World's 'highest restaurant' opens in Dubai

At.mosphere opens on the 122 floor of the Burj Khalifa

Diners keen to get a booking at the world’s highest restaurant may need to save up after the Burj Khalifa eatery revealed patrons will be charged a minimum of Dhs450 ($122) a head.

The 442m-high At.mosphere, which opened its doors to the public on Sunday, will charge guests a hefty minimum fee for the pleasure of dinner at the lounge, which features panoramic views across Dubai.

Those wanting to book the luxury restaurant’s private dining area will be expected to fork out at least Dhs650 ($176.9) per guest, while afternoon tea comes in at nearly $100 (Dhs350).

For drinks and snacks in the lounge area, guests must spend Dhs200 ($54.45) per head.

Marc Dardenne, CEO of Emaar Hospitality Group and Emaar Hotels & Resorts, said the glass-walled restaurant raised the bar for Dubai’s hospitality industry.

“I think it’s going to set new standards for Dubai and maybe the world and even give people the opportunity to see something different when they stay in Dubai,” said Dardenne.

The steep prices don’t appear to be deterring the punters. The restaurant is booked out for its first two days of opening, and Dardenne is confident its popularity will continue.
