Enjoy brunch naked 100ft in the air (yes, really)

Although the title of this article might look like the result of a random headline generator, we can assure you that the chance to dine sans clothing while being suspended 100ft in the air is entirely true.

This summer, open-air restaurant concept London in the Sky will return to the capital for its ninth year, this time dangling its restaurant tables above The O2.

Offering jaw-dropping views of the city skyline, London in the Sky will see diners sat at tables suspended 100ft above the ground. Kicking off on 1 May and running until 15 July, guests at the 22-seat tables will be able to enjoy a variety of different meals on one of eight ‘flights’ per day.

Guests will enjoy a menu of brunch dishes

One special flight will see diners take their kit off in the name of charity. Cheekily named ‘The Bottoms Up’ flight, this naked brunch will take place on 30 April. Guests will strip off, before being flown into the sky and dining from a yet-to-be-announced menu.

Nominations are now open to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. On 3 April, names will be drawn at random for a place on the flight, which will kick start London In the Sky’s May to July residency at The O2.

Guests cover the cost of the flight (£99 per head) and are encouraged to seek sponsorship, with the ticket price and further funds raised being shared between two charities. Those two charities are CoppaFeel!, which works to raise awareness of breast cancer, and Movember, which seeks to raise awareness of and funding for all things related to health issues faced by men.

London in the Sky guests normally keep their clothes on

The entrants that raise the most money are invited back to enjoy a dinner flight for two with unparalleled views of the capital’s skyline – and this time, with their clothes on.

If the idea of being starkers in front of strangers is your worst nightmare, (and to be honest, we don’t blame you) the series will offer plenty of opportunities to dine fully clothed. Alongside regular flights which will serve up breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, there will be other special flights too.

There will be eight flights per day

Check out some of the special flights below:

  • ‘High in the Sky’ will see a CBD-themed flight serving cocktails infused with the naturally derived and non-psychoactive extract from the cannabis plant (3 May)
  • Bottomless Brunch – a one-off event where visitors can enjoy a bottomless Prosecco brunch 100ft in the air (2 May)
  • Sky-High Tea – a quintessentially British afternoon tea of scones, sandwiches, hand-crafted cakes and bubbles (6 May)
  • Sun Salutations – start your day with sunrise yoga, a nourishing vegan brunch and breath-taking views as the city stirs into life (5 May)
  • London Wine Week – select lunchtime flights will incorporate a sommelier and wine flight for guests (9-13 May)

The Bottoms Up flight will take place on the 30 April at 8:30am. Guests can register interest for themselves or others at londoninthesky.co.uk  before 2 April and the 44 attendees will be announced on 5 April. There will be two tables of 22, one for CoppaFeel!, and one for Movember.
