Why Beer Corner is special ?

Hanoi's Beer Corner is something is a traveller institution that's spilled over into nearby Ta Hien St tp create what now may be better described as beer street. Sitting at a street corner in Hanoi old quarter with a beer glass, chatting with your freshly made friends while watching people pass by might be one the most memorable pages in your travel journal.

The good news is that draught beer is a popular refreshment drink in all over Vietnam. The bad news is that it is way too affordable that you may have to restrain yourself from going for a fourth glass (each glass costs you 20-30 cents!). Ta Hien street is one of the hot spots for "bia hoi". And because it is such an enticing gathering place, you will be likely to run into many tourists and local alike, ready to converse over the weather or some latest gossips in town.

Tips for you

  • You should be aware of pickpockets whenever and wherever you are.
    Personal belongings
  • Motorbikes still make their way through the crowds, often at silly speeds, so keep your wits about you.
    What to know
  • It is customary for Vietnamese to have beer with boiled or roasted peanuts. Try it and love it!
  • By far the most popular place with tourists is Bia Hoi Hai Loan, you’ll see it on the corner, and its address is 41 Luong Ngoc Quyen.
  • There is likelihood that street vendors will corner you off to sell postcards, chewing gums and who-knows-what. A determined “no” will do the job if you don’t want to buy anything and get yourself into further trouble.
    Things to do
  • You can do what most people do and instead order a bottle of Tiger or Hanoi beer for 15,000 or 20,000 dong, but it takes some of the fun out of things.

Check out the reviews for 'Bia Hoi Ha Noi' as an attraction in Hanoi, it's pretty famous! Bia Hoi Ha Noi is a corner on the street where there are four local pubs (plastic chairs on the pavement) serving super cheap beer - about 50 cents a glass! It is totally worth a visit, the beers are light, easy to drink and cheap. Not to mention the food - we had pork ribs and morning glory with garlic, then spring rolls... Seriously the best street food we ate throughout all of Vietnam!! The owner showed us how to eat it with the sauces and vegetables. Superb! Super cheap as well, we ate till we were stuffed and had 6-8 beers each with the bill coming to about $15. Incredible! My only main advice would be to bring toilet paper or tissues as well as hand sanitizer, as the bathrooms leave alot to be desired. The location is fab - watching the world go by with lights illuminating passers bys and scooters. Also easy walking distance to most hotels.

Great fun - grab a stool and watch the crazy world go by for a few hrs.. but the 5000vnd beer doesn't taste good. Do yourself a favour and upgrade to the 15000 stuff. Thats still only 0.67USD a bottle!
