Hanoi Press Club, one of the most distinguished business and culinary addresses in Vietnam, the Hanoi Press Club was founded in 1997 by a group of French investors led by Eric Merlin and the Vietnamese Journalist Association. Merlin envisioned the Press Club as Hanoi’s premier meeting and fine-dining venue, a timeless face in the capital where dignitaries, entrepreneurs, businessmen and expatriates could interact and dine in a comfortable, elegant setting.
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
