From Delish

As someone that's, well, terrified of heights, the thought of dangling 150 feet in the air kills my appetite. But if that actually sounds like a thing you'd want to do, Dinner in the Sky is a pop-up restaurant that is suspended from a crane.

...Seriously.

Back in 2006, communications agency Hakuna Matata and The Fun Group, which specializes in amusement park installations that use cranes (weird flex but ok), teamed up for the concept. And together they created a legit flying restaurant. Since, the venue has landed in 45 countries, including the U.S., Australia, India, Japan, Dubai, and more.

"We flew over the most magical places imaginable: the Strip of Las Vegas, the gardens of the King David Hotel, the Marina of Dubai, the hills of the Villa Borghese, the banks of the St. Lawrence River, the beach of Copacabana and Cape Town bay," the website reads.

So how does it work? Dinner in the Sky uses a "steel carrying structure" to hoist the 30-person eatery over 100 feet in the air. There's a waitstaff, alternating chefs, and great food and drink.

The restaurant's current Brussels event, which opened June 13 and runs through Sunday, June 23, includes a five-course meal for 295 euros (rough $330 USD). Featured chefs include Yves Mattagne, David Martin, Pierre Résimont, Bart De Pooter, and more. Reservations are available for noon, 7 p.m., and 9:30 p.m.

If you'd rather, idk, get married or play golf up there, there's that, too. "Marriage in the Sky offers couples the opportunity to get married just as they would in church with a priest, witnesses, family members and friends, an organ, but in the clouds, among the angels and at [150 feet] above ground," the site continues. "This platform can also be used for Swing in the Sky, which gives golfers the incredible experience of playing their swing from 50 meters in the sky!"
