Love the ambience and the jazzy live band. Fantasic cocktail presentation and drinks. Not too far away from near by attractions. Band starts at about 9pm.

Word of advice - don't go here. The service is arrogant as hell, and you gotta wait a good 40 minutes for a drink, IF you are even allowed inside. There are Plenty of other good cocktail bars in Hanoi, no need to waste time...More

Great selection on whiskey and cocktails, very reasonable prices (specially during happy hours) and great ambience. The finger food menu is not too elaborate, so a great place for drinking, but not for food!!
