As far as unique dining experiences go, Kuala Lumpur (KL) is not without its fair share of them. From having a lovely dinner in the confines of a repurposed aeroplane to the sensory deprivation of Dining In The Dark to the accompanying panoramic view of the city’s nightscape on a helipad, KL is the perfect place to celebrate and spend some time with your loved ones.
And with the end of 2019 fast approaching, what better way to cap it off than by indulging in the peculiarity and quirky nature of these dining experiences?
Enter Lounge In The Sky.
A New/Not New Dining Experience
While not exactly a newcomer in the realms of elevated dining, Lounge In The Sky is the latest novel attraction to hit the shores of KL. The unique dinner experience — a concept of Belgium origins and the first of its kind in Asia — made its debut in the city just last month.
Also, this attraction shouldn’t be confused with the similarly themed Dinner In The Sky. The dining experience is the result of a collaboration between TwoSpicy Entertainment and Elements Kuala Lumpur. The latter providing its locale at TREC, Jalan Tun Razak to place the attraction.
TwoSpicy Entertainment, in particular, is known for setting up a wide array of unique dining experiences in KL including the aforementioned Dinner In The Sky, Plane In The City, and Whimsy. So it comes as no surprise that the company is the one behind the latest dining hype in KL.
What To Expect From Lounge In The Sky
True to its name, Lounge In The Sky involves a crane used to hoist a large platform up into the sky. And along with it, guests and waiting staff are elevated to a height of 150 feet off the ground for a magical 40-minute dining experience.
Imagine. The soft breeze of the city air flowing through your hair as you admire the amazing bird’s eye view of KL. A truly one-of-a-kind experience indeed!
And all the while, your taste buds will be delightfully assailed by the incredible lineup of canapes and dishes prepared by Element’s executive chef, Steve Ariffin.
Acting as the perfect accompaniment to your scrumptious dinner, exclusive drinks are also presented by Osmund Bernard — winner of World Class Bartender 2016.

But apart from that, a distinctive feature of Lounge In The Sky revolves around its platform design. The platform’s huge capacity allows for groups of up to four pax to have their own private dining space (as private as it can get with an open space platform suspended above the ground, at least) and up to 32 pax per session. Furthermore, an add-on stage also allows for live performances, presentations, and other events to take place — mid-air.
For diners with a severe fear of heights, fret not! Lounge In The Sky practises the utmost standards in safety procedures. Seated guests will be required to wear safety belts at all times while standing staff and crew are always secured by safety harnesses.
A safety supervisor will also be present to brief patrons about dos and don’ts while being suspended. The supervisor will also be in constant communication with the crane operator and ground staff to ensure a smooth flight. Also, proper certification by TÜV Rhineland, a global provider of technical, safety, and certification services does help to ease the minds of the patrons.
