Skye Bar

Luxurious bar on the 9th floor with sweeping views of Sandton. Drink in the panoramic view whilst drinking a perfectly opulent sundowner or two. Like the daring new cocktail I tried, the Honeybee Martini! Trust me it’s so delicious I had two!

The plush furniture and decadent chandeliers will have you lingering for more.

Hours of operation: 4 pm – 1 am
