Dining in the sky 50 metres above the ground is set to provide a new high-altitude experience as “Dinner in The Sky” takes off in Bangkok starting from December 20.

Featuring the world’s only suspended dinner table, 22 guests are fixed securely in German TUV-approved safety harnesses, enjoying a four-course gourmet dinner prepared by Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit and accompanied by incredible city views above the Emporium and Dinosaur Planet – straight off BTS Phrom Phong.

Guests will be seated around a large dinner table with the entire Dinner In The Sky system suspended by a 200-tonne European telescopic boom crane. The experience promises front row seats to the most astonishing views the city has to offer, either at sunset or late on into the night sky. Free Uber riders to and from the experience are also arranged.

“Thailand has always been recognised as a leader in Asia for dining options of all kinds. But Dinner In The Sky is Thailand’s first high-end dinner table to be suspended and served at this altitude. This innovation encourages guests to take their eating experience to new heights,” said Friso Poldervaart of Dinner In The Sky Thailand.

Dinner In The Sky has operations in more than 45 countries including France, USA, Holland, Colombia, China, Macau, Denmark, Finland, Japan, Sweden, Taiwan, and Portugal.

“We have a catering team on site headed by executive chef Gaetano Palumbo who has designed a menu that perfectly complements the extraordinary high-altitude experience on first take-off,” added Robert Wittebrood, executive assistant manager of Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit.

Dinner in the Sky is designed according to German safety standard DIN 4112 regarding flying structures specifications, and has surpassed world-leading German TUV-accredited standards. Based in Kuala Lumpur, DITS ASIA chose Thailand to become the second Southeast Asian country after Malaysia in 2015. 

Seats are sold online at www.Dinnerinthesky.co.th for Bt4,990 on weekdays and Bt5,390 on weekends, inclusive of the four-course meal. There will be two flight sessions per day; sunset at 6pm and city lights at 7.30pm. The flight duration is 60 minutes.
