Why Chill Skybar is special ?
The first open-air sky bar in Vietnam is tended by an award winning German bartender and is the perfect setting for cocktails. The patio features a centre piece bar, a wonderful area to take in the view below while sipping a cocktail or beer.
Danish Chef Casper Gustafsen, assisted by fellow Dane Sous Chef Camilla Bailey, has created an exciting new menu that is inspired by both French and Nordic cuisines.
Set high on the 26th and 27th floors of a landmark Saigon skyscraper in District 1, Chill is an enviable location for travellers looking to get above the street-level deluge of motorbikes and honking trucks.

Tips for you
Chill deluxe is so cool. It's not on the menu so you need to ask for it :)
One of the most beautiful view of HCMC. That's all it got.
Dont order the 3rd cocktail on the list sucks
spectacular impressively view but quite expensive. Beer -160.000VND, Cocktail - 260.000 ~ 300.000VND. (without 15% VAT & service charge)
One of the best sky bars in Asia. True sky bar and you really are outside on top the building. Prices normal for type of place. Beware they have strict dress code, at first would not allow us in because type of shoes.
First, you're harassed even in the lobby to check where you go, what for, did you book... - hey i'm having a drink afterwork, right ?- then upstairs with multiple nonsense rules and policy such as no stool for men but i'm lucky tonight it's early, they make an exception for me. Seriously ?Then, your order. No outstanding service, very common cocktails, highly expensive. Nothing fancy. When it's time to pay, they ask you the exact amount to the penny i.e.150VND = 0,0071$ -. But as the change over 1000VND, they deny to give you the closest amount such as 900VND (500+200+200) because it would be 50VND = 0,0024$ loss for them. The loss is for the customer. Even if I usually complain about the crap service in VN, never, EVER, I saw it anywhere else in VN. Come on.No need to say, we didn't order a second one. I've been stupid enough to go there once to try, but not twice. They don't care about long terms reputation, they just want to make money as fast as they can. Vietnamese way.Not to mention the parking fees. 15000VND on thursday night , 50% higher than any other fashionable place in D.1.What ? The view ? Pffffff. Not worth. There plenty of these spot in Saigon. Just skip it.
We like sky bars and this was a good one. Great music,atmosphere and views.Sure it is pricey but sky bars are.We skipped dinner and ordered some tapas type food rather than leave.
5th July 2013. We decided to get to this place as we have many recommendations from my local friends. We were a bit surprise to know that we need to reserve a table as they organize live performance every weekend and require dress code. It sounds like those high-end club that we've been Avalon in Singapore, M1NT in Shanghai or Tosca in Hong Kong. No problem, it makes us more exciting to come as Chill is the only one in the city require it. Upon arrival, we enter the red-carpet reception at the lobby. Thanks that we dress up nicely and made our reservation, we passed the waiting crowd like VIPs. At the entrance on the 27th floor, it was a WOW. The endless panoramic skyline was stunning. Then, we walked down the outdoor staircase with spotlight that wrapped attentions like a star coming. We quickly get to the table right next to the glass wall (it is strongly recommend) and near the DJ station. The staff was friendly and quick to wrapped up our order. While we are busy to take so many pictures with the beautiful city skyline backdrop, all the drinks are arrived. I like their music style, very close to international club with Electro House, Mash Up and Top 40. When it close to mid-night, the performance started. Those burlesques girls made us so excited with their sexy moves on the staircase and even on the bar counter. We left around 2am. Found it still early to leave as many people still dancing and drinking.
