The Park Harbour at the entrance of the rooftop is meant to make you forget that you are on the 18th floor, and instead, makes you feel like youre near a waterfall with the fountain running through the middle. The Chilly Tale is the garden patio that covers the perimeters of the entire restaurant. It can accommodate up to 100 green loungers. In fact, it is reputed to be the best seat in the house, as it oversees the city. You can even catch the sunset from Chilly Tale. Lime Land is curtained by rich green plants and a fun fact about the Lime Land is that it is the only spot in the building that will give you an uninterrupted view of the Ramna Park. The Gozari Valley is set apart from the rest of the dining sections with an over-hanging balcony with walls made of actual Gozari wood. The Water-Lux provides a luxury setting for special occasions like exclusive corporate meetings and also intimate family gatherings, and it can hold a capacity of 24 guests. While the Chilly Tale is the best seat in the house for its amazing view, the Sky Deck can give you a more intimate experience as it hides away from the rest of the sections. And lastly, if you want a combined experience of indoors and outdoors, there is the Telescope section with a moon roof, a wonderful way to experience the rain.
