When separating good bars from exceptional ones, what matters most? Decor? Of course. Atmosphere? Obviously. Cocktails? Goes without saying. Tadioto ticks all those boxes and more. It sits within a tranquil neighbourhood a stone’s throw from the Opera House but a world away from the bustle of the Old Quarter. The interior reflects Vietnamese-American owner Nguyen Qui Duc’s interests, from journalism to writing to art and wine. In the dimly lit room, the people, the drinks and the inviting vibe really make a night out in Hanoi, especially during event nights.
