      If you haven’t had the chance to enjoy a meal while taking in panoramic views of downtown Vancouver 42 floors up, you now have one last chance.

      The iconic Cloud 9 Revolving Restaurant inside Empire Landmark Hotel (1400 Robson Street) will be ending its operations on September 30, 2017.

      Its culinary creations include dishes such as seafood, steaks, pasta, salads, and weekly dessert features. 

      A special closing dinner menu will be offered in September—guests can indulge in a six course ($120 per person, plus taxes and gratuity) accompanied by 360 degree views of the city.

      The West End standalone hotel tower (the tallest in the city) will be demolished to make way for two residential buildings, which will offer 237 market condos and 63 social housing units.

      Empire Landmark Hotel was built in 1973, originally known as the Sheraton Landmark. It changed to its current name in 1997, and is owned by Hong Kong-based property company Asia Standard International Group. 

      The closure of this dining establishment will leave Vancouver with only one revolving restaurant—the Top of Vancouver at Harbour Centre (555 West Hastings Street). It is still in business and also offers views of West Coast mountains and the ocean.
