From my previous posts I’m sure you are aware I’m partial to a glass of bubbles in the sky. This week I was lucky enough to go along with Soton Bloggers to take a sneak peak at The Emirates Spinnaker Tower’s new event Champagne Sundays. The pop up bar offers the perfect backdrop of the sunset over Portsmouth Harbour whilst enjoying a glass of Castelnau Champagne.
Many times I have been shopping at Gunwharf Quays but have never quite made it up The Spinnaker Tower. Even with the rain this week, the views from 1100 metres above sea level on View Deck 1 were incredible. On arrival you are greeted with a glass of Castelnau Champagne and live music playing in the background.
The glass walkway is a great way to get a real sense of the height, and a glass of champagne is the best Dutch courage if heights unsettle you, (some of the group were definitely thankful for it). The event allows you to walk around freely in a relaxed bar environment taking in all of the sights. A bar is also available offering a selection of champagne tastes, such as Lanson Black and Veuve Cliquot.
So if you fancy doing something a little bit different this summer I recommend paying Champagne Sundays a visit.
