Manchester to welcome pop-up restaurant 110ft above ground

October 13, 2017 by  

Manchester’s latest pop-up restaurant may not be suitable for anyone with a fear of heights. Sky High Tea is available 100ft above the ground, on a crane-suspended table, courtesy of the Etihad Stadium.

The tables boasts 22 seats, with a waiting team, sommelier, and head chef. Guests will need to be strategic regarding timing their toilet breaks as they will be fastened to their seats before the dining table travels 100 feet for their air-culinary experience.

Roberts, the Cheshire-based bakers, will be providing the food after agreeing to partner with Events in the Sky to provide a spread featuring a selection from its latest range. The spread is to include bloomers, sandwiches made from its Fiery Corn Ready-to Rolls, and boozy Gin & Tonic Fun Buns.

Roberts’ Managing Director, Stuart Spencer-Calnan, said:

“We’re inviting guests to enjoy a totally different and unique experience – enjoying the most al fresco afternoon tea, made from our delicious new bakery products, at a seriously high altitude. It’s set to be simply breath-taking with spectacular views of the city.”

Roberts is promoting the innovative dining experience on its website. Along with Events in the Sky, it has the opportunity to widen its promotion, through additional marketing services to let Manchester know about this usual dining opportunity.
