This follows news that the De Vere Group had bought the London venue as part of a full management contract.

Situated on London’s Millbank, Altitude comprises a variety of event spaces including a 300 seat private cinema room and panoramic views of the London skyline from the 28th & 29th floors.

On 26 June, Karen Bryson from Shameless, Martin Delaney from Zero Dark Thirty and Rez Kempton from Spooks attended the opening bash.

After Pimms, champagne, strawberries and ice creams in the Wimbledon-themed River & Paint Rooms, guests were invited to soak up the views from the top floors.

Guests were also treated to food from London’s best markets, from Casterbridge beef strip loin and Yorkshire puddings to Tubby Issac’s jellied eels and dressed Dorset crab.

Darren Patt, managing director at De Vere Venues, said: "De Vere is extremely excited to be working with such a great venue, with its 360° panoramic view of our London Skyline. De Vere Venues is sure to develop existing and create new relationships which will help establish Altitude as one of London’s greatest event spaces."
