Filled with Möet and Chandon, the 54,740-glasses-tall pyramid built by the Dubai hotel broke a Guinness World Record. In fact, it is the world’s largest drinking glass tower of 2022. The previous record-holder was a tower made of 50,116 glasses, erected in Madrid in 2017. It is certainly a creative way to welcome the New Year.
Travel + Leisure interviewed Timothy Kelly, the executive vice president and managing director of Atlantis Resorts and Residences, who said: “The champagne tower is traditionally a beacon of greatness and generosity, and we’d like to toast to a new year filled with both in abundance.”
Not only the number of the glasses is impressive, but also the dimensions: erected in a tent at the resort, it measured more than 27 feet high (approximately 8.2 metres). It took more than 55 man-hours to stack, and 5 days in total.
The official Guinness World Records adjudicator, Pravin Patel, stated: “It takes some considerable planning and organisation to pull off a feat of this magnitude … and it was a pleasure to witness such dedicated team at work.”
The last day of life of the Möet and Chandon glasses tower was 1 January, and the coupe glasses have since then been recycled into refillable glassware by a local glassblower. The guests of Atlantis, The Palm’s 1,548 rooms and suites will be using the new glasses.
