Dubai opens ‘world’s highest restaurant’January 24th, 2011 - 3:20 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan 24 (ANI): Dubai has set a new record by opening world’s highest restaurant.
A fine dining establishment called At.mosphere has opened on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower in the world, at a height of 1,350 feet, reports Fox News.
The eatery is just three feet lower to the ground than the observation deck of the Willis Tower in Chicago, but perhaps more astonishing is that it is not even half way up the 2,717-foot tower, leaving open the possibility that its claim to fame will be short-lived.
The previous record holder was the 360 restaurant in the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada, which is situated at a height of 1,151 feet.
Owners of At.mosphere described its food as eclectic European, and the menu has prices to match the restaurant’s lofty perch.
A cup of coffee costs 8 dollars. (ANI)
