Labyrinth: Its open late!
A few doors down from 'Little Hanoi', this is the place your parents probably warned you against -:)
Dark and dingy at first glance, this is something of a magnet to travellers and locals (both ex-pat and Vietnamese) looking for a late-night drink .
Most definately seedy, its nevertheless a friendly enough place (apparently the owner had wanted to develop it as a gay bar but too many travellers discovered it!). But having said that, the small room (its little more than that) rarely gets very full, and so a perfect place to sit and talk in the darkest place in Hanoi!
Dress Code: Anything goes
Nice night views
At the very north side of the Hoan Kiem Lake there is a rooftop terrace from where U can have a wonderful view of all the city by night.
It is a local bar, you will see it from the square that is right in the north side of the lake. Enter by the right side of the building, take the elevator and go right to the top.
There I sat to have a delicious papaya shake for less than 1 USD...Related to:

Terrace by the lake
Arund the hoan Kiem Lake you can find many quiet terraces in which to seat and relax in the lazy evenings.
From these you can see the calm waters and the endless activity of the people walking by the shores, exercising, sitting on the benches...Related to:
Pho Bao Khanh Street: Bar Hopping in Hanoi
Pho Bao Khanh is a street crammed full of bars and cafes. At night, locals and expats go here to blow off some steam and have a drink or two.... or three, or four... ;P
The street really doesn't start getting busy until late at night, but if you come during Happy Hour (1pm-8pm) you can find beer for around 10,000 dong.
