Depending on peoples income a variety of entertainment and dance clubs can be found in Hanoi from simple Karaoke,  Bia Hoi Hanoi on the street, bars to 5 star hotel Lobby Bar’s.

They seem to come and go, and in the past they sometimes get closed at a moment’s notice by the Police, which means the bar is closed for the night, so just accept that, be respectful, leave and go home or find somewhere else to go.

Some seriously cool places have popped up that cater for the rich young Vietnamese and the foreigner crowd.
