Vote: Is Dining in the Sky the Next Big Thing?

By Abbey Tiderman 01.29.2017 blog


Do you love going out to eat? How about up to eat? A unique restaurant concept has been doing just that for the past decade, taking diners to great heights—150 above the ground to be exact.

This ultimate open-air concept began in Belgium and has since spread to 40 countries. A 200-foot crane hoists a platform complete with sky chefs and seating for a couple dozen guests up into the air. It’s a fine dining experience featuring incredible views, and elevated menus with high-quality ingredients. At Dinner in the Sky in Vancouver, you can choose from two- to five-course packages starting at $296 for lunch. Want “The Ultimate Experience?” That VIP dinner will cost you $919.

A word of warning though. There’s no bathroom up there, so you’ll need to take care of business before you board the platform. But if you really “gotta go” during dinner, they can get you down to the ground in just one minute.

Needless to say, if you’ve got acrophobia—fear of heights—this might not be your idea of a good time. But if you like to live on the edge and are at least four foot three inches tall, you can take to the sky for beautiful scenery and fantastic food. Ready to grab your fork and fly high?

    Dining in the Sky is not the Next Big Thing because it is dangerous. Someone could be secured incorrectly, could fall off, and get hurt.

  4. Adara Bunn

    I say yes and no because if you drop your siverware you better be jumping to get it and yes because it would be an awesome experience

    I think that dining in the sky isn’t the next big thing because of many people’s fears of heights, and the risk of dropping something expensive or at all.

    No, because to dine in the sky it costs a lot of money!! Also how do you go to the bathroom? And this would be scary for people afraid of heights!
