Located on the ninth floor of the Johannesburg Holiday Inn, the opulent Skye Bar is blessed with beautiful views out over the surrounding city. There’s something awfully beguiling about sipping a cocktail while looking out a spectacular panorama and the views elevate what might otherwise have been a generic, if attractive, hotel bar into something a little more special. The bar is accessed by an external lift and the space itself is plush and comfortable in a fairly contemporary way though the chandeliers add a traditional twist to the decor. The drinks are decent enough and the location makes it the perfect place for a romantic evening or to indulge in sundowner or two.
