The Sandton Times joined media and event professionals for a first look at Level 45 (L45) at The Leonardo, South Africa’s tallest building. Having made waves with the opening of Alto234, Africa’s highest urban bar, a few years ago, The Leonardo looks to build on its unique position, towering high above the Sandton skyline, offering guests an experience with arguably one of the best views in town!


In response to evolving trends in the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions (MICE) industry, Legacy Hotels & Resorts recognized the demand for versatile venues. Now, Level 45 looks to offer event organizers a blank canvas to craft memorable experiences tailored to their specific needs, 45 floors up in the sky.



What sets Level 45 apart is not just its lofty perch but also its adaptability. The minimalist interior provides a versatile canvas for event planners to unleash their creativity. With dark grey and black tones complemented by rustic brick accents and retro piping, the space is pretty much what you want to make of it, accommodating diverse themes and décor styles.


Hara Jackson, Sales Director of Legacy Hotels & Resorts, also expressed excitement about this addition, highlighting its potential to become a flagship event venue in Johannesburg. Level 45 will also act as an alternative to Alto234, which has become a popular destination with locals and international visitors. In case of bad weather or high demand at Alto234, visitors will be able to still get all the views and hospitality at Level 45.

Beyond its picturesque view, Level 45 also promises exceptional culinary offerings. Managed by the acclaimed team behind AURUM Restaurant and staffed by The Leonardo’s personnel, guests can expect good service and cuisine. Whether hosting a wedding, corporate dinner, or cocktail party, Level 45 looks to offer a seamless and prestigious experience.


As South Africa’s newest highest venue, Level 45 brings a fresh event space into the heart of Sandton. Whether basking in the glow of a sunset over the Magaliesberg hills or savouring a sunrise breakfast amid the bustle of planes at OR Tambo, visitors to Level 45 can enjoy uninterrupted views in comfort and style.
