MC is also charming and witty, and everyone who attends is overjoyed and relaxed.

Hero Bar also has a reasonable price point, with beers starting at 60,000 VND.
