In Dubai, patrons began sitting down to dinner Sunday at the world’s highest restaurant, just opened on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower.

The luxury lounge and grill – appropriately named At.mosphere – is surrounded by glass walls, offering diners a spectacular panoramic view of the city and surrounding areas.

The picture-perfect scenery doesn’t come cheap; a reservation will run you at least $122 a head. A private dining area is available for $176.90 per guest. And if you’re just feeling parched, afternoon tea is a mere $100.

Located just over 1,300 feet in the air, At.mosphere sits more than 300 feet higher than the world’s second-highest restaurant located inside Toronto’s CN Tower.
