Dinner at a real distance!

Published: Oct 2020

Diners in Brussels, Belgium have been experiencing eating whilst 50 metres up in the sky. Dinner in the Sky was launched in 2006 and is now rolled out across 60 different countries. It involves those with a strong stomach and no fear of heights being strapped in and hoisted up at a table suspended from a crane! Chefs prepare their meals and serve them from the centre of the suspended table.

For socially distanced Belgians looking for a different culinary experience, the Dinner in the Sky Brussels installation will once again enable them to to dine 50 metres (164 feet) above the ground as the dining-in-the-sky experience returns from COVID-19 lockdown with a new, socially distanced feel.

To protect diners with social distancing, patrons will now reserve four-person private tables that are spaced apart. “It means all the public are sitting in sort of a bubble,” said co-CEO Stefan Kerkhof to Reuters. There are three options to take part in this luxury Brussels bubble – lunch, dinner or weekend daytime cocktails. Something to consider for any bored Belgians looking to head out for the evening, providing you’re not struggling with vertigo of course!
