It's a small bar with good music. The street itself is packed with bars where locals and tourist converge. It's a good place to drink and people watch.. Happy hour (buy 1 get 1 free) from 6-8pm at Fat Cat is good value for money - proper cocktails 🍸🍹, cold beers, and very tasty fresh spring rolls 😋

Fat cat was my first bar experience in Hanoi in 2012. There were only few bars in the whole city. I celebrated Christmas there with my friend (we also have name day on Christmas). There were only few people except us. Woman and bartender behind the bar, two English teachers from the local university and an ex-american senator. We had... More
