The world’s tallest building in Dubai, Burj Khalifa has something else to astonish the whole planet with – the world’s highest restaurant in a building at 442 metres high on Level 122.
At.mosphere is reached by its own private elevator from the tower’s corporate suites lobby and can accommodate 210 people over a lounge and grill, each with an unparalleled view of the emirate’s eye-popping skyline. Adorned in mahogany walls and ceilings, Adam Tihany furnishings, and floors of cafe au lait limestone and hand-tufted carpet, At.mosphere features a stunning beverage display and cellar.
Casual and friendly staff members greet guests, who can choose from the lounge or the grill experience. The At.mosphere grill emphasises on fresh products and healthy, simple cooking – grilled, broiled or baked. The food choice is complemented by an extensive beverage selection.
Mr Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman, Emaar Properties PJSC, the developer of Burj Khalifa, said: “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.”
An à la carte menu of seasonal dishes, including langoustine raviolo with sautéed sweetbreads, or try the seven-course tasting menu. At.mosphere’s grill restaurant is a most handsome venue: with its polished wood panels, crisp white tablecloths, glittering glassware and low lighting, it would look good anywhere, be it on the first floor or the 122nd. As it happens, its elevated location provides a spectacular view: to see Dubai lit up at night is a sight to behold.
Previously, the world’s highest restaurant was 360, at a height of 350 metres in Toronto’s CN Tower. The restaurant at the highest elevation is the Chacaltaya Ski Resort, outside Bolivia’s capital, La Paz, with 5421m.
