Overview

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.

If you show up when anything is actually happening there is a 100,000 vnd cover charge. Not for me, but some don't mind. Drinks are over-priced.

Very nice place to have a good night dancing with your friends Obviously the music depends on the night's theme, but it's usually good Alcohol is no that expensive though and they also have very nice exhibition sometimes

An old favorite haunt in Tay Ho, HRC has been an institution in Hanoi for years. Generally filled with expats that live around the area, HRC has different offering each night from open mike nights to international touring artists and DJs. A much better option...More

Unlike most places in Hanoi this one has a perfect acoustic for electronic music. This is a real night club that makes you even forget that you're in Asia.

I only visited Rock City for one drink on a Thursday evening, however I was suitably impressed. Good layout, great sound and the bar prices weren't too considering the quality of the venue. A nice mix of tourists and locals as well.

Went there for an electro night and did not expect it to be so good. The venue, the music quality, the Lightning, the drinks and of course the people. many expats but also locals which was a lovely party mix. Had lots of fun, Go!

I rate this space. Find music happening in Hanoi which isn't happening else where. Punk; techno; hip hop. Well worth a visit!

One of the few most popular places where expats of Hanoi hang out. There is an open mic every WED (very good quality life music) and other events every SAT/SUN. So if you want to party out of Old Quater with locals go to HRC
