Burj Khalifa restaurant ‘highest from ground’
Dubai, October 4, 2011
At.mosphere, the lounge and grill located in Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, has been recognised as the highest restaurant from ground level by Guinness World Records.
Senior managers of Emaar Properties, developer of Burj Khalifa, received the plaque honouring At.mosphere at an event from Talal Omar, adjudication manager of Guinness World Records.
"We are pleased to announce that At.mosphere has been recognised with this prestigious Guinness World Record award. This is a testament of Dubai's ability to develop and add to our city's exclusive lifestyle dining options,” said Ahmad Al Matrooshi, managing director, Emaar Properties.
“At.mosphere has become a must-visit destination for not only tourists but also for residents in Dubai who can unwind in true style."
At.mosphere is located on Level 122 of Burj Khalifa, at a height of 442 metres (1,350 ft). It is only two levels below 'At the Top, Burj Khalifa,' the world's highest observatory deck with an outdoor terrace.
The entrance is through Burj Khalifa's Corporate Suites lobby with guests exiting the express elevator on Level 123 to face a two-storeyed glass atrium. A flight of cantilevered staircases lead them to the arrival lobby where they can enjoy panoramic views of the city.
The grill at At.mosphere, open for lunch from 12.30pm to 3pm and for dinner from 7pm to 11.30pm, is billed as 'the must visit' restaurant in the city, on par with the world's finest. The upscale lounge, with a seating capacity of 130 and a private area for 35, is open from 12pm to 2am, and opens to glittering views of the city. - TradeArabia News Service
