Africa’s Highest Urban Bar, Alto234, Opens At The Leonardo

Est. Reading: 2 minutes
The doors to Africa’s highest urban bar are officially open, boasting 360-degrees of breathtaking views over our beloved city. Named Alto234 – height in Latin and 234 for how tall it stands in metres – this incredible space can be found on the rooftop of The Leonardo in Sandton, and will serve only the world’s finest when it comes to drinks, bar tapas and service.

Introducing Alto234!

As leaders in hospitality, we are on a constant quest to find great lifestyle and entertainment spaces. The rooftop of the tallest building in South Africa is so exceptional that it had to be shared with all,” says Robert Hodson, COO of Legacy Hotels & Resorts.

In celebration of its opening, Moët & Chandon gifted Alto234 with a special edition package. Delivered up to the 57th floor in grand champagne style via helicopter, Joburg tongues have been wagging about what could be inside the box.


Revealed on social media, the package was a limited edition Moët Mini Machine, which will offer guests the opportunity to experience French savoir-faire at its finest. Using Moët & Chandon tokens, guests can order Moët Mini 200ml bottles with golden sippers, right out of the machine at the perfect temperature. Without doubt, it’s the most innovative champagne service in Africa, and exclusive to Alto234.

There’s something dazzling about the combination of perfectly chilled champagne and panoramic city views stretching to the horizon. So, the partnership between Alto234 and Moët & Chandon was a natural one – after all, could there be a more perfect match than Africa’s highest bar and the world’s most loved champagne?” says Patrick Leslie, Portfolio Manager at RGBC.


What To Expect

Offering a variety of experiences, Alto234 will provide guests and tourists an opportunity to capture the amazing sights of Johannesburg – west to the Magaliesberg mountain range, north to the Voortrekker Monument, south to the once home of Nelson Mandela, and east to the planes taking off at OR Tambo International Airport.

This amazing space can accommodate up to 100 people across seven seating areas, each with its own unique views of our beautiful and beloved city below.


The bar and food offering will be catered by the award-winning AURUM Restaurant and what they have to offer is nothing short of sublime.

The wine list includes the best on offer from across the globe, as well as familiar favourites from the local Cape Winelands. Cocktails will be fun, refreshing, trendy and edgy with the right amount of sophistication. The luxury tapas menu will offer peckish guests with a bespoke range of snacks, many of which have been paired with the bar menu.

High. On. Life.
