Top of Hanoi

A rooftop bar worth trying, with the highest view cafe in the city, Top of Hanoi lies on the 67th floor of Lotte Hotel on Lieu Giai Street – a very familiar area for expats as well as locals. For first timer, you need to take Lotte Hotel’s elevator to 65th floor, then switch to another elevator to reach 67th floor.

Top of Hanoi has both luxurious, classy indoor and outdoor space – a true ideal place to escape the world and enjoy Hanoi’s beauty from above.

Given the bar’s location, the price will hurt your wallet for sure. Drinks here cost 150-200k each, 3 times higher than other places. The service is worth it though.

Skyline Hanoi

Lying in the heart of Old Quarter but Skyline is not noisy at all.

However, the price seems a bit pricey compared to other random places.
