I recently took a business relation for drinks here. They have a nice in-door and outdoor place for drinks. In addition, they have a very good restaurant. The service is great. A classy place if you want to escape the tourists.

Situated above the historic home of many famous journalists and writers, on the third floor of the "Press-Club" building, you can find one of the most spectacular French restaurants and its trendy lounge, a real "must go” destination in the heart of the old district of Hanoi. Open all day to anyone and overlooking the famous Metropole Hotel, eating and drinking are taken to an exciting new level. Here, in the splendid surroundings of old colonial flair, you can experience at “La Table du Chef", a unique 2 Michelin-star menu from Alain Dutournier (Paris) or enjoy at "La Plume Lounge” a choice of traditional Vietnamese dishes and the best cocktails in town from our world championship finalist mixologist, Mr Pham Tien Tiep.
