We decided to skip the lines and made a reservation at 5:30pm for cocktails at The Atmosphere Lounge. There is a minimum spend but that wasn’t a problem since cocktails were outstanding. Some of the best cocktails ever! They also have apps and dinner options in the lounge. This is more affordable than going for dinner which is on the same floor! We also learned if you sit at the bar you don’t have a minimum spend but it is on a first come, first serve basis. It opens at 5:30 so perfect for sunset. Another tip is that the woman’s bathroom has an amazing view and I was able to take photos of the water fountain show below. I highly recommend The Atmoshere Lounge as a great option to experience the highest building in the world.
