It’s the final month of Light Up 2018 at the Burj Khalifa and if you still haven’t seen the record-breaking laser show, then here’s your chance to do it right.
The menu is available 30 minutes prior to each show and throughout, with the light spectacle taking place at 8pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and at 10pm on Thursdays and Fridays.
The show promises to be an absolute jaw-dropper – if you can tear your eyes away from the extravaganza on your plate.
The set menu includes a choice of freshly baked cheesy focaccia, crusty house baked ‘pizza style’ herbed bread, soup of the day, polpette and meatballs for starter.
You’ll then be faced with a difficult decision – risotto, pasta, or saltimbocca di pollo (prosciutto-stuffed chicken breast), and for dessert you’ll be presented with a platter of Via Veneto favourites.
The world’s tallest building currently holds the Guinness World Record title of the largest light and sound show on a single building.
The mesmerising feature welcomed more than a million visitors during its debut on New Year’s Eve with a dazzling display spanning a surface area of 109,252sq m – that’s the size of about 20 football pitches.
The show is set on the new LED panel displays on Burj Khalifa, featuring over 1.1 million pixels, more than 118 tonnes of light beams and accessories and more than 28.7km of cables, transforming Downtown Dubai into one of the world’s brightest spots, measuring 76.3 million lumens of brightness.
The show pays homage to the rich traditions of the Middle East, and as well as all of the flashy lights, you can expect featured projections of Arabic calligraphy, sand dunes and even a soaring falcon.
There is also marked reference to the Year of Zayed, with a portrait of the UAE’s founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan.
