1.2. Where is Beer Street Hanoi?

Beer Street Hanoi, or Ta Hien Street, is one of the busiest and most vibrant streets at night in Hanoi. Ta Hien Street is located in Hang Buom Ward, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi, approximately 250 meters from Sword Lake, and is approximately 266 meters long, connecting from Luong Ngoc Quyen Street to Hang Bac Street, crossing Hang Ngang Street and Hang Dao Street.

Thanks to such a geographical location, Ta Hien Street is like a charming “black pearl” in the heart of the capital, an “international crossroads” that has both historical, tourist, economic value, and spirit for locals and tourists to stop by.

1.3. Beer Street Hanoi opening and closing times

This street is open all day. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, this street always welcomes a huge number of visitors, especially young Vietnamese. Therefore, this is a good opportunity for foreign tourists to exchange and experience the lifestyle of young people.

1.4. The distinct beauty of Beer Street Hanoi

Ta Hien Street is Hanoi’s most popular and busy tourist destination, but it has managed to keep its ancient features and architectural features ahead of time and urban changes.

Ta Hien still has the old houses lined up close together, the small rustic corners, the old walls covered with lime pieces, each electric lamp pole rusted… The street is divided into two blocks, numbered with odd and even numbers, two opposing rows of houses have different architectural styles.

The even row of houses is a typical Vietnamese architectural style: a two-story house with the upper floor set back from the road and the lower floor close to it. A row of retail houses with French architecture: two-story houses with the same sloping tile roof.

It is the unique feature of this architecture that has created a distinct beauty for Ta Hien Street, which is different from other streets.

1.5. Ta Hien Street, a street with two personalities in one day

Quiet day, bustling night

Ta Hien Street is considered the intersection between the nostalgia of Trang An and the modern features of Hanoi today. If you explore this neighborhood from day to night, you will feel two distinct polar opposites. Ta Hien, like many of Hanoi’s 36 streets, is nostalgic, peaceful, and ancient during the day.

At night, Ta Hien seemed to “makeover” when the shops began to light up, tables and chairs were laid out on the street, and people flocked to them like a festival. The nightlife can last until 1-2 a.m. On the weekends, the number of visitors here is increasing, creating a very unique atmosphere in Ha Thanh that does not sleep.
