What is Standing Bar?

Standing Bar is Hanoi’s go-to location for craft beer lovers! Built upon the Japanese concept of Tachinomiya (quite literally standing-drinking-place) Standing Bar is the perfect destination for an after-work drink and bites with colleagues, a few quality ales and tapas before a night out on the town with friends, or perhaps a late night one-for-the-road and midnight snack.

Craft Beers & Ciders

Boasting an impressive tap room featuring 19 taps, Standing Bar serves up brews from a host of Vietnamese craft beer brands across the length of the country, in the process gaining a deserved reputation as a place where almost any beer brewed in Vietnam can be tasted.

Tapas & Food

Eating and drinking at Standing Bar naturally go hand-in-hand. To complement the drinks on offer Standing Bar serves up a rotating tapas menu of nibbles and small plates, designed to both match and contrast with the beers on offer. Servings are small to enable you to enjoy a variety of flavours whilst plotting your route across our beer map.

Standing Bar is located at #170 Trấn Vũ Street in Trúc Bạch Ward of Hanoi’s Ba Đình District.
The house lies on the very edge of Trúc Bạch lake and faces west with
the terrace upstairs offering engaging views for sunset over Trúc Bạch and West Lakes.

Events & Parties

Procuring a venue pre-equipped with a natural stage seemed like destiny as we toyed with the idea of hosting live events at Standing Bar. As such it has developed as a cultural events venue, playing host to a series of touring international live bands and we also some of the leading players on the international stand-up comedy circuit.

“NOT TO BE MISSED” - The Guardian
★★★★ “a splendid comedy beast” - The Scotsman
★★★★ “this is astute, amoral comedy for the morbidly-inclined” - The Age
★★★★ “a triumph” - Herald Sun
When The Guardian described Australian comic, John Robertson, as a stand-up “not to be missed,” they weren’t kidding. His unconventional, hysterical stage presence and style has been wooing comedy clubs around the world for a number of years.

Now this maverick comedian is coming to Vietnam, and will be bringing with him his award-winning, one-man show, The Dark Room, a show that on YouTube has garnered over 500,000 hits.

First created in 2012, with the use of projector screens Robertson transforms himself into a live video game. He describes the experience in a recent article in Vice Magazine.

“It’s a multiplayer text adventure starring a floating head that wants to destroy you. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure that breaks your brain. Options are projected onto a screen, and the floating head is me, holding a light and screaming abuse into your dumb, little face.”

The idea is for players aka the audience to try and escape, but John stops them “through a combination of logic and the kind of insults my high school PE teacher used to mistake for encouragement.”

So for a night of interactive, stand-up comedy with a twist, get yourself down to Standing Bar on Thursday, Sep. 28. This is dark, surreal and very, very funny. Support comes from Dan Tackage, Kapil Patwardhan, Sean Hynek, Nikki Nguyễn, and Host for the night - Erick Garcia!

Advance tickets available from 14 September at the venue Standing Bar or online via TicketBox*. Advance tickets are VND200K, tickets on the door cost 250K. All tickets include a complimentary glass of Pasteur Street's Jasmine IPA.
