The best-known gay bar and one of the longest-running gay venues in Hanoi GC Bar gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, with gay locals, expats and foreigners.

There’s a pool table, some stools and chairs but no dance floor. Located near the Hoan Kiem Lake. The bar is relatively easy to find (although there are two streets sharing the same name).

Walk down Ngo Bao Khanh street, away from the lake. After 50 metres, turn right onto Khanh St. GC Bar is about 50 metres down. There is an illuminated sign above the doors.

venue: bar (酒吧) | features: bar, music (酒吧, 音乐) | customers: mostly gay

  1. Bad experience

    “I was there with a group of friends and the guys decided to run a tab. I decided to pay for my own drinks as I was just having soft drinks. When it was time for me to go the barman insisted that I pay for my drinks. I told him I already have and that I'm going now. He told me I am lying and still owe him money. He was very rude and eventually screamed that I should "f**k off and never come back". This was a horrible experience but I was not going to double pay for overpriced drinks.“

  3. The pool table sucks.

    “They have to get rid of the pool table and put a dance floor, no one wants to watch old people playing pool. It's gay bar not a sports bar.“

      • Pool table

        “It's not only so called old people who play pool. Even in the gay community we have stupid remarks about age. Trust me it's the "old:" guys that keep the gay places going. They have the money and strangely enough, probably more of them.“

  4. alan ramsay, glasgow scotland.

    “Excellent bar, busy most nights, friendly staff, reasonable beer prices (unfortunately no "real ale") , sadly ruined by the overpowering "boom boom" music. Had to give up trying to speak (chat up) anyone as could hear little but base beat and speaker distortion. Unfortunately Asian dj's confuse music quality and volume. alanr“

  8. Ruined by pool table

    “Went on a Saturday night. Was crowded and DJ was playing very loud music - so too loud to talk. But 75% of the floor space is taken up by a huge pool table so there was no space to dance. Too loud to talk but impossible to dance => annoying ! Left after 1 hour“
