Our favorite way to start any evening in Saigon is watching the whole city light up from above, and D Chill is one of the places which has an unobstructed view of the signature Saigon skylight.

Though located on the rooftop of a local hotel, quite overwhelmed by other colorful stores and restaurants, the bar always took people's breath away once they stepped into the open air. Their diverse menu of drinks, from beers, cocktails, mocktails to juice and snacks with uncredible reasonable prices for the location, as well as the cool breeze and trendy music will make your evening become one of the most special moments of the day.
