Ok so no big deal, for you (99.99999%) guys who don't know what L'astral is, it's a restaurant, on the top of l'Hotel Concorde in Quebec city, it's not the greatest in terms of food but I love the view!

So you might say this view sucks, and it would be true, that building is ugly..

but a few minutes later

Takes about 90mins to do a complete rotation, it's very nice, only a "ring" spins, the exterior and very interior (toilets, main entrance, place where they cook, buffet) don't.

It had been quite a long time since I went there
 
We have one of those nearby, on a small town. I think it's disabled now, though. But the view is a little worse :lol:
 
rotatings restaurants are so old my friend
 
we have one in HK, a good idea but i dont find it that interesting, coz its too slow lol. wonder if someone is so worthless they got sick on it lol
 
Reminds me of Sam and Max: Hit the road. That was a great game...

there was supposed to be a rotating restaurant in beijing as well... but according to my dad, there was some mis-communication between the workers and they decided to pour cement down the shaft that spins it or something so now that thing doesn't rotate :lol:
 
I personally like the one in the Space Needle in Seattle. IIRC the food is amazing (albeit expensive) but the views are amazing, especially when you can see Mt. Rainer. I don't know if it rotates or not, but the views from the restaurant are amazing (especially on one of the rare clear days in Seattle).

^Ugly tower! But nice mountain in the background :D

I dunno, I like the architecture of the tower, but the mountain in the background is Mt. Rainer, which is situated in a very nice national park. I'd like to go back out there some day (hopefully for a job :-D)
 
keep in mind the space needle was made for a worlds fair back in 1962 thats why it has what is now a retro sci-fi look
