We often talk about heavenly food, drinks that make you fly, or even a restaurant that makes you feel like you are in heaven. Well, now you can actually taste, drink and live breakfast, lunch or dinner in the sky! For years, Dinner in the Sky has gone around the world taking people to a very high experience. Based in Belgium, this novelty restaurant (namely one of the top 10 restaurants in the world, according to Forbes), has stablished in cities around the world bringing people closer to the heavens.
Although it is not new in Mexico, it is the first time it establishes itself in the Riviera Maya…and you’re in for a ride! If the views of our beautiful paradise with your feet on the ground so breathtaking, you can only imagine what they’re like 50 meters up in the air. In their original website, they talk about giving guests a one of a kind experience with total safety and exclusivity. Hosted by Events in the Sky, this event can be hosted anywhere, from beaches, to golf courses, to the middle of the street.
Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, or cocktails, Dinner in the Sky offers space for 22 people at a time. Part of the ritual is arriving early, getting a safety instruction talk, and then accommodating everyone around the table that will then be lifted into the sky 50 meters by a crane.
April 2015 marks the date of when Dinner in the Sky will officially open in the Riviera Maya, so start saving up because, yes, their packages are costly, but all for a good reason. The safety and technology systems, the staff, the crane, and the delicious food and astonishing view are all worth every penny you will invest.
