A unique experience
First of all, even if you have not yet heard of the “ Dinner in the sky ” concept (DITS), it's not too hard to figure out immediately what it means - to dine somewhere up in the sky. However this is not about a restaurant on the top of a skyscraper. While that would not be bad at all, we believe this to be something much more exciting! Let's discover it together!
Dinner in the Sky is an innovative concept restaurant: a platform with a bar- table on top is suspended in midair, and on it , you are seated and strapped in a special chair, a chef cooks in front of you, an artist entertains everybody and voila you will fine-dine with an unforgettable view!
The bar-table is suspended around 50 meters above the ground, and the total capacity is 22 people per session and depending on the time of day, a session lasts between 25 minutes to an hour. One can chose to enjoy the sunrise, or a gourmet dinner or simply cocktails & canapés .In the middle of the platform a chef, a waiter and an entertainer - usually a professional artist- will ensure the good mood of the dinner guests.
Of course, as you can imagine, the event is taking place within a short time frame, in different places all over Romania. The next opportunity to to get your dinner in the sky in Bucharest is at....
Bucharest in the Sky 2016
Later this summer, between 25-28th August 2016, DITS will be organizing the Bucharest in the Sky Event in a special place: above the Romanian Atheneum. If you prefer, you can choose a breakfast or a wine tasting "flight". And the most interesting option, the one we would recommend, is a special dinner called "Bucurestiul interbelic" where a historian will tell you about the city of Bucharest and its history between the fist and second World War. Reservations can be made on the official site (Click here!).

• How Dinner in the Sky concept was created•
In May 2006, , a recently born communications agency specialized in high -end gourmet pleasures entitled Hakuna Matata joined forces with The Fun Group, a company specialized in amusement park installations deploying cranes. As a result, what will seem like a child’s dream came true: a flying dinner table baptized the Dinner in the Sky ( dinnerinthesky .com) which served as the venue for 22 Young European Restaurant Owners to don their white chef’s hat. Seems like the concept was an immediate success as it spread as a franchise all over the world in less than a decade. Consequently, over the past years, Dinner in the Sky has criss-crossed the skies of 45 countries and of course is present in Romania , too.
