For those who have an appetite for gravity-defying thrills and gourmet eats, you’ll want to check out this upcoming event in the city.
After a sold-out run last year, Dinner in the Sky Vancouver will be returning to the North Shore (415 West Esplanade) from June 23 through July 29 this summer.
It’s a unique dining experience that takes place 130 feet in the air, allowing food-lovers to dine in a sky-high setting accompanied by ocean, mountain, and city scenery.
This culinary attraction was acquired by local company Westcoast Sightseeing earlier this year, and they have recently announced that award-winning chef Ned Bell (Vancouver Aquarium and Chefs for Oceans) will be joining its team as chef ambassador.
Besides dinner options, brunch, lunch, and happy hour packages will be offered. We don’t know too much about what will be on the menus, but guests can expect locally inspired food and drink items; high quality ingredients and sustainable seafood is basically Bell’s mantra.
“I love getting people excited about food,” said Bell in a press statement. “And let’s face it, dining doesn’t get too much more exciting and enchanting than when enjoying delicious local dishes and wines while suspended high above this breathtaking view.”
As for the logistics, the maximum capacity for each lift is 22 guests. You’ll be securely strapped in a rotating and reclining seat to enjoy the most out of the 360-degree views.
If you’re wondering what to do if you suddenly have the urge to use the restroom in the middle of the meal, Dinner in the Sky has an answer for you on its website’s FAQ section: go before getting onto the platform.
Eight to 10 different dining experiences will be offered, with prices that range from $149 (happy hour in the sky) to $299 (brunch in the sky) to $569 (a VIP dinner in the sky package).
Word of mouth tells us that this one-of-a-kind foodie attraction is worth the dent in your wallet—if you’re keen to check it out, we suggest saving up for the next few weeks.
