We were influenced by pre-WWII Hanoi, when French Indochina was at it’s height of style and optimism.

We find delight in mentioning nothing in the palette is typical to the Vietnamese culture. We have designed in features reminiscent of a simple early 20th century colonial time. Classic millwork details like a Zinc bar and fruitwood tambour columns add to the classicism. The light fixtures were all handmade or found and of the era, while the mirrored bar, found in most French Bistros of that time casts a soft glow over the meticulously hand painted decorative walls.
