Revolving Restaurants in Europe!

Jump to last reply

Coucou, mon amis!

I was wondering if Fodorites knew of any revolving restaurants in Europe.

The only one I know of is Piz Gloria at the Schilthorn, CH.

I would surmise that operating a revolving restaurant would be difficult.

The expense must be exorbitant. The electric bill alone would be prohibitive to any restauranteur.

I also think proper training of staff would be another expense because you wouldn't want some shambolic waiter setting fire to a tablecloth because he lost his balance during a cherries jubilee pyrotechnic performance.

And a salad bar smack dab in the middle of the dining room would be ruled out (cutting profits because salad bars bring in crowds) as you would have customers suffering vertigo episodes whilst spooning out Currywurst Surprise onto their plates.

Yes, a revolving restaurant would be a very challenging venture indeed.

Maybe that is why we don't see so many nowadays.
