Hanoi Social Club

During our Hanoi trip last May, my cousin Queen suggested we check out this place called The Hanoi Social Club.  More than a restaurant, it was a cozy and interesting space where “peaceful souls join together to cloud-gaze, think, and create.”

11bThis is what it looked like the night we were there.  The ground floor was all set up for Couch Surfers Night, where their couch-surfing guests would be reading poetry, singing, or playing music.  They also have performances by traveling musicians most nights.  You can just send them an email at hanoisocialclub@gmail.com if you’d like to visit and perform!

8My cousins and I walked up a narrow staircase to the second floor, where there were two separate dining rooms, plus a small, artist-run shop selling handmade baubles.  There is also a deck on the third floor.

23Hanoi Social Club’s chefs are graduates of hospitality schools for disadvantaged youth, and they have an extensive vegan/vegetarian menu.

I had the walnut burger with polenta fries, and iced Vietnamese coffee. The burger was just all right, but I heard they make a good Tempeh Reuben, and that’s what I plan to order next time.  (The rooms were really dark, so my food photos are all blurry.)

Loved the laid-back, artsy vibe of this place!  I felt so at-home here, and would love to go back.
