Tickets are now on sale for Glasgow in the Sky, which will see the city’s best restaurants transfer their menus and dining experiences to the unique sky table, suspended 100 feet in the air by a mobile crane.
The table seats 22 guests with head chef, sommelier and waiting team serving from the pop-up kitchen in the centre of the table whilst in the sky. Guests are securely fastened into their seats before the table is raised 100 feet and their gourmet experience begins.
The restaurant will run from the 15th to 18th June 2017 in George Square. With 9 sittings per day, guests have the choice of breakfast (£50), lunch (£125), dinner (£150), afternoon drinks (£75) and evening drinks (£75).
One of the restaurants that are already confirmed to take part is Chaophraya who were voted as Scotland’s best Asian Cuisine at the Scottish Entertainment Awards in 2015 and scooped the Best Oriental Establishment award at the Food Awards Scotland in 2014.
James Hacon, Brand Strategy Director of Thai Leisure Group, said "Surpassing customers’ expectations when it comes to product and service with bucket loads of passion and energy is what Chaophraya is all about. Our partnership with Events in the Sky, is certainly this - taking Thai to the next level. We are incredibly excited to take Chaophraya 100ft in to the sky in Glasgow next year for an unforgettable experience”.
The full line-up will be announced in February 2017. Each of these restaurants serves guests a menu of signature dishes during the four-day festival.
Dale Agar of Events in the Sky says of the event: ‘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.’
In addition to Glasgow, events will be hosted in London, Newcastle, Bristol and Southampton during the summer of 2017.
