Vietnam 20 Best Bars


Welcome to The Bureau Asia's Vietnam 20 Best Bars of 2020!

The idea of instituting these awards has come about for a couple of reasons.

Throughout the year in Vietnam, there are already a number of brand-organised bartender competitions that award individual bartenders cash prizes and entry into global competitions if they win.

But that's just it.

Those awards are brand-driven and bartender-centric, with the competitions often held behind closed doors, not open to the public.

Our awards, however, are for everyone – the bars and the people who run them and especially, you, the loyal customer who enjoys drinking at them.

That's why we have two awards.

Vietnam 20 Best Bars

Between now and the end of the year, The Bureau Asia team and its posse of "secret Bureau agents" will judiciously scour the nightlife of Vietnam's major cities (including one island!) – Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang-Hoi An, Nha Trang, Da Lat & Phu Quoc – sipping drinks, feeling vibes and enjoying service in order to determine which bars will be inducted into The Bureau Asia's Vietnam 20 Best Bars of 2020 list.

The top 20 will  be announced in December and will be posted HERE for 12 months.

The bar that comes in ranked at number one will not only have massive bragging rights for all of 2021, but they will also win some valuable promotion credits with us! 

More on that in our FAQ PAGE

NOTE: If bar owners/ managers believe their bar has what it takes to make the list, by all means let us know by email at so it's on our radar and we can make plans to go and check it out. 

Please do this by Saturday October 31, 2020.

People's Choice Award 

Anyone (yes, anyone, at least with a Google account) can vote for their favourite bar in this award.

But you only get to vote once for one bar, so you need to make it count! 

Google will require voters to log in to their accounts for verification and as a way to ensure they only vote once (unless they have multiple accounts).

Don't worry, voting is entirely anonymous and The Bureau Asia has no way of collecting any personal information.
