    Relax Bar

    This is a nice, casual place to hang out and grab a beer. It is on Ly Thuong Kiet, south of Hoan Kiem Lake, and near Hoa Lo Prison. Though Lonely Planet claimed this place was a bit sleazy (who trusts LP anyway!?), we found it to be very nice and friendly.

    Ghosts in my phone after being doused w/ bia Tiger

    50/50 split between Vietnamese and expats, this has to be one of the friendliest spots in Hanoi. Absolutely packed. Good place to grab a beer alone or with a few friends.

    Dress Code: Bring a waterproof phone. Last time I went, someone tried to move a table and saturated my jeans...and my phone.

    Relax Bar: Sleazy

    This is a, by no stretch of the imagination, nothing but a watering hole for lonely men to ogle the bar girls and buy drinks for them in exchange for company. Similar to what you might find in some girly bars you would find along the P. Burgos Street in Makati, Philippines or peppered about some parts of Bangkok (Patpong is not what I'm referring to here... we all know that's way beyond a girly bar).

    Dress Code: No dress code it seems.
