If you fancy dining out overlooking some fantastic views, you can now enjoy a meal at 1,350 feet high in Dubai’s At.mosphere, now the world’s highest restaurant.
The luxury restaurant has opened its doors to the public on the 122nd floor of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. Diners can access At.mosphere via its private lift, which takes them up from the building’s ground floor to the restaurant in just 57 seconds!
The venue can accommodate up to 210 diners over its main dining floor and private dining rooms. You can expect to enjoy a modern European cuisine or stop by at high noon for an afternoon tea.
Unfortunately the sky high views comes at a sky high price, a cup of coffee costs around £5, while those wanting to book one of At.mosphere’s private dining areas will fork out at least around £111 per head.
Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties PJSC (the building developer) commented: “At.mosphere is about offering the best in dining. Every aspect of the restaurant has been carefully designed and executed – be it the elegant decor, warm ambience, food choice and service standards.”
The world’s previous highest restaurant was in Toronto’s CN Tower, at a height of 1,148ft.
