A revolving restaurant is a restaurant built upon a circular platform that revolves as patrons dine. The vast majority of revolving restaurants are located on towers, including the upper floors of hotels, skyscrapers, and TV towers. Revolving restaurants typically make one to three revolutions per hour, letting patrons enjoy a 360 degree view without getting up from their seats.

The first revolving restaurant was built atop the Florianturm, a TV tower in Dortmund, Germany, in 1959. Shortly after, Seattle architect John Graham designed the famous La Ronde revolving restaurant in the Ala Moana Center in Honolulu. After patenting the idea for a revolving restaurant, Graham build the "Eye of the Needle" restaurant that still operates on the top of the Space Needle in Seattle.
