If you’re not afraid of heights and prefer outdoor dining to fend off COVID-19, the “dinner in the sky” experience in Brussels might be for you. Dinner in the Sky has been set up in around 60 countries since its inception in 2006, and it’s pretty much exactly as advertised. Diners are strapped into seats at a table that’s suspended from a crane, while world-renowned chefs cook and serve from the middle. In Brussels, the experience takes place 164 feet above the ground, and it has just relaunched after previously closing due to COVID-19.
Brussels’ ‘Dinner in the Sky’ Is Back 164 Feet in the Air and Six Feet Apart
The original version sat 22 people together along the perimeter, but now 32 guests will be accommodated at four-person private tables that are spaced apart.
According to co-CEO Stefan Kerkhof, “It means all the public are sitting in a sort of bubble.” You can dine at this unique restaurant for lunch or dinner, with one lunch seating and two dinner seatings. It costs $350 per person for meals, and $175 for weekend cocktails.
Brussels is only the most recent home for Dinner in the Sky. The website states, “Dinner in the Sky has criss-crossed the skies […] In Europe, to be sure, but also in Australia, Japan, India, Dubaï, South-Africa, Brazil, United States, Mexico, Canada…and China.”
The Brussels event will end on October 4, but keep your eyes on the website to see if it’ll be heading to your city soon.
