With over-sized novelty spoons in hand, ground was finally broken on the revived Dinner In The Sky concept first announced in January. A crane will hoist two open-air tables 180-feet into the air for a evening of food, drink and Las Vegas views. Each table weighs in at nearly seven tons before seating up to 22 guests.
Dinner packages will start at $290 per person and include a three-course meal with wine pairings and a photo. The hour-long experience will be available eight times at night from 5 to 10 p.m.
Buyout concepts include "Wedding in the Sky" and "Meeting in the Sky." For the faint of heart, a ground-level reception area features an bar, lounge and dining room serving the same food and drinks as their aerialist companions. Up in the sky, the harnessed diners will be joined by a chef, maître d' and mixologist.
In 2009 a short lived-version of this concept was closed after the operators unsuccessfully attempted to move their location directly onto the Strip. The new, improved and approved version has announced a summer opening date.
