The Ultimate 80’s party experience at Sky

Sounds of the Eighties from the renowned DJ Dave Yapp will launch the inaugural“Best of the 80’s” event!

Get ready for the most glorious journey taking you through the hits of yester year.

Audiences will revel in nostalgia as we embrace the hit tracks of the 80s at one of Durban’s most picturesque locations – SKY VENUE located on the 31st floor of the iconic Southern Sun Maharani Tower.

Yes we are talking retro fashion, dinner, dance and of course music that will bring you an evening packed with the most delightful surprises.


Smash hits likely to thrill crowds include: bands like Duran Duran, The Police and Dire Straits, while on the pop synth scene we witnessed The Human League, Culture Club, Thompson Twins, Depeche Mode and many more. On the other side of the Atlantic we had the more rocky sounds of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Steve Miller Band, Blondie and Talking Heads. On the pop front we had Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel from Genesis topping the charts while alternative music was making its mark with bands such as REM, The Cure and Violent Femmes.

“We are thrilled to launch our 80’s evenings at Sky which will now be occurring every month until November this year. Guests could indeed look forward to welcome drinks, a scrumptious dinner menu followed by an evening of 80’s classics.

“We believe there is a critical need for entertainment that appeals to crowd which frequented the former Raffles nightclub in Durban. Sky is the ideal location that they connect with and events such as these show them a sense of belonging,” said John Aritho, GM Southern Sun Maharani Tower.


The 1980s is indeed the most favoured tune decade – so join the 80s evening to make this a party bash you will never forget!

Don your favourite gear from that era and stand a chance to win great prizes.

Cost: R380 per person includes Dinner and a welcome drink on arrival.

Enjoy the evening responsibly, spend an additional R880 per room including breakfast.
