Dubai breaks world record for having ‘highest lounge in a building’

Dubai isn’t short of any outstanding world records – largest building in the shape of a picture frame and most active city, to name a few.

And now, the tallest building in the world has the highest lounge in a building. Impressive.

The Lounge, Burj Khalifa has just broken the Guinness World Record at an incomparable height of 585.36m (1,920 ft 5 inches) in the sky.

Clearly, it’s been hitting all the (literal) high notes.

The Lounge is set on multiple floors of the Burj Khalifa – 152, 153 and 154 – with sky-high views of the city and offering a selection of beverages and canapes. Better yet, it also features a stunning outdoor terrace.

As for what guests can do there, you can take on its high tea offering from 12:30pm to 4pm daily, and stick around from 5.30pm to 7pm for sundowners, offering up mixed drinks and snacks.

For some night time views of the city, expect a lengthy mixed drink selection from 7.30pm to midnight, and, if you’re lucky, catch some of the daily live music from international artists and performers.

Ahmad Al Falasi, Executive Director of Group Operations at Emaar Properties, accepted the Guinness World Record (GWR) certificate by Shaifali Mishra, an official adjudicator at GWR.

Let’s take you through a rundown of what records the Burj Khalifa holds; tallest building in the world; tallest man-made structure on land; the highest outdoor observation deck thanks to At the Top; The largest light and sound show on a single building; the largest LED-illuminated façade and tallest LED-illuminated façade.

What’s up next for the UAE to break, record-wise? Well, Ras Al Khaimah is planning on breaking another two records for its New Year’s firework display.

Keep those records coming, Dubai.
Open daily 12.30pm-4pm (high tea), 5.30pm-7pm (sundowners), 7.30pm-midnight (night). Floor 152, 153 and 154, Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai, www.burjkhalifa.ae.
