Have you ever wondered about the fancy club scene in Saigon? It’s better than you imagined and with these options, you can be like the glamorous locals.
Saigon is one of the fastest developing cities of Vietnam and nothing is more telling of this characteristic than the many skyscrapers around the city. There are also many bars located on the rooftops of these buildings that promise partygoers a great night with a fantastic view. If you are looking for a place to drink and dance, check out this article about the best rooftop/sky bars in Saigon for more information.
Chill Skybar – AB Tower
This is the most popular sky bar in Saigon because of its expansive glowing outdoor bar section offering views to Bitexco, the bustling backpacker area, and the busiest roundabout of Saigon. This 1,000-square meter bar comes with Western-style decoration. There is a walk-in liquor cabinet, which displays more than 300 types of brands, in the sleek dining area. It’s even been home to parties lit up by famous DJs like the sexy DJ KimKat when they visited Vietnam.
Every day, a Vietnamese or international DJ plays music starting at 9:30 PM. There is also a new event every week. Check out their Facebook page for more information.
Besides drinking, you can try their amazing food. The grilled feast and seafood are said to be the best here.
Last but not least, don’t forget to dress up if you decide to go to Chill Skybar as they have a strict dress code. Keep in mind that flip-flops and shorts are not acceptable here. The security has the right to not let you enter the bar if you violate the dress code.
Good news is if you travel around the world with your favorite flip-flops and don’t have any other shoes, you can borrow a pair of proper shoes from the bar.
