The 20th century French villa has been turned into an elegant and tranquil living room where guests can read or work among photos, paintings, sculptures and other art installations from well-known or emerging Vietnamese visual artists. It is also a venue for art shows, such as exhibitions, a book introduction, a film screening, or music or dance performances from local artists, social activists, and international cultural institutions. There is also a small art shop offering little works of art from leading Vietnamese artists. Manzi also targets promoting contemporary arts, building new audiences, inspiring critical thinking, and nurturing a culture of debate. Highlights from the drinks menu include a refreshing pineapple and mint juice, fresh fruit with yogurt, and distinct and flavoursome Vietnamese coffee. It also serves a delicious bò sốt vang, the Vietnamese answer to European beef stew. Prices average VND45,000.
