Decided to see what the fuss was about and made my way over to the bamboo bar for an early evening drink. Just .. wow. The decor is stunning and the drinks are fantastic. Like other reviewers had before me, I got the "Graham Greene" and what a great choice it was. If you like lychee martinis, do yourself a... More

We stayed three nights at the metropole hotel and went to its Bamboo bar for some time each evening. Nice cocktails, wine, beer and snacks and you can also order food from the neighbouring bar menu too. We had the spring rolls and dim sum as a perfect snack one evening with our drinks. It's nice to sit on the... More

We were hoping for a nice time in the second floor of the bar, but unfortunately, the music was playing too loud for comfort and the cigarette smoke all went up and ruined our time.

This bar in the beautiful Metropole hotel offers great cocktails but if you like gin, the Bamboo Nation is just amazing, over the top. Service is excellent and the settings very quite and nice. A place to relax and enjoy

While recently (January, 2017) staying at the Metropole Hotel, we thoroughly enjoyed a late night drink at the Bamboo Bar. The experience here is like stepping into a 1940s movie, the atmosphere is so wonderfully exotic. The drinks menu is fantastic and wonderfully appropriate. Our late evening here wondrously augmented our stay here. We wish to come back.

Arrived back at the Metropole after a long drive from Sapa, and chose to have a casual meal by the pool. The Bamboo Bar is popular with locals and tourists alike. The service is good, and the food and drinks were excellent. This is a good casual dining option in downtown Hanoi.

Bamboo Bar is perfect for al fresco dining whilst staying at the Metropole Hotel in Hanoi, one of the coolest hotels in Asia. Of course, both hotel and bar are expensive, but in this case, the cost is justified by the outstanding service and quality of both food and drinks. Very good selection of cocktails and they can pretty much... More

The photos do not do the place justice. It is a place of tranquility in the middle of the city. Beautiful pool side tables with hotel building in the background. Instantly one of my favourite hotel bars.
