Wait, I’ll settle for 180 feet up.

Seems like folks are always looking for new and unusual dining experiences. The Boston Globe ran an article today about Dinner in the Sky, a global dining concept (I really can’t think of any other way to describe it) that a few Boston-area entrepreneurs have brought to the U.S. They serve dinner-180 feet above the ground.

Here’s how it works.

You and your dining companions are seated around a table, with an aisle in the center for waitstaff. Using a crane, they hoist you and your dining companions 180 feet up in the air, where you enjoy your dinner.

Um.

This is really interesting and strange at first, until I hit the company’s website, where one of the first images I see is a group of diners suspended over a parking lot in Vegas. Luckily, a deeper dive into the site reveals diners dangling over all sorts of lovely locations, including Monaco and other dazzling scenery.

Here’s a sample of what that might be like. This video isn’t in English, but I’m not sure you need any kind of voiceover to see what these guys are up to.

According to the company’s website, tables seat up to 22 people with room for up to 3 chefs in the center aisle. There’s a height requirement for safety, and you can opt to have your table heated, lit, or customized with sound or tv screens.

Care to dangle and dine? Check it out for yourself here.

  1. Just watching this video made me nauseous. I would surely hurl up my dinner before I even got to dessert. I wouldn't want to be standing under the table either. LOL!
  2. Heh. Yeah, that's kind of where I landed as well. I mean, I get that it's a novelty, but it's also really kind of unnecessary. Here's what I got hung up on. Apparently, they make arrangements with a place on the ground to provide bathroom access. When you're up in the air, you raise your hand if you need to use the facilities, and they lower the table to let you off. I can only imagine that if you had a party of like, 15 people, the table would spend the better part of the night going up...and down...and up...and down.
