21 GAM

alt

Humans are capable of expressing up to 21 emotions. However, at every age, with any set of emotions, our souls deserve to be taken care of and that’s what 21 GAM was born to do.

Everything at 21 GAM is painted with the color of time. Located in a hundred-year-old antique building, 21 GAM owns “the longest bar in Hanoi” that is crafted out of old wooden ship planks and hand-made terrazzo. Taking inspiration from the darkness of night, 21 GAM atmosphere is shaded with an amber hue from a giant egg-shaped moon on the ceiling

The wine menu is truly the place for a soul to express its deepest emotions. This year, the menu theme is centered around the idea of love. “Lovesick” has a wonderful cherry and cocoa flavor. “Wander off” is a drink with the bitter scent of wine and the creamy texture of mascarpone. Or, you can spice it up with a coffee-aroma “Spellbound” cocktail, made with the sweet taste of banana, Demerara sugar syrup, and the “nutty-ness” of nutmeg.

Bee'Znees

alt

Walking through a door disguised as a bookshelf, you arrive at Bee'Znees — a cozy place that resembles a speakeasy bar circa 1920, with disco balls and red drapes all over. The main feature of Bee'Znees is surely the world map printed onto the roof. With light illuminating from the bar, the whole atmosphere is filled with a retro dark gold tint.

Bee’Znees menu has various cocktails based on gin, whisky, vodka, rum, and tequila. One of the drinks that you shouldn’t pass on is “Bees Knees” made out of gin, honey, and lemon. Or, “FWB” (Friend With the Beach) a vodka drink that combines banana liquor, pineapple juice, orange, and egg white.

Coming to Bee’Znees is coming to a place that is not crowded. Bartenders will be the ones directly advising and making your drink, ensuring that every single drink that is on your hand is a perfect match for you. Jazz is the main vibe of the place, and you can always listen to live music here every week.

Nê Cocktail Bar

Coming to Nê Cocktail Bar is coming to a diverse and money-worthy wine tasting experience due to the bar's attention to drinking choice. Nê Cocktail Bar specializes in Vietnamese-flavored drinks made from Vietnamese signature ingredients. In fact, this is the birthplace of Phở Cocktail.

The small and cozy space of the bar brings with it a comforting vibe. The bar usually has live Jazz from 9 pm every Tuesday night.

If you don’t want to try Phở Cocktail, you can choose a “Trà Đạo” with Bourbon, Thái Nguyên tea or “ToFu” with Vodka and soy milk.

Nê Boongke

alt

If Nê Cocktail Bar and Nê Boongke are siblings, Nê Boongke is surely the younger one because of its small wooden vintage look that resembles a bunker (the name Boongke is a way of saying bunker in Vietnamese).

Nê Boongke's menu doesn’t really have much difference from its sibling. You can experiment with “The Fairytale Village” with Singleton 12, Talisker, and honey. Or maybe try a “Hurri-cane” with Tanqueray Gin as the main liquor.

Address: 12 Cửa Đông, Hoàn Kiếm District, Hà Nội

The Alchemist - Cocktail Bar

alt

Just as mystical as its name, The Alchemist is designed with a slanted gothic style, high ceilings, and old European lighting. The bar is also decorated everywhere with quite curious items like the periodic tables or Illuminati images.

Some “light” signature cocktails for the newcomers and the ladies to try are “Pearl of The Orient” and “Skype Patron”. If you want to have a wild night, you can take a sip of “The Flying Dutch Man”, “The Protector” and “Queen of Hebrides”.

The Black Sheep pops out on Tống Duy Tân Street with its signature red curtains. This design makes the simple step into the bar door feel like a step out onto a musical stage. Every Thursday, The Black Sheep will have a Single Night — where the singles can get to know each other through minigames and challenges.

The Terminal - Central cocktail bar

alt

With the attention to the smallest detail, The Terminal resembles a very lively recreation of a subway station in downtown New York. The round bar is designed with dividers, just like a ticket stand.

Coming to The Terminal, you are given a “train pass”, with some inspirational quotes when you order a drink. If you are a party animal, this is the right place for you. The Terminal has a DJ playing music every day of the week, mainly Hip-hop and R&B.

The menu here is also New York-themed, with drinks like New York Sour and New York Old Fashioned.
