Brand experience agency Events in the Sky has announced plans to open a experiential gourmet restaurant 100 feet above the ground in London.

Up to 22 guests will be strapped into the platform at Canary Wharf after watching their food being prepared by a Michelin-starred chef. They will then be transported 100 feet into the air for the dining experience.

The chefs selected to serve the airborne guests include Anna Hansen from The Modern Pantry, who will provide breakfast, Pascal Aussignac from Club Gascon and Xavier Boyer from L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon. Diners will be protected from the elements by a branded roof awning.

Events in the Sky is part of the global group Dinner in the Sky. It currently operates in more than 40 countries, including Turkey, France, Brazil and the US.

Dale Agar, director of Dinner in the Sky, said: "Having enjoyed a successful run on the continent we are very excited to offer Londoners the opportunity to enjoy their fantastic restaurant scene up amongst some of the most iconic skyscrapers. This event is going to be extraordinary."

Atul Kochhar, a selected chef from restaurant Benares, added: "London is one of the greatest cities in the world and we are now being recognised as a leading culinary hub as well.

"London in the Sky marries our famous skyline with our highly respected food and it was an opportunity we absolutely couldn’t pass up. We can’t wait to get cooking up there."

The experience opens on 12 September to both public and corporate bookings and will run until 21 September. Prices begin at £50 per person for breakfast.
