MK Rooftop Bar

This simple yet stylish rooftop bar is located on top of the MK Premier Boutique Hotel in the Hanoi Old Quarter. This terrace has a relaxing atmosphere which is a surprising feat as it’s located above the bustling old quarter. You can enjoy some food and drinks while watching the sunset, or come at night to watch the streets fill with locals and tourists hunting for street food, shopping, or grabbing drinks with friends.

Average drink prices:

Beer: 65-100,000 VND

Cocktails: 130-150,000 VND

Top of Hanoi

If you’re looking for the tallest rooftop in Hanoi, then look no further then the Top of Hanoi at Lotte Hotel. Located on the 65th floor, you are guaranteed to feel like you’ve got your heads in the clouds.

Coming here may have to be a game time decision. Why? Well, Hanoi is infamous for having cloudy skies, which can make it quite difficult to see those panoramic views of Hanoi. It’s definitely worth to come and check this place out. You can find drinks for under 200,000 VND. Also, the rooftop is part bar, part full-service restaurant so you can really take your time and enjoy the view.
