    Fancy a dinner in the sky? , this will have a bad ending.

    Fancy a dinner in the sky?




    Fancy a dinner in the sky?
    The world’s only suspended dinner table is coming to the Big Mango. Tickets for the two months of pop-up dinners go on sale tonight and have been known to completely sell out in 48 hours.
    At a press conference in Bangkok today, we learned that Dinner in the Sky — a moving attraction that hoists a platform of 22 diners, a chef, and two waitstaff into the sky to eat dinner twice per night in cities around the world — arrives in Bangkok on Dec. 20 and should serve two meals per night through February (the exact final date has not yet been announced).
    At the press conference they announced that the “flights” will take off next to Emporium mall, where a lounge is being constructed so guests can meet, mingle, and have cocktails before their sky meal.



    The lounge is also where the toilets are. That’s right, once you get hoisted 50 meters into the sky by a 200 ton crane, there are no bathrooms. Before the event, announcements chime every 15 minutes in the lounge reminding guests to use the bathroom before their flight.
    The 4-course meals only last an hour, however, so most people can make it. Don’t worry, if someone really has to go or the weather gets bad, they can lower the platform. The trip up and down takes about 5 minutes and diners wear four-point seatbelts that resemble what is worn on a roller coaster.



    The food for the Bangkok engagement is being created by Chef Gaetano Palumbo of the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit. Guests can bring their phone or cameras to photograph the spectacular event, but other personal items should be locked in lockers in the lounge.

    To reassure those concerned with safety, DITS has operated for over 10 years in 45 countries and they’ve never had an accident or injury. The crane and platform, created in Belgium, moves around the world for different engagements. Though the Sukhumvit run is the first in Thailand and only the second in Southeast Asia (Kuala Lumpur was the first), organizers told Coconuts that they are already considering runs in other parts of Thailand, including Phuket, and perhaps a future run in Bangkok by the riverside.

    Since flights are scheduled for 6 and 7:30pm daily, guests will either get a sunset view or one of the sparkling city by night. Tickets cost THB4,990 on weekdays and THB5,390 on weekends, exclusive of alcohol but inclusive of free UBER rides to and from the venue. There are three kinds of meats diners can choose from as well as avegetarian option. Tickets must be booked in advance at the Dinner in the Sky website.

    Wow, this could really be the next best thing for the depressed balcony leapers of Pattaya.

    Book a seat, have a drink, rise into the sky, a decent meal and then off you go.................................

    Satiated, satisfied, sad but dead.

    Food and drinks should be delivered by drone for that truly solo suspended dining experience.

    My thoughts exactly, I'd be keen to try it out. I'll be annoyed if the food at Sizzlerz is better!

    Eat before you fly, that sort of gimmick charges for the experience not the food.

    ^or for someone with a large social media presence. I can imagine that someone who thrives on "likes, retweets & followers" would try this.

    Good thing we have our very own Punty! Punty, we're counting on you to make this review, as Danny Boy is not around.

    One advantage would be the food all arriving together instead of a dish every 10mins like many places.

    I'd imagine the place is booked up by now.

    ...possibly...and also soon to go the way of dining-in-the-dark and menuless restaurants: folks with too much time and money looking for distractions...

    Do they do lsaan food? somtam? Chang beer with a cooler? Proper english sausages (not hot dogs) or a real cup of tea ( PG tips not that piss weak Liptons brand)

    What if an english bloke turns up with his Gf? They'll be fucked! The brit will of course complain and put it on thaivisa..

    Organisers clearly haven't done their homework. Shame on them.

    With a nice wind you should be able to piss on them or blind the fuckers with a green laser from a high room in Emporium suites. In fact you can stay a night there for the price of that dinner

    Well your up there in the sky and tucking into your filet steak and Down comes the heavy rain together with a cross wind,the chef and servers rush to one end to catch the food as everyone jumps up onto the table to shelter from the heavy rain. The table tilts and one by one they are all history.
