Indulging in some high-altitude hijinks — aka locating a vantage point to peer over the city from while consuming cocktails— isn't difficult in Brisbane, but doing so from the Sofitel's rooftop is. For most of the year, the hotel's highest space is only available for private functions and to folks of the VIP variety.
Until December 18, that's changing as part of Pop Up Soiree. As a spring and summer treat, the Sofitel is throwing open their doors (and stairs and elevators) to the rest of the city. Of course, they're making an event out of it — why wouldn't they?
Every Friday evening from 3.30pm, anyone fond of some panoramic fun can converge on the outdoor terrace on the edge of the building. You'll enjoy sweeping sights over the CBD, plus live music to set a festive mood, in case the 180-degree city vista hasn't done that already.
If you think champagne and cocktails are the perfect drinks for the occasion, you'd be right, which is why you'll find both in abundance here. There'll also be share plates for snacking on and lounges for relaxing on. Given how chilled out you're likely to be thanks to ending your week on such a high, we think you'll need them.
Pop Up Soiree runs every Friday afternoon until December 18. For more information, visit the Sofitel website.
