A Proposal at Dinner in the Sky

During the nice summer weather, sitting on the balcony of a nice restaurant in pleasant company is all you want. The view from the balcony is beautiful, but perhaps the wall or railings get in the way of full bliss and you keep thinking you’d enjoy the environment and the food much more if the restaurant was a little further above sea level. Well, what if the restaurant was located above the ground and had no railings or wall to get in the way of your great view? What if the restaurant was located in the sky?

Dinner in the Sky Georgia - one of the 10 most unusual restaurants in the world as selected by Forbes.com, is now in Tbilisi! It is surely one of the most unique experiences you could dream of. Dinner in the Sky is a Franchise of a flying fine dining restaurant that has been available for more than 12 years in 70 countries.

On a platform suspended by a crane 50 meters up in the sky, a chef will prepare a fancy four-course menu right in front of the 22 guests in the pop up kitchen, while a sommelier provides unlimited glasses of Georgian wine against a background of live music which serves as the cherry on the top to perfect the experience. Dinner in the Sky Georgia is a chance to enjoy delicious food, good music, an amiable atmosphere and what’s more, the amazing panorama of Tbilisi – the way you’ve never seen the city before.

The opening ceremony of the restaurant was held on May 15 with lots of fireworks, music and excited, happy faces. The lovely experience will be available for Tbilisians and its visitors until October. You can book tickets online on their official site (www.dinnerinthesky.ge).

Someone grabbed the special moment of the Dinner in the Sky experience recently: on May 24, a lovely couple, Masho Shogiradze and Levan Magradze, got engaged in the romantic atmosphere of Dinner in the Sky Georgia as they hung above the Bioli Resort just outside Tbilisi. GEORGIA TODAY offers an exclusive interview with the bride and the groom-to-be, who shared with us their experience of Dinner in the Sky Georgia.

How long have you been together? Tell us a little about your love story.

Masho: A year ago, my HR head hired a new worker, but we were to pretend to interview him (he didn’t know he was already hired) and suddenly start a balloon fight. I stood in front of him with my balloon, and he later told me it was love at first sight and he knew he had to marry me!

Over to the husband-to-be. What inspired you to propose in the sky? Did everything go as planned?

Levan: I saw Dinner in the Sky three years ago in Dubai and knew it would be a great place to propose. Masho’s afraid of heights so she was nervous, but it went better than planned. The flight crew really helped to make it unforgettable: there was live jazz music and a very romantic surrounding. She was super shocked; couldn't answer me at first, but finally she said yes!

Would you recommend other couples to propose at Dinner in the Sky and why?

Levan: Of course, I’d recommend it; it was a great experiance for both of us and we were very excited. It was the best day of our lives!

Masho: I wanted something more romantic than a regular show to watch and a proposal in the sky was so shocking- I was already feeling surprised and frightened, then added to that love and happiness, what with the romantic music and the delicious food, a new taste for me. I definitely recommend Dinner in the Sky. They have an amazing crew. Thanks to them for everything!
