“The best of the best bars in Hanoi”
Review of Sunset Bar

Sunset Bar
Ranked #453 of 3,940 Restaurants in Hanoi
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 January 2014

People who don't stay at the Intercontinental Hotel, Westlake, often never hear about the Sunset Bar. Without doubt it is the classiest bar in all of Hanoi. The service is sublime, the drinks well mixed, the range of 'bar food' is delicious and the location unparalleled in the city.

The bar itself is perched on the edge of the lake at the rear of the hotel grounds. It's a lovely walk along the boardwalks to get to the bar and on a pleasant evening the stroll there helps build the ambiance of the experience. Sunset Bar is supremely comfortable, with a range of couches and large seating both undercover (in case of rain) and right on the edge of the lake itself.

They have an extensive cocktail list, a wide range of wines (with regular specials) and numerous other drink options bound to satisfy almost everyone. For me, Sunset Bar is the best of the best bars in Hanoi. It's a place for special occasions to enjoy a classy evening of luxury. It's most definitely not an every day bar, but from time-to-time, it's well worth it.

For travelers staying in different places, do yourself a favour on a balmy evening, grab a taxi to the Intercontinental Westlake and indulge in an evening of refinement and romance. A great way to round out a Hanoi experience.

Dear NewmaninHanoi,

I want to thank you for the feedback that you took the time to provide from your recent stay at InterContinental Hanoi Westlake. Without this feedback we cannot improve the quality of the guest experience at the hotel. I am happy to know that you love our Sunset Bar which is one of the best place to enjoy sunset in Hanoi.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Nice and casual atmosphere, music was at the right volume, tables are set with good distance between them which allow you to enjoy your drink and snacks without disturbance.

Wine and food menu selections are good, we had chicken satay as a starter and beef burger as main course with white house wine and it was a delicious meal.

The only issue is that the staff don't speak a word of english and it is very hard to order what you want without the help of their manager.

We asked for salt and pepper and it took us couple of minutes to explain what we want and when we thought he understood us he went and got us some salt in a small saucer.

Overall it is recommended :)

Dear Arabianman,

Thank you for your feedback from your recent stay with us. As the hotel was built on the West Lake, we create a “resort” life in the city for our guests to enjoy the beautiful and the peaceful of the place.

Our Sunset Bar is a highly recommended place to enjoy a special cocktail while seeing sun set over the lake, really romantic and picturesque.

We hope to welcome you back in near future.

Best regards,

Vu Kim Ngan (Ms.)
