Attraction details
Owner description: Hanoi Rock City (HRC) is the capital of Vietnam's very first and foremost independent live music venue. Founded in 2010, the spacious, multi-room venue consists of a huge, relaxing bar garden and a fully stocked live house with a capacity of 350 pax. HRC lies at the heart of Hanoi's live and electronic music scene, both in terms of depth and breadth of acts and events, and in terms of quality of stage, sound and visual set up for live bands. If you are into good, original music or would simply enjoy an evening drink in one of the cities friendliest, most dynamic and most diverse bars, HRC is a must visit on your Hanoi agenda.We hold events every weekend and more low key nights during the week. Please check our website for details, bookings and upcoming events.

“Great Rock 'n' Roll Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

This is a very cool venue. DA who owns the place has set it up as a top venue for music. Downstairs is a huge beer garden type spot and upstairs a soundproofed rock venue fully decked out with Great PA system, drum kit, amps etc.

“Great vibes and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

Open space downstair with the dance floor and stage upstair in a quite spacious room with proper sound proofed system. Many expats living in Vietnam frequent there so you could meet some really interesting people from all over the world. The atmosphere is great and the bar serves anything you ask for pretty much.

“Top class music venue and bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

Hanoi Rock City has been set up very professionally. The guys that run this venue know what they are doing as far as musical knowledge and equipment. The downstairs area is a partly open air, very cool place which holds acoustic musical acts and also DJ's. The upstairs part where the bands play is sound proofed with proper double doors and air lock to keep the sound in. Very clever in a city which doesn't really promote all night partying. The sound system is great and the sound guy knows his stuff. Some great local and expat bands perform here. The bars serve pretty much anything you ask for. They even practice responsible serving of alcohol by offering to store your motor bike overnight and call you a cab! Highly recommended.

“City of culture and tradition:”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

The capital of Vietnam.we spent 3 days there.Very attractive and peaceful city.Hanoi is the city of culture and tradition.So many temples reflecting old culture of Vietnam.
we visit Hanoi in summer but it was amazing for us.So many people like to travel by bicycle. And it was very awesome experience to explore the city.There are so many amazing places to visit like Temple of Literature , Lake Hoan Kiem , Old Quarter , Ba Dinh Square with Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.
Highly recommended for an amazing trip.
