1900 – Le Theatre

If you ask some Hanoian where to have a fantastic party in the capital, 1900 Le Theatre Club would be the first name that comes to mind. This club has the best position on Ta Hien party lane. From the outside, this position appears to be very thin. However, once inside the lounge, you will be astounded by the spaciousness and the fancy, sophisticated furniture. Each nook and cranny of the club is a work of art. Details influenced by ancient and modern Hanoi can be easily found, such as old megaphones, the One Pillar Pagoda, and our traditional houses with their distinctive yellow color.
