A suspended dining table appeared outside of a hotel in Shanghai’s Lujiazui on June 27, allowing 22 customers a (we imagine) terrifying dining experience at 50 meters.
This five-star Season Hotel actually promoted service for 14 “Sky Restaurants”, sitting up to 308 people within three days for prices ranging from 1800 to 8888 RMB.
Customers to the “Sky Restaurant” were slowly pulled up by a huge hoist set up in the hotel’s outdoor parting lot as they sat buckled into their seats, and just like a ride at an amusement park, their small-sized items were asked to be kept on the ground so that they wouldn’t fall and hit someone below.
According to the sponsor, the “Sky Restaurant” will be back Shanghai again from September to October.
These netizen comments on the whole ordeal sum it up pretty nicely:
“When the restaurant goes up to 50 meters, the dishes cost doubled or tripled. Enjoy your food!” microblogger 清风泛舟 said.
“The first thing to do up there is to take a selfie! Don’t they say small items are not allowed to bring up there? Cellphones are excluded?” web user 七玄 asked.
杯具不需要剧本 said, “In my opinion, this group of people were wrapped into a lunchbox to eat their fast food!”
An annoymous user questioned, “What if they suffer from diarrhea?”
太君您的车找到了 replied that when “Eating up in the air, people can feel the gravity become stronger, so actually it’s good to cure constipation.”
The more you know.
