London In The Sky: Dine on a table suspended 25 metres above London
A pop-up restaurant suspended 25 meters above the ground is coming to Tower Bridge in September, hoping to compete with the likes of The Shard and the Walkie Talkie in the scenic views game.
The restaurant comprises a single table hoisted into the air, which can seat 22 guests a time. Diners will be securely fastened into their seats before the platform is raised from the ground and their meal served.
The food is also set to be pretty impressive, with a line-up of top chefs taking it in turns to provide the sky-high dishes. These include Tom Aikens, Ceviche’s Martin Morales, Chantelle Nicholson of Tredwell’s and Duck & Waffle’s Dan Doherty. The latter is used to heights, cheffing at London’s tallest restaurant.
London In The Sky will run from September 17 until the 30, serving breakfasts, lunches, dinners and special Champagne flights in association with Taittinger. It follows a similar pop-up in Canary Wharf last year, but promises better views this time round thanks to its new location.
But before you get too excited, be aware that the prices are almost as high as the seats. Breakfasts will cost £50, lunches £125, dinners £200 and the Champagne flights £75.
Bookings will be available online from July 17, when further menu details will also be announced.
