The ultimate rooftop bar for the festive season

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to find yourself perched on Sofitel Brisbane Central’s VIP rooftop terrace, you’ll know it’s a pretty swish place to wile a night away. With epic city views, lush astroturf and usually a whole lot of champagne, it’s the ultimate weekend hangout for special events. Lucky for those of us who aren’t living the high life, Sofitel are launching a pop up bar on the rooftop just in time for the festive season. Every Friday night until December 18, from 3.30pm until 11pm, you can take the elevator up to the swanky terrace and take in 180 degree views of the city while you relax on a lounge, cocktail in hand. With talented mixologists shaking up creative cocktails, plentiful bubbles (of course) and delicious share plates to nibble on, the Pop Up Soiree Bar is the perfect spot for end of year catch ups, after work drinks or just an excuse to leave the office early on a Friday night. You’ll find the hidden the sky high bar on the Soiree Deck on Level 3 of Sofitel Brisbane Central, 249 Turbot Street Brisbane.  Words by Ranyhyn Akui
