Situated above Vy’s Market Restaurant, The Port’s concept is to show how Hoi An’s cuisine was influenced by foreign trade as it became a major hub on the Spice Route in the 17thand 18th centuries. Guests are invited to see dishes being prepared at the colourful food counters situated around the main dining area. The counters are decorated in the style of a bygone era when Hoi An (or Faifo as it was known) was the biggest trading port in South-East Asia. At its height, Hoi An was home to traders from all over the globe and they brought with them culinary culture which gradually influenced the local food. The food counters reflect the main trading nations who were present during this time. France, Portuguese, Holland, Japan, and China. Situated on the same floor, The Monsoon Bar & Lounge offers a rest stop to sit and unwind while enjoying a drink or afternoon tea. Every evening with live soothing music with overlooking the colourful night market, the bar boasts extensive selection of wines, spirits, cocktails and is the ideal place to enjoy the ambience of The Port - whether waiting for a seat at the restaurant or just having a lazy afternoon cocktail or two. The Port is also home to a merchandise store and well being boutique.
