Using a crane to host its diners, and with waiting staff 150 feet into the air, Dinner in the Sky is certainly one of the most unusual restaurants in the world. This spectacular dining experience allows up to 22 diners on board each time, along with the chefs, waiter, and photographer. You can even hire a band or an entertainer to play for you and your friends.
P.S. The company that owns the scary diner says that each dinner party is insured for $10 million, and everyone is given a complete safety briefing before lift-off. This bottomless luxury dining experience does not come cheap either – its $11,000 price tag might just give you a heart attack.
