Until recently, visitors could take in the sights of the city from the rotating viewing platform, positioned 165 metres up the tower. Now, an outdoor cafe has been opened some 15 above the rotating platform.

The cafe currently allows 10 people to dine and enjoy the view under good weather conditions.
