When in Brussels dine at 150 feet with Dinner in the Sky
Do you have the stomach to stomach food on a seven-ton platform restaurant that’s suspended in air almost 160 feet above the ground? Acrophobics and vertigo sufferers take my advice n drop the idea when you’re touring Brussels. Bungee jumping, sky diving and swimming with sharks is passé. Try extreme dining instead. 22 diners get the chance to enjoy gourmet food and champagne while suspended near sites such as the Royal Palace, the famed Atomium or the Cambre forest. Dinner in the sky is brought to you by the combined efforts of Kerkhofs with marketing executive David Ghelys. Together they are flooring (or the literal opposite) people around the world with their unique, high in the skies dining experience. Kerkhofs has designed and built 40 platforms and charges up to 250 euros ($310) a head for the experience, with Las Vegas, Barcelona, Paris, Monaco and Tokyo all popular destinations.
Not only do they take special care of your taste buds and ambience but also your safety. Diners are carefully strapped into seats similar to those seen on roller coasters. The event dubbed Brusselicious 2012, a gastronomic fair can be attended by all in Brussels this month.
