“Dinner in the Sky” is an amazing dining experience combined with an exclusive environment, spectacular views, cuisine from renowned chefs, and all of this at up to 50 meters above the earth.
A crane lifts the table with 22 guests to a height of up to 50 meters above the earth.
When this event first began in the Czech Republic eleven years ago, many conventional gourmets were quite skeptical, suggesting that they don’t need to be hung somewhere in the air to enjoy delightful cuisine.
Dinner in the Sky first started when Belgian entrepreneurs David Ghysels and Stefan Kerkhofs devised this concept. It quickly expanded to many major cities across the world, including Prague, where it has been celebrated every September.
In its initial stages, Dinner in the Sky was set up in Kampa, before the crane and platform were relocated to Riegrovy sady. This year, it is returning to the historic center along Dvorák’s embankment where a team of professionals, with a guest chef and waiting team, will serve from the center of the table.
Compared to last year, the main change is the chef. After MasterChef juror Marek Raditsch, you can enjoy the creations of Pavel Býček, one of the key men of Prague’s Michelin-starred Alcron restaurant and head chef of his own restaurant The Eatery in Holešovice.
Býček will prepare a beetroot tartare with brynza and hazelnut dressing as an appetizer, followed by duck breast with foie gras, roasted pumpkin and chestnuts as the main course. Everything is rounded off by a pear cake dessert.
This year, the listed dates are from September 1 to 4 and from September 8 to 11, when several lunches and dinners are held every day.
Dinner in the sky is by no means a cheap affair. Lunch is the cheapest option – it costs 2,490 crowns per person including drinks. On the other hand, a romantic dinner at sunset costs 5,850 crowns per person.
Tickets are available for purchase on the official website.
