Hopewell Building has a revolving restaurant at the top of the building. Patrons or tourists can ride a scenic elevator along the side of the building to get to the restaurant.

The BT Tower in London used to have a revolving restaurant until an IRA bomb exploded in it in 1971 and it closed forever after that.

The World Trade Center in Bogota has one, so does the Dann Carlton Hotel in Medellín and the Capilla del Mar Hotel in Cartagena has a revolving bar.

Eating up there (on the CN tower) as a little kid is where i first got a passion for skyscrapers. The CN tower will always have a soft place in my heart.
