Just when you thought the Bristol food scene couldn’t get any more diverse, Bristol in the Sky arrives this week to transport you to the stratosphere...well almost. Taking place from 7-12 September on Waterfront Square by the Lloyds Amphitheatre, the four day pop up event will see diners dangling in the sky while tucking into gourmet treats from some of the South West’s best restaurants and bars. Heavenly!

Here’s what you need to know if you’re thinking of taking to the skies of Bristol for an unforgettable gastronomic experience.

How do I get up there?

The 22-seater dining table will be lifted very slowly 100ft in the air by crane, so make sure you’ve got a head for heights!

What can I eat?

Italian restaurant, Rosemarino, will be serving its award-winning breakfasts for the full six days - expect a twist on the legendary one-pan wonder and Bloody Marys galore.

Flying (lunch) feasts and suspended suppers will be catered for by Romy’s Kitchen, Harvey Nichols Bristol Second Floor Restaurant & Bar, Henry’s (Bath), Menu Gordon Jones (whose menu is a complete secret!) and Michelin-starred restaurant, James Sommerin (Cardiff).

For afternoon flights, award-winning Lovett Pies will be taking their pies to the sky for your delectation. Or why not indulge in some dreamy Swoon Gelato with a spectacular birds-eye view over Bristol.

Atmospheric quirky cocktail creations courtesy of Her Majesty’s Secret Service round up this exceptionally exciting event. A little bird tells us there’s an aviation theme going on…

What should I wear?

As British weather can be so temperamental, a jacket is advised - you don’t want to get chilly mid-flight. Bags have to be left on the ground and there are lockers available.

When should I get there?

Make sure you arrive 30 minutes before the flight for a safety briefing and a welcome drink!

Don’t forget…

Your camera or phone to capture this amazing experience – Bristol looks even better from this angle.
