You can now dine 100ft above the O2

London is home to some truly stunning views, and there’s nothing quite like the glamourous, sexy feeling you get when dining at a sky-high restaurant, like The Shard. You know the problem with all of those high-rise eateries though? They’ve got windows. That’s where London in the Sky, London’s highest alfresco restaurant, comes into play.

In summer 2019, 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.

For 2019, London in the Sky will be offering guests the chance to have breakfast, lunch, Prosecco and cake, cocktails or dinner while suspended above one of the world’s most famous concert venues.

Caterers Social Pantry will be providing all of the food, and if you’re worried about being dished up frozen ready meals, fear not – despite the challenging environment, all of the dishes at London in the Sky are prepared and served in front of guests.

With London in the Sky having previously visited the South Bank and Tower Bridge, this year’s view from above the O2 will take in Canary Wharf and the Thames. If you’ve tried it out before, you’ll be glad to hear that the team are doing things a little differently this time around, offering a calendar of yet-to-be-announced special events.

Although nothing has been officially confirmed, we’ve heard rumblings that the special one-off flights might include afternoon teas and vegan menus, all enjoyed high in the sky. Flights run between 8.30am and 8.30pm, with each one lasting between 45 minutes to an hour. Tickets are priced from £89 per person and can be purchased from londoninthesky.co.uk
