Chill Sky Bar Saigon Rooftop Bar

Chill Sky Bar is the original open-air rooftop bar in Saigon where locals and tourists come to enjoy top-shelf cocktails along with some of the best views of the Ho Chi Minh City skyline.

This comprehensive guide to Chill Sky Bar covers everything you need to know about one of the best rooftop bars in Saigon including the dress code, drink prices, menu and much more.

Author’s Note: Is it Saigon or Ho Chi Minh? Saigon was the original name of the city until 1976 when it was officially renamed Ho Chi Minh City following conclusion of the Vietnam War. We spoke with several locals who told us that they still prefer to use Saigon, but either one is fine.

The Ultimate Guide To Chill Sky Bar HCMC

Chill Sky Bar Ho Chi Minh City VietnamChill Sky Bar was the first rooftop bar to open in Vietnam. It didn’t take long for this establishment to gain notoriety within Saigon’s nightlife scene as it quickly became one of the most popular spots in the city.

Nowadays Chill Sky Bar is widely regarded as one of the best rooftop bars in Asia, on par with the likes of Sky Bar Bangkok and Heli Lounge Bar KL.

How To Get There

Rooftop Bar In Ho Chi Minh City

Chill Sky Bar is situated on the 26th floor of the AB Tower in the Ben Thanh District of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. For directions to the rooftop bar from your current location, click here.

How To Get To Chill Sky Bar Saigon

[Address: Tang 26 AB Tower, 76A Le Lai, Ben Thanh, Quan 1, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam]

The AB Tower is located near several noteworthy landmarks in Saigon like the Ben Thanh Market, Quách Thị Trang Park and the War Remnants Museum.

Arriving On Foot

If you are planning to stop in for drinks at Chill Sky Bar after a day of exploring Saigon then you should make Ben Thanh Market your last stop due to it’s close proximity. This local market is one of the more popular tourist attractions in Saigon where you can find handicrafts, textiles, souvenirs and Vietnamese cuisine.

The AB Tower is a short 5 minute walk from the Ben Thanh Market shown in the photo above.

The rooftop bar is also within walking distance of several other popular tourist attractions like the Independence Palace, Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica and War Remnants Museum.

Using Public Transportation (Not Recommended)

The Ho Chi Minh City Metro system is still under construction and will not be completed until 2020 so the only public transportation option at the moment is the bus system. I would not recommend taking the bus as Uber and taxi service is very cheap in Vietnam.

However, if you decide to take the bus then you can get off at the Ben Thanh Market station and walk about 5 minutes on Le Lai street to get to AB Tower.

Taking A Taxi or Uber (Recommended)

Taking a taxi or an Uber can be very cheap in Vietnam – not to mention super fun! For the real experience make sure you order an Uber bike as shown in the photo above.

  8. Mike June 14, 2019 at 10:21 pm

    Nice rooftop bar, with beautiful views. The only downside is that the music is too loud. I feel the DJs are enjoying themselves, not the reason people are accessing this bar. It is to see the views, there is a great cocktail, snacks and chat.

    • Charles-Philippe June 17, 2019 at 6:51 am

      Hi Mike,

      I can’t recall this being a problem for Paul but sorry to hear that it affected your time there.
