A special team spent about five days (25th -31st December) delicately constructing a wine glass tower at Atlantis, The Palm, in Dubai. The pyramid featured a whopping 54,740 champagne glasses and stood over 8.23 metres (27 ft) tall.
The spectacle was organised by Moët & Chandon, as part of its ‘Effervescence’ event series with Guinness World Records officials also present to adjudicate. Luuk Broos Events (an events company based in the Netherlands) built the amazing pyramid that left invited UAE celebrities and VIPs startled. The guests were invited to sip champagne throughout the night on the sandy shores of WHITE Beach club as well as experience various scores of entertainment.
The event organizers admitted that over half of its team are actually real surgeons due to the level of focus required, especially for the last few metres.
The resort said the tower remained in place until 1 January, but that glasses used would be recycled and turned into glassware for Atlantis, The Palm’s which has 1,548 rooms and suites.
