Atmosphere, on the 122nd floor, is one private elevator ride up the glass and chrome Burj Khalifa. Its designers say that Atmosphere, touted as the world's highest restaurant, shows that Dubai may have lost its luster as a business hub after the financial crisis, but for those seeking the lifestyle of the rich and famous, it can still dish it out. "Up here, you feel elegant and luxurious, you feel sexy," said the restaurant's designer, Adam Tihany, pointing to the mahogany-paneled rooms and cozy leather booths. "You are floating ... it's a journey. This is your luxury yacht in the sky," he said. Atmosphere is a 57-second elevator ride up 442 meters (1,350 feet) that makes ears pop. Dwayne Cheer, the executive chef, tries to limit the number of times he goes up each day. "I came up yesterday five times and after five times, you feel a bit dizzy. You only want to come up twice." Cheer recommends the house specialties of foie gras or the beef tartare--but prices here may burn the pocket books of all but Dubai's most well-heeled denizens.[/quote] [media]http://d.yimg.com/a/p/rids/20110124/i/r2606090711.jpg[/media][media]http://d.yimg.com/a/p/afp/20110123/capt.photo_1295810645118-1-0.jpg[/media] [media]http://d.yimg.com/a/p/rids/20110123/i/r21656114.jpg[/media] [media]http://d.yimg.com/a/p/ap/20110123/capt.73a26a97a4c64c33b7c690363eb7147a-73a26a97a4c64c33b7c690363eb7147a-0.jpg[/media] [media]http://d.yimg.com/a/p/ap/20110123/capt.dd4709687509476694a93b6353f92fcf-dd4709687509476694a93b6353f92fcf-0.jpg[/media] [media]http://d.yimg.com/a/p/ap/20110123/capt.9c26b5e2dc564e4f85afb2975deaba85-9c26b5e2dc564e4f85afb2975deaba85-0.jpg[/media] For me, this place seems better for getting food [B][I]out[/I][/B] of me rather than in me.
Dubai will lead the space race when we tell them to build a hotel on fucking Titan.

Then someone should make the lowest restaurant in the world
I'm already pretty high.
Slave city
i was at dubai in december the skyscraper is really high my back was hurt a whole day because i was leaning backwards too much
High restaurants are just worthless if they don't spin Dubai can't do anything right
I've eaten higher, e.g At the summit of a mountain.
I'm gonna build a restaurant in hell so I beat the lowest restaurant record. [editline]24th January 2011[/editline] First I need to kill someone to go to hell. Who's up for that?
I would lose my appetite as soon as I glanced out the window.
The UAE will begin it's space program by mounting a trampoline on the roof of that building.
Food must've tasted [i]euphoric[/i] [editline]24th January 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=BCell;27628975]Then someone should make the lowest restaurant in the world[/QUOTE] Underground huh?
Pity I can't go due to my fear of heights.
[QUOTE=Sobotnik;27633072]Pity I can't go due to my fear of heights.[/QUOTE] you know they say you gotta face your fears
I thought it meant high as in drugs.
That's nice and all, But it's Dubai. I'll never visit because I value not being locked in a cell
Doesn't the ISS have some sort of restaurant/cafeteria. :smug:
[QUOTE=TheTalon;27636117]That's nice and all, But it's Dubai. I'll never visit because I value not being locked in a cell[/QUOTE] I'd rather not be sent to prison for bringing a copy of Caddy Shack into the country.
Such a shame that such a luxurious piece of architecture is planted dead center in a nation overrun with extremists of an incredibly violent religion.
Can that table get any smaller?
[QUOTE=SweetSwifter;27636161]Doesn't the ISS have some sort of restaurant/cafeteria. :smug:[/QUOTE] Well the ISS is in space. We're talking about the highest restaurant on EARTH, as in, in our atmosphere.

They can get a sort of high off the food.
[QUOTE=aliendrone123;27636456]Well the ISS is in space. We're talking about the highest restaurant on EARTH, as in, in our atmosphere.[/QUOTE] the iss is still within earth's atmosphere, although where it is is very, very, very thin. but it's thick enough to create enough drag that the ISS needs to make course corrections every so often
[QUOTE=TheTalon;27636117]That's nice and all, But it's Dubai. I'll never visit because I value not being locked in a cell[/QUOTE] If you have money in Dubai you can do pretty much whatever you want. Just don't acknowledge the serfs and you'll be fine. I dislike UAE fyi
Expected this to be in Amsterdam, was pleasantly surprised.
[QUOTE=mm3guy;27638729]the iss is still within earth's atmosphere, although where it is is very, very, very thin. but it's thick enough to create enough drag that the ISS needs to make course corrections every so often[/QUOTE] LEO still qualifies as space I'm pretty sure.
