DINNER in the Sky is the latest pop-up dining experience in Perth and is literally a “high flying” venue.

Set up at Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth, Dinner in the Sky brings foodies’ love affair with fine cuisine to new heights.

A crane lifts a bar-table 50m into the air so diners can enjoy 360 views, including the vast expanse of the Swan River and the cityscape.

The crane pivots occasionally, so diners can enjoy different vantage points.

The table seats 22 people, who are secured by a four-point strap system. The seats can lay back and rotate 180 degrees.

There are several “flights” each day, including brunch, lunch, cocktails and dinner.

Top chefs create five-star culinary delights and the service is impeccable as well as entertaining.

As for the delicate topic of using bathroom facilities, the table is not suspended in the air for too long and can be gently brought down in no time.

Dinner in the Sky is a unique experience, which has been operating around the world for more than 10 years.

Events in the Sky Australia owner Simon Laxton said he hoped to take Dinner in the Sky to other WA sites, such as Margaret River and Broome.
