Are you a wine lover and would never say ‘no’ to a good glass of wine? Or are you in for a wine bar hopping adventure in the ancient quarter of Hanoi?
If you have a great passion for drinking wine or classic cocktails in a quaint bar with great music allowing you to sit back and fully indulge, you can see the list of three bars below. All three bars are not too far from one another, so if you feel as though you should not be missing any of the three, you could easily cover all three in one night!
Polite & Co.
Polite & Co. bar is a 1920s gentlemen’s club inspired pub with refined details to be found in every corner along with finely dressed up staff to complete the ambience. It is a popular place for both locals and expats to hang out with friends and fill a lovely evening together over a glass of wine or cocktail. This bar is the one place I often go with friends on a weekend and I love the festive vibe here.
Address: 5b Ngõ Bảo Khánh, Hàng Trống, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội
Monday – Thursday 16:00 – 00:00
Friday – Saturday 16:00 – 02:00
Sunday 16:00 – 01:00
Tannin Wine Bar
I found this place online when I was searching for a new wine place in the Old Quarter to explore and recently went to check it out. It is a small bar with limited seats (maybe up to 30) but there’s a good range of wines by the glass and bottle as well as cocktails and nibbles. It is tucked away at the end of Hang Vai street and is a great place to go for a nice long chat with a friend.
Address: 46 Hàng Vải, Hàng Bồ, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội
Opening Hours: Everyday 14:00 – 00:00
This very newbie in town opened in early 2019 is also a 1920s inspired bar. “Bee’Znees 1920s Speakeasy Bar offers a vintage vibe of the good’ol America.” And yes, there’s the ‘Speakeasy’ bookshelf through which you enter to reach to upstairs where cosy and secluded bar is hidden away. The street is located next to railway and you can enjoy the view over the quiet street and railway from the balcony in complete seclusion. They have live music some nights and it could be a perfect place for a relaxing wine session with your friends and loved ones.
Address: 163 Phùng Hưng, Cửa Đông, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội
Opening Hours: Everyday 19:00 – 00:00
