Read & relax

As its name suggests, books are the design theme, with large bookshelves in a space resembling a living room. There are hundreds of books in both Vietnamese and English, and the nice architecture of the old French house makes it an ideal reading corner for book lovers, where they can choose to sit next to the bookshelf or on a couch next to a window or even lie down on the wooden floor of the loft. The loft also has a nice view onto the first floor, making it ideal when there are live music performances, such as Open Mic on Tuesday, Love Songs on Wednesday, with songs from famous Vietnamese composers and musicians like Trinh Cong Son, Pham Duy, and Ngo Thuy Mien, and Piano Night on Friday and Saturday. Coffee and tea are the main menu items, such as Vietnamese coffee, espresso, cappuccino, latte, Earl Grey, herbal tea and organic tea. Prices start from VND38,000.
