Dining 400m up

The world’s highest restaurant started serving food this week, 400 metres above the ground below. Definitely not the best place to take your other half on valentine’s day if they’re scared of heights, the restaurant is located at the top of the world’s tallest skyscraper.

To celebrate the restaurants opening, over 400 balloons were released into the air, marking the first day of business for ‘Atmosphere.’ The restaurant, located on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, has a 180 degree view of Dubai and features full length windows to give customers the feeling of floating near the edge.

The restaurants designer, Adam Tihany, has designed the restaurant to be like a ‘luxury yacht in the sky. He said of the challenges faced with designing a restaurant so high in the sky, Some people were a bit apprehensive…would people be comfortable at that altitude, would it feel a little strange? So my desire was to create a very beautiful and almost a cave-like space that when you are up here, you feel safe, you feel elegant and luxurious, you feel sexy,”

Whilst restaurant chef Dwayne Cheer said his food was not fine dining, a starter will cost around £40 and a main course up to £70.
