Cuisine: Contemporary British cuisine with a French flair.
Located on the 122nd floor is the latest high end Restaurant and Lounge in Dubai, At.Mosphere. This restaurant is accessed through its own entrance and reception on the ground level of the Burj Khalifa, where you are transported in its own private lift to floor 123.
As you travel in the lift you are unaware of the speed you are travelling ever upwards to your destination. As you step out of the lift you are greeted with the first of many fantastic views over the emirate of Dubai. This is where you will no doubt start taking one of many photographs whilst up this high.
You are directed by a spiral staircase down to the 122nd floor to the restaurant and lounge entrance where your name is checked off. If you book High Tea here High tea is exactly that, a tea eaten at 442 meters up in the sky, something that would only normally happen at that height in a low flying airplane. High tea consists of sandwiches, scones, quiche or quails eggs and desert, accompanied by a glass of champagne or tea/coffee or mocktails. High Tea is a more extensive form of afternoon tea, with more savoury course then that of a normal afternoon tea.
Sprawled over 1,030 square meters on its own level of the world’s tallest building, two levels below ‘At The Top – level 124’ the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa, which is the highest floor you are able to go as a member of the public, yet knowing that there is still 40 floors above you to a height of a further 400+ meters high, gives you a sense of the shear size of the Burj Khalifa.
At.Mosphere is one of the world’s finest luxury dining and lounge experience with unparalleled views of Dubai and the Arabian Gulf.
Offering a unique dining concept, guests can choose to dine at the grill or unwind at the lounge, overlooking stunning views of the world’s tallest performing fountains way down below. The restaurant/grill has a capacity of 210 diners and holds this on a regular basis.
This might sound like a novelty venue just for its grand height and views, therefore you will dismiss it out of hand, it is NOT!… This is a true Fine Dinning experience with massif emphasis on food quality and Provence of ingredients.
Whether you’re a connoisseur of fine dining or simply wish to unwind and relax, At.Mosphere promises you an experience that you will not find anywhere else in the world. With the high tea cost and dinner cost based on a minimum “cost per table”, this deters the area being inundated with tourists wanting to bypass the charge of visiting the observation deck. This is more than acceptable due to the cost involved in servicing the restaurant.
Whilst you can appreciate the height of your location from the views near and far, to watch the wine glasses in their hanging rack and see them swaying a few millimetres gives you an idea of the flexibility of the tower in the wind.
There is also a private dining room available for parties, VIP’s or special occasions.
Day or Night this is a spectacular restaurant for its food alone, couple that with impeccable management, staff and views and you have a must visit venue for the discerning Dubai traveler.
1. If you’re on a budget book a table for High Tea or just drinks in the lounge (Minimum spend applies) but its well worth it.
2.If you have a head for heights look down the gap between the elevator cab and the shaft, you can see all the way down to the ground floor!
