Ottawa diners to reach for the sky in 2017

Next year Canada will celebrate its 150th birthday in style with a vast programme of events taking place across the country. As the capital city, Ottawa is set to be the main focus with 12 full months of big, bold, immersive and moving experiences that will complement national celebrations and annual events and festivals. The latest addition to the programme is a thrilling ‘Dinner in the Sky’ experience that will see diners hoisted 150 feet above the Ottawa skyline.

The sky high dining concept was launched in Brussels in 2006 and has since been featured in 55 other destinations including Paris, Las Vegas and Dubai. It works using amusement park technology that pulls a long 22-seat table into the air by crane, then guests are served dinner in the clouds by fearless waiters. Diners are strapped safely and firmly into their seats throughout and the entire contraption is covered by a canopy to protect against rain and even birds.

Ottawa’s Sky Lounge will be located in the city’s downtown core and will be operated by the Québec-based company Dîner Entre Ciel et Terre. Guests will get to enjoy unparalleled views of the capital, including stunning vistas of the Ottawa River, Parliament Buildings and historic Rideau Canal.  There will be multiple sittings on offer over the course of a week in August 2017, with five dinners and six tapas-cocktail events every day.

The Ottawa 2017 organising committee has invited local restaurants to take part in the high flying, fine dining project, with more than 30 establishments having registered an interest. Location details and ticket information will be announced shortly with tickets expected to go on sale next month.
