story

Press-Club, one of the most distinguished business and culinary addresses in Vietnam, was founded in the late 90’s as Hanoi’s premier Meeting and fine-dining venue, a place where dignitaries, entrepreneurs, businessmen and expatriates could interact and dine in a

comfortable, elegant setting. Set above the famous Journalist Association, home to writers and journalists since the war, the place is intended as a tribute to the finest creations by the gesture of the hands, whether it be for writing words, lacquering wood, painting art, vinifying wine or cooking dishes. The Press-Club welcomes any guest all day every day from breakfast to late evening drinks.
