    Nightlife or the Lack of It

    by gypsysoul73 Written Jun 29, 2006

    There isn't much to be said about night life in laid-back Hanoi. The few bars that are open cater mostly to expats and the few locals found in cafes and bars are there to watch World Cup football.

    The streets though are filled with young people on motorbikes who seem to endlessly drive around the city until very late at night. Where do they go? Do they just drive in circles? Seeing the motorists that have accumulated at a stop light and then watching them rev up after the light turns green can be quite overwhelming. It's like the attack of the Vespas!

    Labyrinth: Its open late!

    by leffe3 Written Jan 29, 2004

    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

    Ha Noi Ballet: Ve Xem Bieu Dien Nghe Thuat

    by Explor5252 Updated Jun 26, 2004

    I have never been to a ballet before, so this was new to me. There was the typical (see on TV) performances on what I would call European ballet. Then there was a part of the show which was uniquely Vietnamese. It was all great! There were no restriction for use of photographic equipment during the performance, so you sometimes got distracted by the pictures being taken. I took my photos without flash. If it is available when you are there…..go…

    The best seat were under $10.00 (150,000 VND)

    Dress Code: There were no special dress codes, so you seen the very formal to the very casual.

    Quan Nhac Jazz "Jazz Club": Tap your feet away

    by alanlee Written Jan 4, 2005

    This is a extremely cool live jazz bar. They play really nice live jazz and its dark and comfortable setting inside makes its really cool to enjoy the music. If you are good, you can even be invited to play with them. Met the owner Mr Quyen Van Minh, who is a very pleasent and warm man. Not to mention, a great saxaphonist

    Dress Code: No strict dress code. However, it may get a bit warm inside, be prepared with wearing something light. I do find the place a bit stuffy, but I guess thats the atmosphere of most jazz bars.

    Live Jazz...

    Nice bar close to the Hoan Kiem lake. Young better off locals hang out there, more fashionable than some other places.
