- I went to Altitude 360 when Pop Up Ping Pong (https://twitter.com/PingPopPong) hosted its brilliant ping pong party there in collaboration with #BRGR (https://twitter.com/hashtagbrgr). It is undoubtedly a great location with good views over London. I would go there again alone for the view. You can walk around, look in every direction, pick your favourite view and sit by the window to enjoy the sight. I read about Pop Up Ping Pong before I went there, they popped up at a few other locations in the past, and I will definitely go to their next event. I was not entirely sure how drinking cocktails, eating burgers and playing ping pong go together. How stupid I was - it's simply the perfect recipe for a great night out! I played a few rather competitive types and a few relaxed people, at the end it was always big fun. When I arrived the bar was overly busy and quite unorganised, they simply could not cope with the amount of people coming through the doors and asking for drinks. Many people got frustrated by the waiting time. Later it got better, but still, I was disappointed that a bar at a prime event space did not get their act together. It also got very hot up there; with closed windows, the air conditioning was a weak point and the while all these crazy matches were being played, the heat became an issue. Perhaps, Altitude 360 was a little bit above capacity, or they just were not properly prepared for an event of that scale. It did not help, that Altitude 360 did not allow the organisers to play their own music. Now, when it comes to Altitude 360, it was not a perfect event. But overall, Pop Up Ping Pong is a great idea that worked well. The small burgers - which should perhaps be called sliders - taste excellent. So does the tasty crack pie. If you like burgers, or ping pong, or even both, you should not miss their next pop up - follow https://twitter.com/PingPopPong for the latest updates on dates and locations. And if you have a corporate event or birthday party coming up, it might well be worth to take Altitude 360 into consideration when you look for a nice location with impressive views. But honestly, my good review reflects the event itself more than the event space.
