Dubai given highest restaurant world record

Dubai continues to be one of the world's up and coming areas with news that the emirate now has the globe's highest restaurant.At.mosphere has been officially given the title of Highest Restaurant from Ground Level by Guinness World Records officials, adding to the many other titles it already has.The Burj Khalifa already has the record for the world's Tallest Building and Tallest Man-Made Structure Ever, but the restaurant adds to this tally by being situated on the 122nd floor of this building - or 442 metres from the ground, the Khaleej Times reports.Talal Omar, adjudication manager of Guinness World Records, told the news provider that organisers are "very excited" to receive the application."We knew about the highest restaurant in terms of geographic location but not from the ground level. We had asked (Emaar-Dubai) for evidence including location, its height, seating capacity. Our researchers looked into it and noted it," he added.It comes as the emirate comes closer to getting 4G technology as data traffic growth continues.
