Olympus Sky Bar – Joburg’s trendy new rooftop venue at Emperors Palace

Sep 5, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

Visitors to Emperors Palace can now enjoy sundowners with panoramic views of the city while watching airplanes take off and land at the new and exclusive Olympus Sky Bar located at the Peermont Metcourt hotel. Dubbed one of Joburg’s freshest rooftop venues, it’s the perfect setting for those looking to relax and unwind.  


“The Olympus Sky Bar is an exciting new entertainment offering at The Palace of Dreams and a welcome addition to the city’s nightlife offerings for those who are always on the lookout for new hotspots,” says Clive Tavener,  general manager of Emperors Palace. “The sky bar offers a new premium experience for the city’s socialites who’ll love the new and trendy spot that’s been designed to offer unique experiences to guests.” 

For those looking for a modern and sophisticated location to host private functions, the venue can accommodate up to 120 guests, making it an ideal destination for everything from birthday parties and corporate launches, to year-end functions and everything in between. Venue hire rates include exclusive use of the rooftop venue as well as access to Emperors Palace’s food and beverage services, complete with hostesses, bartenders and cocktail staff included in the package. Entertainment, including DJ’s, music artists and bands, can be arranged for group bookings, functions and events at an additional fee. 

On standard operating days, the Olympus Sky Bar offers an indulgent tapas-style menu that includes a fabulous selection of grilled satay skewers, meze boards and other light meals, while private function clients and groups can choose from a selection of set menus to perfectly complement their event. A fully licenced bar is stocked with premium spirits, wines and the finest local and imported beers along with expert mixologists to whip up a wide range of delicious cocktails.  


The venue can be accessed by taking the lift up to the rooftop, a short walking distance from the Peermont Metcourt hotel foyer. An entry fee of R150 applies (excluding functions), which includes an opening special drinks voucher to the value of R50. Controlled venue access means guests enjoy a premium experience, complete with designer drinks, a night of lounging around on comfy couches, soaking up incredible views, and enjoying great entertainment provided by DJs on the decks or live music. If the weather turns, there are covered areas and umbrellas that will provide shade from the elements.  

The look and feel of the venue is based on minimalist décor principles with white chosen as the primary colour in the overall palette that creates an air of contemporary elegance. The design also includes fabric elements in hues of blue and teal to link back into the scheme and aesthetics used throughout the hotel and pool area, both of which are visible from the rooftop.   

“Much like its namesake, the Olympus Sky Bar makes you feel like you’re on top of the world,” says Clive. “The space invites guests to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy the city from a unique vantage point. What’s more, we’re thrilled to roll out the red carpet to local socialites, trendsetters, business people and those looking to take some time out.” 

The Olympus Sky Bar will be open to the public from Fridays to Sundays, a day prior to a public holiday and on public holidays. The venue will also be available for events and functions bookings on certain weekdays. To book an event, call 011 928 1103 or email [email protected].  

Guests can easily turn their visit into an overnight stay at the contemporary three-star Peermont Metcourt hotel, by taking advantage of an array of affordable accommodation packages. For bookings contact Peermont Central Reservations on 011 928 1928 or email [email protected]
