Le Club at Metropole Hotel

The Metropole Hotel in Hanoi has been around since 1901 and is arguably one of the finest (and oldest) buildings in Hanoi. It houses designer brands such as Bally, Cartier, Chopard, Louis Vuitton, Mont Blanc, Salvatore Ferragamo, Sergio Rossi and Hermes. I might be wrong, but the hotel might just be the ONLY shopping mall in the whole of Hanoi. Anyway, I digress …

After an entire day’s trek around the city, we decided to stop by the Metropole for some drinks and we blindly ended up at Le Club, which is a bar / lounge / restaurant with seats indoor and poolside to choose from. Needless to say, we choose the latter (pictured)

I was there last week (Jan 5th to 9th) and so the weather was relatively chilly (I would say around 12-15 degree celsius, a bit like California weather), but they had outdoor (patio) heaters so that kept us warm. The environment was also really serene; the hotel literally separated us from all the honking and bustling-by of the motorcycles in the city.

Anyway, here are pictures of 2 of the drinks we had:

This had Grey Goose Vodka, Raspberry & Blue Curacao … this was quite strong …
