Established in September 2018, speakeasy-themed bar Jigger Cocktail & Wine Bar has become one of Hanoi’s more popular destinations for well-priced cocktails and vibrant music scene. Located along a side street in central Hanoi amid non-descript local shops and eateries, Jigger Cocktail & Wine Bar occupies a twin-level space that accommodates the main bar at street level with a relaxed lounge-style setting on the upper level. Showcasing modern mixology techniques, the Jigger bartenders use high-quality spirits and fresh local ingredients to craft both signature cocktail creations and their re-interpretations of classics.
Signature cocktails at Jigger follow a “murder story” theme – with a list of 20 unique cocktails categorized under “characters” such as suspects, victim, police etc.. Stand-outs include the Unexpected Encounter – an intriguing mix that includes sous-vide Earl Grey infused gin, orange bitters, and earl grey & elderflower jelly. Additionally, a list of “Modern Classics” feature twists on classic cocktails – the Tangerine Negroni is a combination of sous-vide tangerine infused gin, Martini Rosso and Campari; while the Wine-Fashioned has Evan Williams Extra Aged Whiskey mixed with a wine reduction, Angostura Bitters and Chocolate Bitters.
