FIRST LOOK: ALTITUDE BEACH CLUB LAUNCHES

Sushi, champagne and sunshine is what Johannesburg’s newest beach escape Altitude Beach Club in Fourways promises party-goers, as it opened its doors last month.

With an initial pre-launch called off at last minute, Altitude Beach Club went ahead with its opening weekend, filled with a myriad of big entertainment names. The Sandton Times had a chance to take a look at the new venue during a second wave launch party, hosting media and influencers for a night out.

With a global shift in party experiences moving towards day time entertainment, development entrepreneur Damian Michaels announced his latest world class venture earlier this year, tucked away next to the newly renovated Fourways Mall. Having paid his school fees in kitchens such as The Baron Group and Chefs in Motion, and having owned and operated Rhapsody’s and MyGrillMyBar, its fair to say Damian Michael has experience when it comes to entertainment and hospitality.

It has been quite some time since the city has seen a significant new entrant into the club scene and Altitude Beach Club hopes to be Johannesburg’s hottest water-front dining and lifestyle venue, hosting just under 1500 guests at full capacity.

Best known for combining rooftop sunsets with chilled champagne and top DJ’s in Pretoria over the past two years, alongside a culinary coalition on top of Sun Internationals Times Square Casino, the Altitude Group franchise format will be flipped on its head with the birth of this Johannesburg undertaking.

“The climate in Johannesburg is consistent with the top cities in the world when it comes to warmer conditions. The time is now right to bring the brand to my backyard. Traditionally Cape Town has played host to these kinds of venues but the 10-month outdoor friendly weather patterns were a no brainer for me. Johannesburg is indeed Africa’s engine room and the next generation expect nothing but the best – something our team constantly thrives on delivering. Creating an unforgettable experience within our venues requires a balance of great food, flawless service and a desert of even better music.”

– Altitude Beach Club owner, Damian Michaels
