Atmosphere in the Burj Khalifa will reopen on Thursday a representative from the restaurant told The National.

Bookings can now be made at the Dubai restaurant on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building (opt for a window table if you can, but expect a higher minimum spend).

The restaurant and lounge has been closed for around three months, and is reopening for all of its services. These are breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.

The only change is that the closing time is now 10pm.

Visiting the restaurant is a good alternative to paying for the observation deck of the tower. At reopening, the full afternoon tea (one main course, sandwiches, pastries, tea, coffee and two glasses of bubbly) costs Dh503 with a window table.

The minimum spend for a window table at dinner is Dh500 per person, or it's Dh300 per person for a non-window table. A five-course set menu for dinner costs Dh550.

Sheikh Hamdan at Atmosphere:

While the restaurant is a fine-dining experience, there's also a lounge, which is more casual, and cheaper: the minimum spend for a lounge window seat is Dh250 per person.

The team at Atmosphere tell us that menu prices have been slightly reduced since it was last open.

Bookings for the restaurant and lounge can be made by phoning 04 888 3828.

At The Top

The Burj Khalifa's At The Top viewing deck on the 124th and 125th floors have already reopened, with general admission from Dh99. You can book that experience here.

Health and safety measures at the Burj Khalifa include mandatory face masks and temperature checks and touchless sanitisation stations. You'll need to book online in order to go to the viewing deck and only contactless payments are available.

Earlier this month, The National's Reem Mohammed visited the viewing deck to capture its reopening, scroll through the gallery below to see her pictures:
