With a choice location in the Old Quarter and near Hoan Kiem Lake, Le Pub is a good spot to meet and chat with other travelers and local expats. The walls are a deep red and are decorated with colorful paintings, seating is at benches or on wrought-iron seats, and blackboards advertise daily specials such as cocktails for less than $2. They serve decent food, but it's the pub atmosphere—cold beers, good music, and sports on TV—that provide the main attraction in the evening.
