Hanoi has a very small gay scene. This is partly because many gay Vietnamese avoid expressing their true identity. We hope that the rapid growth of Hanoi as a tourist destination and the arrival of increasing numbers of LGBT travellers will encourage the development of more gay businesses and the gay community as a whole.

The oldest gay bar in Hanoi and quite possibly the whole of Vietnam. GC Bar is located close the popular Hoan Lien lake. It is relatively easy to find although there are two streets sharing the same name. Walk down the ‘main’ Boa Khanh street away from the lake. After 50 meters, turn right into a narrower ‘Boa Khanh’ Street.
GC is about 50 meters down on the right hand side. There is an illuminated sign above the doors. Tends to be busy at the weekends attracting both locals, expats and a few tourists.
