The Empire State Building, London’s Shard, and Sydney Tower all have enormous lineups to visit the tops of big skyscrapers.
That’s why combining a cloud-level gaze at a sprawling cityscape with meals makes sense. Many of these higher locations, thankfully, have sky-high restaurants.
Here are top 5 skyscraper dining restaurants in the world
1. Duck and Waffle, London
The highest restaurant in London is also one of the greatest. Duck and Waffle serves an all-day menu of shared plates and is open 24 hours a day, 230 metres above street level. The best city views are from window tables on the west or south sides.
2. Horizon Grill / Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
This magnificent venue, located in the beautiful Banyan Tree hotel, offers both a world-class grill and a high-end bar, both with views of the city and the Petronas Twin Towers.
Horizon Grill is a fine-dining establishment with an open-air terrace, a peaceful ambiance, stylish furniture, and a distinct style. Horizon Grill gives the sensation of being in an urban oasis in the sky, with its own tiny river and loads of beautiful flora.
3. Asmani Restaurant / Antalya, Turkey
In Ottoman language, Asmani means “a place that belongs to the sky, moon, and sun,” which perfectly describes the 10th-floor setting. With a gentle and natural decor that includes sophisticated dining tables, attractive lights, fire pits, and water features, you’ll be surrounded by breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and the skyline.
4. Tomo / Dubai, UAE
Tomo is one of Dubai’s greatest Japanese restaurants, serving both as a restaurant and a bar with stunning views of the city’s new skyline.
This rooftop location, which is located on the 17th level of the world-famous Raffles Hotel, offers both indoor and outdoor dining, delectable cuisine, and expertly crafted cocktails.
5. RedSky / Bangkok, Thailand
This rooftop bar, located on one of Bangkok’s busiest streets and only steps from world-famous shopping malls like the Siam Paragon, the MBK, and the Central World, is the ideal place to unwind after a day of shopping.
