A Dubai hotel broke the world record for the tallest drinking glass tower, with a pyramid made up of 54,740 glasses of Moët & Chandon champagne.
The champagne glass tower, built by Atlantis, The Palm hotel, broke the record previously held by the makers of a tower consisting of 50,116 glasses of champagne in Madrid in 2017.
“The Champagne Tower has traditionally been a beacon of greatness and bounty, and we’d love to toast a New Year filled with both in abundance,” said Timothy Kelly, Executive Vice President and Director of Atlantis Resorts and Residences. Travel + Leisure.
Standing over 27 feet tall, the tower required more than 55 hours of work over five days.
The champagne glass tower was removed from the exhibit on January 1, after which the glasses were recycled by a local glassblower. The new glasses will be used to serve guests of the Atlantis hotel.
