The new Clouds Bar at Spinnaker Tower in Gunwharf Quays Portsmouth.

The waterfront visitor attraction and venue was a popular spot host to many events every year including weddings over the summer months, however, following the pandemic this changed.

Tony Sammut, general manager of the tower, said: ‘Despite already having hosted two wedding since reopening and having had several successful wedding show-rounds in recent weeks, we have found ourselves in the unusual position of having Friday nights unbooked during the peak month of August.

‘Rather than rest on our laurels, the team are providing a new experience and making the spectacular night-time views available to the general public for four evenings of cocktails, music and amazing scenery.’

The Clouds Bar will be open every Friday in August on the view decks and will offer a full range of drinks including a cocktail menu. Guests will need to purchase an admission ticket at £5 to gain admission to the exclusive venue and are encouraged to plan ahead and pre-book online to avoid missing out.
