To have dinner in the sky of Dubai is now possible

Posted: 16-Jan-17 10:15

Dubai is known throughout the world for innovation. One of its most innovative experiences is yet is set to begin this month, the gravity-defying Dinner in the Sky. Guests are harnessed into bucket seats and suspended 50 metres above the city and some of its most famous attractions. Visitors can choose lunch, brunch, or dinner, all while suspended from a crane.

To have dinner in the sky of Dubai is now possible

In the twenty to thirty years since its transformation from a cluster of small fishing villages into a metropolis and major tourist destination, Dubai has routinely shocked the world with its building projects, which often defy the laws of nature. The city’s newest innovation is a meal in the sky—a dining opportunity that will have guests literally suspended in the air by a crane.

Available for a short time during the festive season, Dinner in the Sky will be offered within the Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection in Dubai. Guests will be taken 50 metres up and suspended by a crane overlooking the city.

The experience is open to only a small group of diners at a time, which will be secured in bucket seats. The wait staff and host will be secured by safety harnesses. The airborne dining experience will be available three times daily—for lunch, brunch, and dinner, served from 11AM to midnight.

Although this kind of gravity-defying idea might sound like something that only Dubai could do, the concept is not a new one; it was introduced 10 years ago in Belgium and Germany and since then, the idea has been adopted in more than 40 other countries. In 2013, the UAE experienced dining in the sky when Abu Dhabi hosted a one-night only experience. Similar Dinner in the Sky experiences have been offered in London, New York, and Paris.

On a clear day, thrill-seeking diners can take in birds’ eye views of the Burj Khalifa and Atlantis The Palm, all while enjoying upbeat music in an intimate setting. The experience is open to 22 guests at a time, and the meal is prepared in front of them, suspended in the air.

While it may seem that only daredevils would attempt Dinner in the Sky, the experience is actually quite safe. It boasts a 100 percent safety record, and has been extensively tested. With guests harnessed and strapped in, there isn’t much danger of a fall. The most likely danger for high-altitude diners is feeling a bit chilly because of the cooler temperatures at that elevation. So hungry thrill-seekers should buy a ticket and prepare to take in incredible views of the city over a well-prepared meal.
