The Inception of Sky Dining in Bangladesh

Skydining Bangladesh started its journey on November 30. Located at Sugandha Beach in Cox’s Bazar Sea beach, the restaurant is beautifully decorated. It has been introduced with adequate seating space. A crane has been set up in the empty space on the west side of the restaurant.

On a special deck, chairs, tables, and umbrellas with a capacity of 24 people have been made open to the surrounding area. The crane’s head is attached to the deck with an aluminum-steel bracket. Restaurant staff will serve if you order food of your choice in the kitchen.

Ensuring complete safety, food is being provided here with the help of state-of-the-art machine cranes at the height of 160 feet above the ground of the beach. The tourists are getting a thrilling feeling of being entertained in the realm of clouds. Entrepreneurs hope the hanging restaurant will change the face of tourism in Cox’s Bazar.

Is it Safe?

An open Skydining is built around a deck with chairs, tables, and an umbrella-like roof. The restaurant is lifted from the ground to the sky by a special type of crane. After the guests sit at the Skydining table, the staff secures them with three levels of belts. So, you can say it is quite safe to ride in a SkyDining.

With the help of a crane, the whole deck is lifted very slowly. Once the deck reaches 160 feet, the food gets served. However, the dining deck revolves around the air. At the end of the two-hour meal, it comes down with the guests.
