South Africa has some eye-wateringly beautiful scenery which could either be a focal point for a venue – or the ideal backdrop for an event. Whether it’s the City of Gold’s sparkling skyline, the Mother City’s majestic mountain or Durban’s Indian Ocean vistas, our views compete with the best in the world.

While many local restaurants and venues have taken to installing floor-to-ceiling windows to make the most of the views on offer, it’s hard to beat a rooftop venue for the way it invites the scenery in, to become part of experience. There’s something simultaneously romantic, edgy and glamorous about a venue perched atop a tall building that invites the elements in and holds the promise of a great party spot. The perfect rooftop venue must perform a delicate tightrope walk – allow for shelter from the elements without obstructing the views; make it comfortable, but keep it classy and lay on a food, drink and music experience that matches the effortless ‘cool’ of looking down on the bustling city streets.

Ozone at the Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong has harnessed the appeal of being ‘the world’s highest bar’, perched on the 118th floor of the ICC building. New Yorkers are obsessed with Tribeca Rooftop – a venue which has become a popular wedding destination. Tribeca Rooftop boasts stunning views across the New York skyline, with the Empire State Building, downtown Manhattan, and the Hudson River all in its eye line.

Meanwhile, Kensington Rooftop Gardens in London is one of the best rooftop locations in the world. Not only is it a wedding venue, but it plays host to a trendy bar and buzzing nightclub as well and is owned by none other than Richard Branson. Meanwhile, Lebua Hotel’s rooftop gives visitors the ultimate view of Bangkok. The spectacular 63rd floor rooftop of the State Tower in Bangkok is home to the fabulous Sky Bar and exquisite restaurant Sirocco along with the luxurious Lebua hotel below. Famed from the movie, The Hangover 2, your event at Lebua will be somewhat less chaotic, with world class food and incredible cocktails. Melbourne’s Luminaire is also a world-famous rooftop venue. Elegant, dramatic, and entirely breath-taking, this sprawling space, with room for 250 for a sit down dinner will guarantee the wow factor.

Making maximum use of its prime location in the heart of Cape Town – regularly recognized as one of the world’s most beautiful cities – is 180 Lounger. The space atop the 16th floor of The Terraces building on the trendy restaurant strip of Bree Street delivers panoramic views of UNESCO World Heritage Site and official member of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Table Mountain, as well as down towards the Foreshore where luxury cruise liners from around the world pull into the majestic Table Bay harbour.

As opposed to being an always-on party hotspot, 180 Lounger is a customizable multi-use event space which offers a pristine location for corporate events, business functions, product launches or private functions and an ‘out-of-the-box’ meeting venue or working facility.
