Floating restaurant to visit Glasgow in 2017

Five Glasgow restaurants will serve their menus 100 feet in the air above George Square when unique daredevil dining experience, Glasgow in the Sky, makes its debut in June 2017.

The pop-up from Events in the Sky will see restaurants, including award-winning Thai restaurant Chaophraya, transfer their menus to a unique “sky table”  suspended 100 feet high by a mobile crane.

The sky table will seat 22 guests at a time, with a head chef, sommelier and waiting team serving dishes from a pop-up kitchen in its centre.

The stunt taking the city’s food and drinks scene to new heights is part of Events in the Sky’s first UK tour. Following its success in London, where the first public event in the UK was launched in 2014, next year will see the specialised events company take its unusual dining concept to five cities, including Glasgow for the first time.

Dale Agar of Events in the Sky said, “With the success of London in the Sky, we’re looking forward to visiting Glasgow in 2017 to recreate this converted event partnering with Glasgow’s best chefs and restaurants.

“Guests will enjoy a breathtaking dining experience with spectacular views of the city from a different angle.”

Tickets are now on sale for the restaurant;s four-day run from 15-18 June. There will be nine sittings per day, including breakfast (£50), lunch (£125), dinner (£150), afternoon drinks (£75) and evening drinks (£75).

Chaophraya is the only restaurant confirmed to take part. The full line-up will be announced in February 2017.
