Chill Skybar

So, a friend introduced Chill Skybar as one of the best in HCMC. Apparently, it's one of the most stylist and beautiful bar in HCMC. So let's check it out.

We decided to pay a visit during Happy Hour - I made the initiative to make a reservation and all prior to our trip, which turns out that it is not necessary, but recommended. 

The place was only half full, so no issues with arriving without a reservation actually. But you need to make sure you're dressed for it - no slippers or flip flops. But fret not, if you really turn up in flops they have shoes for you to wear. How nice of them - just one problem, it's not a pretty pair so don't complain!

This bar isn't the best for sunset - it has a great city view, but sunset is on the other side of the city with less attractive buildings.

Don't wear a mini skirt unless you want it to be blown straight to your face! The wind is so strong at the outdoor bar.

Cocktails for happy hour is pretty reasonable - VND150k / USD6.70 per cocktail but don't expect it to be superb. Everything's expensive at any skybar.

For non-happy hour, these cocktails are from VND250k of what we call USD11 for very normal cocktail. Their cocktails are worth only for what they charge during happy hour.

Nevertheless, the presentation is very attractive. The cocktails are not strong, very mild and subtle you can walk straight even after 4-5 glasses or so.

The city view.

I think it's nice to have a drink or two for happy hour if you're visiting  Ho Chi Minh City. It's advisable to be here right at 5.30pm as the crowd comes in only after half 6; better for photos too!

P/S: Don't order water. They refused to serve hot water - someone had to take meds and did not feel like having a cocktail. Unfortunately, they don't serve hot water. They offered the tiny Evian bottle of what, 330ml and it costs about VND120k not inclusive of tax?!?!?! I'm quite confused, almost USD5.50 for that bottle, nah.
