While Kyiv is known for its sky high restaurants, thrill seekers can now discover aerial dining in a whole new way. Dinner in the Sky straps 22 guests on to a platform which raises 180 feet (50 meters) above the ground.
The attraction began in Belgium in 2007 and has since expanded to 44 countries. Earlier this week, Ukrainian celebrities were invited to experience its first launch in Kyiv near Golosiivskiy Park.
"We chose this location because it’s important to bring the platform somewhere near parks to have the best view. Well, I’m happy that we finally did it – it took more than a year for us to make Ukrainian skies open for this. Ukrainians are very conservative, and they didn’t catch the idea at once," said Alyona Zhebrovskaya, head of WinWinGroup.
A huge crane lifts the platform up into the air. Drinks are served by two waiters while a single chef starts preparing meals. Make sure to use the restroom first as the flying restaurant doesn’t come equipped with one.
The company also provides additional events on the platform such as Marriage in the Sky, Lounge in the Sky, and Showbizz in the Sky. They’ve even done casinos, concerts, corporate meetings, and press conferences.
