Fabulous views of Tirana and the surrounding mountains and because the bar revolves about once per hour you can sit and watch it pass by. Nice atmosphere, a healthy mix of tourists and locals. Great beer too. But the views, seriously fantastic, you've got to go if you're in Tirana.

Only came up for a drink and the views. Once there it was apparent that there was no other choice. No bar snacks available, not even a bowl of nuts. Had a couple of drinks just to take in the 360' views so ticked the box. Bar could have allot of potential but it's a bit tatty at the moment.... More

Enjoyed the views over the city from the warm rotating restaurant. Free access. Had only a dessert with a soft drink; crème brûlée was absolutely the worst we've ever had; extremely dense and heavy, caramelized also poorly.

The bar is the revolving part of the Sky Tower, two pre dinner drinks are just enough to get 360 degrees, fantastic after dark views! The restaurant below, although not at all busy had great food and excellent service with very attentive and helpful waiters. Great restaurant.

I first visited the Sky Tower 10 years ago, mainly for the novelty of the revolving bar on the top floor (still going - visit at sunset for a spectacular panoramic view of the city) but have returned several times for the (non-revolving) restaurant on the floor below. Fresh salads, a good choice of pasta, meat and fish dishes coupled... More

A friend recommended this place, and I'm glad he did as it doesn't feature much in guide books. It's a good place to familiarise yourself with Tiranë's geography while having a few drinks. An entire revolution takes almost exactly an hour. Prices are pretty good, especially for cocktails. And my friend asked for an Irish coffee, which wasn't on the... More

Highly recommend the bar/restaurant at the top as a break from the Tirana heat. There is an elevator in the back-right of the lobby that will take you to the top and then turn left for a short staircase. - great 360 view of the city, and the bar rotates so you can just sit still and see everything -...
