Sofitel upgrades historic Hanoi hotel bar

Sofitel’s famous old hotel in Hanoi, the Metropole, has unveiled a revamped bar.

Following a two-month renovation, Le Club bar has been expanded from a seating capacity of 90 people to 120, and a new live-cooking station has been introduced. The bar also features new furnishings and fabrics and has been designed to feel like a “1920s-era speakeasy”.

“Le Club is going to feel very much like a new bar,” said Franck Lafourcade, the Metropole’s general manager. “[It is] a bar where you really want to sit down to a perfectly mixed drink, or where you really want to uncork a special bottle. Like the Metropole itself, coming into Le Club is going to feel a little bit like going back in time.”

Le Club occupies the same space as the venue that hosted the first screening of a movie in Indochina back in 1916.
