Description: Situated above the historic home of many famous journalists and writers, on the third floor of the "Press-Club" building, you can find one of the most spectacular French restaurants and its trendy lounge, a real "must go” destination in the heart of the old district of Hanoi. Open all day to anyone and overlooking the famous Metropole Hotel, eating and drinking are taken to an exciting new level. Here, in the splendid surroundings of old colonial flair, you can experience at “La Table du Chef", a unique 2 Michelin-star menu from Alain Dutournier (Paris) or enjoy at "La Plume Lounge” a choice of traditional Vietnamese dishes and the best cocktails in town from our world championship finalist mixologist, Mr Pham Tien Tiep.

“The nicest staff and the yummiest food!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

The Press Club is a fantastic venue for drinks and an incredible meal. The best burger and the best cocktail I have ever had was enjoyed here. The staff are so friendly and will accommodate to any of your needs. I don't know why this venue is not in the top 10!

“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Our first night in Vietnam will be remembered for along time, we were lucky enough to this have this resturant as part of a package deal that we had purchased before arriving. The meal was fantastic and the staff very friendly and spoke very good English. Because of the package I can not comment on value for money, because we didn't see a bill.

“Awesome atmosphere and menu”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Service was slightly slow, but the drinks and food were incredible. Went for a Friday happy-hour promotion and had a blast, live jazz and then a dancefloor.

“Everything we had hoped for ...”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

The experiences of Hanoi are special. Noise, bustle, fine local fare, history, heat/humidity, and ingenious & resilient people.
There are evenings after a few days however when you seek a 'breather' from it all to recharge your batteries.
Quiet, calm, prestigious (without pretension), fine western food, good international wine list, professional staff and refined Jazz.
If this appeals ... cross the road from the Metropole and relax at Press Club

“Oasis in a busy city”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Just across the road from the Sofitel Metropole this is a fabulous club for food & drinks. Happy hour from 5pm-7pm inside or on the roof top bar.
Food specials & range from pizza to 3 course meals. French wine, excellent cocktails or beer. The staff were fantastic. Cecilia from France, Vu, Tru, Luong & Dinh were the staff we met & they treated us so well that we returned 3 times during our stay for either lunch or dinner.
