I don't really know what to say about Phuc Tan.

I don't really like the place but however, when I go there with my friends, we always have a good time.

The drinks are not overpriced.

Be careful in the summer and if you wear flip-flops, there is often broken glass on the floor.

If you are a woman, also be careful of angry dancing guys, thinking they owe you. I saw a lot of my friends being harrassed by some guys, and we actually had to stood up as a group to make the guy go away. So maybe don't go there alone.

The bathroom is just disgusting. The door doesn't close, and it's smelly.

I don't really get the parking area, sometimes you have to pay, sometimes you don't have to...

So, 2 stars for the nice memories I have but that's it.

Dirty dirty dirty nothing else to say ahh and about service i don t know if they only know what this word mean or exist. To avoid but you are a backpacker looking for noisy music and cheap drinks.

i always have an awesome time at phuc tan.

ocassionally they have really fun parties here, but even if there are no events going on, you can't go wrong by going here on the weekend if you're looking to party.

it's usually a good mix of foreigners and locals.

all the other comments about cleanliness, etc are true. the bathrooms are disgusting but there are several trees conveniently located near the back door.

This place is a hole!

Unfortunately the choices for entertainment after 2am in Hanoi are severely limited, to the point where you have this cesspit or a gay bar (Solace).

As mentioned toilets are disgusting and would be rated as 4th World (if there were such a thing), so pray that you don't need to go to the bathroom whilst you are here.

Reasonable mix of locals/expats and, unfortunately, backpackers (hey, I guess they gotta party somewhere too).

Alcohol is cheap, although the spirits are all bootleg/fake and be prepared for a nasty hangover if you decide to imbibe. Stick to beer.

Also be prepared for everyone to be sh*tfaced, especially the backpackers, who will have no hesitation (or comprehension perhaps) to dance all in your face and spill your cheap drinks without so much as an apology. Fights have ensued for such behavior, with the staff not really paying much attention, or joining in themselves to put a few sneaky kicks in.

Vietnamese culture being what it is, any girl that stays out later than midnight is not considered a "good girl" which is taken advantage of by the male Western expats, who see PTB as a rich late night hunting ground.

Definitely don't wear your best shoes and clothes here, as they will get covered in crap from the floor, spilt drinks and the sweaty Tay Ba Lo rubbing against you and stepping on your shiny pumps.

As Ted Mosby says on How I Met Your Mother "Nothing good happens after 2am"....never a truer word spoken about Hanoi!

A bit of a dive. Nice place if you want to get f*cked up and remember nothing, but I wouldn't take my gran here. In fact the only thing i can ever remember clearly about this place is the kebabs they sell out the back
