A bar and lounge merged with a space for all sorts of creative output, it has been put together to offer people a place of refuge, a colourful and handmade creative haven among the trees, right in the middle of busy Hanoi.
It has a large outdoor space for enjoying music and other forms of creative expression, and will host events organised both by Rafiki’s co-owners and other event planners or individuals.
Prices are more than reasonable, with a bottle of Barett craft beer just VND50,000, Platinum Draft at VND60,000 and Tiger beers at VND30,000.
Co-founded by Augustine Musewe, Brandon Williams, Jason Bongers and Quynh Nguyen, it can also open for mornings and on Mondays by request, for workshops and events.
Rafiki’s is at 63 Duong 1, 32 An Duong, Tay Ho, Hanoi and is open Tuesday to Thursday from 3pm until midnight, and from Friday to Sunday from 1pm until 2am. For more information, visit facebook.com/rafikishanoi
