London’s open-air restaurant returns for 2017
A fear of heights isn’t normally something that would influence your restaurant choice but suspended 100 feet in the air, London in the Sky is a bit of an exception.
Returning for its third year in July 2017, London in the Sky will feature a new location and line-up of chefs.
The restaurant will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as afternoon and evening drink flights for guests looking to enjoy the very best food and drink London has to offer, as well as a unique dining experience.
The table seats 22 guests, and guests will watch their food being prepared and served by some of London’s finest chefs in the pop-up kitchen located in the centre of the table whilst up in the sky. Guests are securely strapped in before the platform is raised from the ground, by a mobile crane.
There will be nine sittings per day and guests have the choice of breakfast (£50), lunch (£125), dinner (£150 for the early flight and £200 for the sunset flight including Champagne reception), afternoon drinks (£75) or late evening drinks (£75).
The full line-up will be announced in February 2017 but so far, the confirmed line-up of chefs includes Michael Reid (M Restaurants), Jeremy Page (L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon) and Calum Franklin (Holborn Dining Room). Each of the restaurants will serve guests a menu of signature dishes during the twelve-day festival.
Holborn Dining Room Head Executive Chef, Calum Franklin states: “This is the second year I will be cooking from 100 feet in the air as Holborn Dining Room returns to London in the Sky. What better way to showcase our seasonal and locally sourced British brasserie than with this unique experience overlooking London.”
Dale Agar of Events in the Sky says of the event: “We’re looking forward to London in the Sky 2017 which will have another stellar line-up of the Capital’s best chefs and restaurants who will transfer their menu’s to our unique sky table. Guests will enjoy a breathtaking dining experience with spectacular views up and down the Thames.”
In addition to London, events will be hosted in Glasgow, Newcastle, Bristol and Southampton during the summer of 2017.
