The world’s tallest building is now the site of the world’s highest restaurant above the ground. A fine dining establishment called At.mosphere has opened on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai at a height of 1,350 feet.

The eatery is just three feet lower to the ground than the observation deck of the Willis Tower in Chicago, but perhaps more astonishing is that it is not even half way up the 2,717-foot tower, leaving open the possibility that its claim to fame will be short-lived.

The previous record holder was the 360 restaurant in the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada, which is situated at a height of 1,151 feet.

The food at At.mosphere is described by its owners as eclectic European, and the menu has prices to match the restaurant’s lofty perch. A cup of coffee costs $8.
