For people who love the thrill of dining out, Dinner in the Sky is hard to trump, by virtue of its towering magnitude. So if you’re looking to titillate your senses, tucking in to a meal high above ground will appeal to your thrill-seeking foodie nature.
Here’s the deal: as its name suggests, Dinner in the Sky is an airborne concept. In fact, you step not into, but onto your dining room; a giant floating platform hoisted by a crane a whopping 50 metres above ground (about the height of 9- or 10-storey building).
The kitchen, manned by 5 standing staff—1 supervisor, 1 chef, 2 waiters and 1 photographer—acts as the centrepiece, while a maximum of 22 guests make up the merry table border. They are belted into comfortable, ergonomic chairs that can swivel out 180° from the table, allowing guests to enjoy breath-taking vistas and the thrill of dangling their feet high in the sky, mid-air.
This dining concept already exists in cities worldwide, and for the first time it will be coming to Montréal’s Old Port from May 30 to June 7. Diners will be able to enjoy a full course meal and wine pairings while soaking up the stunning views of the city skyline and the sparkling St. Lawrence River.
If you’re celebrating a special event with friends or want to wow some VIPs, this airborne eating concept might be just the ticket to some very successful entertaining.
