I highly recommend this lounge if you pass by.The staff are really efficient and friendly. This is the place to be after work if you need a good glass of wine or a special cocktail made by Josh let him surprise you...Mr. Jonas the Manager is really friendly and professional. Always a pleasure to be back.

“Unique design & great wines”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

The space was designed in very unique way with red bricks for decoration which is certainly every Hanoi. Beautiful West lake view is a big plus and absolutely amazing wines choices. I used to not very into wines but their offers has made me change my mind. I went there once with friends and never forget the experience.

“Place not to miss”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

I have been here for business meeting in the evening and to enjoy nightlife with friends. Love the cozy atmosphere, caring staff, unique decor, selection of great wines and cocktails, nice view and music. It's definitely one of the best bar not to miss in town.

“Good wines and good view”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Excellent wine bar, with the most extensive wine list in Hanoi, knowledgeable staff with good english level. Go there after work to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunset on the Westlake while sharing some tapas with your friends or meet some new ones ...

“Nice view in Tay Ho”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

I love to stay in 3rd floor for some cocktails. 88 Lounge makes no great cocktail. One day I asked the bartender: I am tired and please give me some drink make me feel better. He made me very nice Passion fruit Capirinha. I was so happy. Last month I got offer a bottle of Champagne when I celebrated my birthday there. Feel cool. Like that place a lot.

Dear Hanh,
Thank you for your review.
Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday our head bartender works the bar. So do not hesitate to ask him to put together something especially for you.
At the moment we run cocktail specials every weekend.
Happy to hear that you let us take care of you for your birthday.
Hope to see you soon.
Sincerely,
