Why Mao’s Red Lounge is special ?

Mao's Red Lounge is the comfortable warm sweater of Ha Noi's Bar scene. Nestled in the heart of the old quarter on Ta Hien Street, the bar is an unpretentious, snug and comfy place to lounge, drink and be yourself.

Like a trusty old sweater, it'll keep you warm all night with a late closing time and friendly service. The bar staff here are hard-working but won't hassle you with constant inquiries about whether you'd prefer a Carlsberg beer instead of the cheap Halida you're drinking. If you want to chill out, have a chat, Mao's is the destination. Mao himself, who is sometimes affectionately referred to as ‘the Chairman', is a friendly fixture on Ha Noi's bar scene.


How to get to Mao’s Red Lounge?

Mao's Red Lounge is located directly North of Hoan Kiem Lake on the narrow bar street just past the bia hoi corner. You can walk to the place or just take a taxi to get there.
