“Santa in the Sky” launched as a magical four-day pop-up in the Belgian capital, and was a seasonal twist on the regular “Dinner in the Sky” venture. Guests enjoy a dinner at the table “Santa in the sky” lifted by a crane and elevated at 50 meters into the air in the restaurant and decorated to match the appearance of a “Santa Sleigh”, as part as the Christmas festivities in Brussels, November 25, 2016. The twinkly-light bedecked carriage was ‘drawn’ through the air by four reindeer, but not alive.
Diners were welcomed by a bell-ringing Santa Claus, and could drink hot chocolate with him and warm themselves with a delicious Belgian waffle. Diners, who sit strapped to chairs to eat at a bar running round the open kitchen, can pay up to €250 ($265) for a gastronomic four-course supper with wine, or go for options starting at 55 euros for tea—of course, it’s “high tea.”
Michael Chiche, who helps run the Brussels-based firm that over the past 10 years has brought the sky-dining experience to 58 countries, said he was confident the four-day Christmas event which ends on Sunday, would be repeated next year.
