Dinner in the Sky Las Vegas officially began construction today with a groundbreaking ceremony at an 8.8 acre site minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip. The one-of-a-kind upscale dining attraction serving meals 180 feet in the air is scheduled to open later this Summer.
Celebration attendees included Owner Janeen Hinden, Managing Partner Kelley Jones, and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) Director of Customer Experience Hugh Sinnock.
The groundbreaking ceremony was concluded with Hinden, Jones, Sinnock and Hinden's two children, Michael Hinden Jr. and Janeen Hinden, breaking ground with oversized spoons.
Dinner in the Sky will suspend diners on two open-air tables, each weighing in at nearly seven tons with seating for up to 22 guests, offering 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding mountains. The franchise will be the first of its kind in the U.S. and will become the first addition to the famous Las Vegas skyline since 2010.
