Forget San Deck, we’ve found your new favourite rooftop bar in Sandton! While the Sandton Sun might be a spectacular place to have a few drinks with friends after work or after a long weekend spent socialising it up, the rooftop bar can get a little crowded. So where does a fabulous socialite go when there are no more seats at the super popular spot? Not very far actually, because just across the road from Sandton City you will find a spot that is just as fancy pants, with sweeping views of Sandton and surrounds. Here’s why you need to check out the Outdoor Bar and Sun Deck at the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel the next time you’re having drinks with friends.
The stunning Sandton bar offers guests modern decor and comfy sun loungers and couches where they can relax next to the sparkling pool and soak up the fabulous view. We love that guests have so many options for seating – from slipping on a bikini and relaxing on a sun lounger by the pool to grabbing a comfy couch or high-chair table where they can take full advantage of the incredible view there’s a spot for everyone at the bar.
With a menu offering delicious snacks, yummy cocktails and other drinks this is the kind of spot where you can rock up for post-lunch drinks and stay to enjoy the sunset. While their menu offers loads of great options we love that the Outdoor Bar and Sun Deck offers sushi specials every day of the week. Sushi lovers can join the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel for sushi on the deck at just R 95 for a platter for one and a glass of bubbly every day of the week – with specials like this there’s really no reason to go anywhere else.
And, if sushi isn’t your thing then head through for their 2-for-1 cocktail specials from Monday to Friday from 17:00 – 19:00. The cocktail menu offers classic favourites as well as some unique flavours and concoctions. The bar also offers wine, whiskies and much more for guests to sip and savour.
For those who want a fun place to kick off the weekend, the Outdoor Bar and Sun Deck is the perfect place to get the party started. Join the Radisson Blue Gautrain Hotel for their DJ sessions every Thursday and Friday from 16:00 and do some serious chair dancing before heading out on the town.
Of course, if you plan to have a more chilled night out, then guests can make their way to the hotel’s fabulous Central One restaurant for a bite to eat after watching the sun go down on the deck.
The Outdoor Bar and Sun Deck is also the perfect place to host a private pool party. Rent out the deck for your birthday, bridal shower or engagement party and live it up with family and friends for an afternoon or evening to remember!
