Atmosphere Restaurant and Bar is situated on the roof of Kota Kinabalu & Sabah and is Borneo’s highest and only revolving restaurant.
About 15 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu city centre, Atmosphere is on the18th floor of Menara Tun Mustapha (formerly known as the Sabah Foundation Building).
Ironically, the décor is funky retro, and from the moment you step into the express elevators that lifts you towards Borneo’s only revolving restaurant, you know you’re in for something special.
As the elevator doors open, your are bombarded with yellow, orange, green and purple.
Depending on the time of day that you arrive at Atmosphere, you will either look out on the ever changing panorama of Kota Kinabalu and Sabah, rotating before your very eyes during the day, or the faint city lights twinkling in the distance during late evening.
Of course, being up on the 18th floor and revolving through 360 degrees once every hour, Atmosphere is the ideal place to enjoy lunch, sundowners or an early dinner.
With the most expensive item from the current menu being the Oven-roasted Australian Beef Tenderloin at RM90 and desserts for around RM10 for a selection of sorbets and ice-creams, a fine-dining dinner at Atmosphere will not break the bank.
And there’s no reason to leave after dinner, because Atmosphere’s Happy Hour is Kota Kinabalu’s most convenient and best priced.
From 9pm to midnight every day, a generous Happy Hour menu offers a selection of the best cocktails at the best prices in Kota Kinabalu and Sabah.
From around RM10 before taxes, a wicked Bloody Merry, a kau Long Island Ice Tea, or a sock-rocking Mai Tai is yours for the taking.
The Happy Hour menu also includes house-pouring spirits and wine, complemented by a choice of tidbits.
In addition to the restaurant experience that awaits at Atmosphere Restaurant and Bar in Kota Kinabalu, little treats like valet parking and free Wi-Fi makes the drive out worth while.
