Wednesday, September 5 saw the official launch of Skyloft, the brand new pop-up space from Altitude London. Two hundred specially invited guests from companies including Fitch, BBC, BP, Deloitte, Yahoo, Barclays, BT and Emap attended the launch at the top of Westminster’s Millbank Tower.

Guests enjoyed a selection of traditional British bowl food from caterer Private Food Design, in keeping with the design of this new space. On the menu were old favourites including fish and chips and bangers and mash, as well as meatballs with baby basil and arrabiata sauce, a goat’s cheese and beetroot salad and Lavender cheesecake.

The Skyloft refit was created especially for the summer games. A quintessentially British design inspired the venue, which offers panoramic views of the capital from the top of London’s tallest riverside venue. Retro design features include an extraordinary wooden floor, recycled from an Edinburgh gymnasium and exposed brickwork reclaimed from a disused Manchester cotton mill. Ironwork and wooden beams complement the venue’s vintage feel.

Danielle Etzin, CEO, Altitude London, said: “We are delighted with the response to our brand new venue, and look forward to welcoming guests back in the near future. We believe this exciting event space offers something completely new and we are thrilled by the feedback we have received from our clients.”
