Would recommend booking dinner or lunch as the views are great from the revolving restaurant. But check that the lift is working on the day , otherwise not sure it's worth the climb. Menu is limited but functional for lunch. Alcohol menu is good and...More

The idea is great, but the enactment is rather dull. I mean, almost every city has, or had, a revolving restaurant. When the Husky Tower was the tallest, newest building, it was exciting. But now that the tower is overshadowed by taller, more modern buildings,...More

I don't think you get free parking as you are only allowed about 20 to 30 minutes on the street outside but you have to pay to park
