Jo’burgers love to celebrate, let’s be honest – new job, promotion, new car…it’s Thursday, you know. And what better way to do that in super classy style, with a glass of bubbly!
We are so blessed in this city that we get to enjoy the great weather, beautiful sunsets and amazing views, literally just down the road from our homes – and these three spots are our fave for enjoying a special event or occasion: the Island Bar on the pool deck of Southern Sun Hyde Park, the San Deck at Sandton Sun Hotel, and the Skye Bar on the 9th floor of the Holiday Inn Sandton.
Yes, these are all Tsogo Sun owned properties, and this group gets it spot on every time with the perfect combination of the ultimate drinks and exceptional settings. All three venues are becoming favourite sundowner destinations on Jozi’s buzzing social scene.
The San Deck at Sandton Sun is a very classy and trendy outdoor venue that boasts views of the surrounding Sandton skyline topped by unforgettable African sunsets. With large fire pits for the slightly chillier evenings, lounge seating, live music, and a DJ on weekends, it’s perfect for informal meet ups and special social occasions alike – and offers tasty, light , deck meals throughout the day.
The Island Bar at Southern Sun Hyde Park is a vibrant setting around a sparkling pool or also offers comfortable indoor lounge seating, from which to enjoy the stunning view through the wall to wall windows. The varied menu offering includes cocktails, light snacks, including their renowned (and incredibly delicious) sushi and sashimi, and indulgent sundowners.
Last but certainly not least, The Skye Bar at Holiday Inn Sandton on Rivonia Road is a luxurious and ultra-comfortable venue with a relaxed ambience, and also offering stunning views of Sandton and beyond. It features an inspiring cocktail menu and is a popular place to catch up with friends, enjoy a romantic night out, or entertain corporate colleagues.
Tsogo Sun’s portfolio includes over 90 hotels and 14 casino and entertainment destinations throughout South Africa, Africa, the Seychelles and Abu Dhabi.
