Golden Ticket hunt launch of Sky Bar

Spinnaker Tower is celebrating the launch of a stylish new Sky Bar with a treasure hunt – and the lucky finders of 100 Golden Tickets are invited to ‘drink in the view’ with a free cocktail at the iconic landmark.

From June 6th to 8th, tickets will be hidden in and around Portsmouth. The distinctive tickets, each featuring a QR code and unique number, could be found anywhere that can be seen in the tower’s spectacular 23-mile view.

Those lucky enough to find a Golden Ticket can scan the code and use their unique number to book for them and a guest to enjoy free entry to Sky Bar and a free cocktail each.

There’s also one Grand Prize up for grabs – all those who register will enter a draw for the chance to win an exclusive VIP Sky Bar night out for themselves and up to 14 friends with drinks included.

The Golden Ticket hunt marks the run-up to the launch of Sky Bar, which is due to open on June 22nd and will serve drinks every Thursday to Sunday night from 8pm to midnight.

The venue, on the middle floor above the tower’s main viewing deck, will offer a menu of premium drinks and cocktails including a Negroni, Old Fashioned, Martini, and a signature ‘Spinnaker Tower’ cocktail.

Tony Sammut, General Manager at Spinnaker Tower, said: “Sky Bar is a significant new investment for Spinnaker Tower and is designed to provide the perfect setting for guests to enjoy spectacular sunset, evening and night views while enjoying a classic cocktail. We’ve pulled out all the stops to create the perfect spot to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, entertain a group of friends or start a memorable night out.

“To celebrate, we wanted to offer visitors to the region and those who live here the chance to experience our Sky Bar for themselves. You never know where you might find a Golden Ticket – so keep your eyes peeled from Tuesday, June 6th

We look forward to welcoming all of those who are lucky enough to find one, and we can’t wait to offer everyone a truly unique experience at Sky Bar.

Clues to the hidden ticket’s locations will be posted on Spinnaker Tower’s Instagram and Facebook accounts as well as at Sky Bar’s own Facebook page and Instagram account @skybaratspinnaker.

Ticket holders are encouraged to snap a photo with their winning ticket and share with the hashtag #TicketToTheTop.
