A place of gilded lakes, ancient temples and glorious architecture, Hanoi is not short on things to look at. But few places in Vietnam’s capital supply quite as much visual manna as Twilight Sky Bar.
Located on the rooftop of the newly-opened La Siesta Central Hotel in Hanoi’s historic Old Quarter, the elevated drinking spot has 270-degree outlook over the city. Best of all (and a rarity in Hanoi) it has completely unobstructed views of Hoan Kiem Lake, the central body of water regarded by many as the defining feature of the city. The venue is not only notable for its views. Handcrafted signature cocktails and fine wines define the drinks list while mellow DJ beats enhance the laid-back atmosphere.
