Hanoi’s best-known gay bar and one of Vietnam’s longest-running gay venues. GC gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, with gay locals, expats and foreigners.

The newly renovated bar has a pool table, some stools and chairs. Located near the Hoan Kiem Lake. Easy to find (Note: two streets share he same name).

From the lake, walk down Ngo Bao Khanh Street (away from the lake) and turn right at Khanh Street. GC Bar is about 50 metres down. There is an illuminated sign above the doors.

  1. I go there to Promote my Sunday Gay Event

  2. Poor. Don't go. They are not gay at all.

    “There are many females, and the shopkeeper doesn't care for the customers. They all talk and laugh among themselves. If you went alone, you would be ignored and end up watching the television. They are advertising themselves as a "gay bar", but they are not gay at all.“

  3. Boring

    “If your looking for a good gay atmosphere bar, give this place a miss. Staff to busy to talk to themselves, rather than serve and look after their customers. Boxing on the TV (WTF). I was early so only 6 people in the bar and took me about 10 minutes to get a drink. Plenty of other great bars to go to and interact with locals.“

  4. Great location, great value, friendly

    “My friend and I were here in Feb 2019 on Saturday and Sunday night. Was very busy and we found it to be friendly, good drinks at average prices, mostly gay crowd.“

  5. Revolting and Disgusting

  6. Best gay Bar in Hanoi

    “Was there in November 2017... Yes u can smoke there and we are not used to it anymore, but we adapted us to this bar. They can also give u good suggestions where to go afterwords... thanks boys, it was a good experience“

  7. This place stinks (literally)

    “A few chain smokers stink up the place. Be prepared to wash your clothes after spending a night here. Good music, reasonable prices, and efficient bar staff. Let down by an unpleasant atmosphere of smoke. Needs to enter the 21st century.“

  8. For a gay bar... It's not gay at all

    “The place is off Hoan Kiem lake so location is a plus. But outside of that, there is nothing else I liked.

    I would never consider this a gay bar AT ALL.“

  9. 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.“

  11. 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.“

    Roger on 27-Jun-2016 | Reply Problem with this review?

  12. Haha

    “Agreed. Found old people at the pool table. Nothing has changed.“

    • Boring boring boring

      “One of the most boring bar in the world...One review on internet said straight acting, that's because everyone was straight there.“

  13. 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.“

  14. 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“

  17. Only Saturday

    “Good music, cheap drinks, nice guys, close too early /midnight/, busy just on Saturday, weekday maybe 10 customer in bars“

  18. 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“
