Sky Dining In Your City

Post pictures and information of revolving restaurants, rooftop bars, and other dining establishments up in the sky in your city.


In Nashville, we have the Virago which is a rooftop sushi bar on top of an apartment loft building.







Virago

I'll post some more in Nashville later on

I was at the sky bar recently, we had a corporate presentation and celebration there. It was covered with some kind of transparent material though, because it's too cold these days. Got drunk out of my mind.

But we have plenty of rooftop and penthouse restaurants and bars in the city.

No sky dining that I know of in Tilburg.

However, there is a good restaurant at an observation tower in a nearby city



.



I have a year pass that allows me to climb the observation tower, sometimes I eat there as well, it's a nice place to sit and enjoy the sunset over the river and the harbor.

These all look like wonderful places to eat, guys.

This is my crappy picture from last year, when I dined at the top of the Prudential Tower in Boston. It is the second tallest skyscraper in the city.


It actually looks like this, picture from the internet:

They had a temporary one when Westpoint was nearing completion. It was all booked up, but that's mainly because everyone knew it was temporary.

Unfortunately, there are only a few options in Rotterdam. I can only think of the Euromast.

The Brasserie at Euromast is quite nice. A tad overpriced, but the food quality is very good.

Are skybars and restaurants not as popular in Europe?

probably more preference for cosy or medieval city settings, rather than modern urban.

Probably not, there aren't as many tall buildings for one thing.

Here's one I know of in Manchester though, the Cloud 23 bar.
