BirdCage is probably one of the most unusual late-night spots in Hanoi. In order to get there you have to turn into a small dirt road off Au Co, and drive down a field. You’ll all of a sudden see the lights and hear the music. There is a curtain of vines that you walk through before entering the bar, that with its off-the-beaten-path location, really makes it feel like you’ve discovered a hidden gem.

Sat on the third floor of the Press Club Building, it feels a bit strange to look out of the window and see the red and green roofs of Hanoi staring back. Don’t worry, you haven’t been somehow transported into a bygone era, though the soft jazz piano and the red wine in your hand might make you feel like it.

Tadioto

The best bars in any town are defined by character. Tadioto has character to get your creative cogs turning. Situated just east of Hoan Kiem Lake, it’s the perfect setting for a small group to share ideas or to catch up with old friends over a glass of whisky.
