It looks like there will be no high flying dining on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Clark County commissioners last Wednesday denied a local entrepreneur’s request to move his Dinner in the Sky business there. Michael Hinden’s company hoists patrons 160 feet high so they can get a good look at Las Vegas while dining.
Hinden’s business is currently off west Sahara Avenue, as was previously written in an article by Las Vegas Backstage Access. But there he can only operate a crane on Fridays and Saturdays. He says he needs a place where he can offer sky dinners nightly.
After getting resistance to his proposed location at the former New Frontier hotel, Hinden withdrew his request.
For a chance to sky dine, people pay $200 to be strapped into a seat at a dinner table that’s on a platform lifted into the air by a crane.
