London’s most dizzying pop-up (certainly not for those with a fear of heights) returns this summer. London in the Sky, a bar and restaurant suspended 100 ft in the air, will take up residency at Chelsea’s Art College from 19-30 July.
Enjoy the stunning views while chefs like Pascal Aussignac (Club Gascon), Robert Ortiz (Lima) and Callum Frank (Holborn Dining Room) serve up their signature dishes. On the menu: Peruvian favourites such as beef Pachamanca and Lima’s famous pineapple carpaccio; try one of Frank’s tasty pies or his refreshing beetroot and gin cured salmon with pickled beets.
Each evening Mayfair cocktail bar Mr Fogg’s will shake up four cocktails for each guest during the night-time flights. Sample an Elskling – a fruity concoction of Hendrick’s gin, elderflower liqueur, cloudy apple juice, lime, sugar syrup and peach bitters. Served alongside a selection of nibbles.
London in the Sky seats just 22 diners at a time and will be open for breakfast (£50), lunch (£125), champagne high tea (£75), dinner (£150-200) and cocktails (£75). Diners are securely fastened in at ground level before their elevated dining experience begins and the table is lifted 100 ft into the air.
