Top choice bar in Hanoi

Nguyen Qui Duc's unofficial clubhouse for the underground art scene's latest incarnation is this dark and quirky colonial bar in the French Quarter. Obligatory red accents (seat covers, wrought-iron grill on the doors), reworkings of art deco furniture and plenty of recycled ironwork feature heavily. It attracts many well-dressed visitors. The highlight of the cool cocktail list is the sweet mojito.
