5. Restaurant in the Sky
How does dangling 50m in the air while having dinner sound?
This activity first popped up in Belgium, but quickly spread across the globe. At this particular Restaurant in the Sky, diners are strapped down and served simple meals from a stove in the middle of the structure. There is no bathroom, so you’d better be prepared to sit still for a couple of hours.
You can find our very own version of dining in the sky at Higher Ground Restaurant in Bryanston.
4. Heart Attack Grille
The theme is hospital-like and you’re served ridiculously fatty foods by make-believe nurses. The most famous dish is the quadruple bypass burger, which has more calories than any other restaurant dish on the planet.
Most famously, anyone that weighs more than 150kg eats for free.
3. Dining in the Dark
At this place in London it’s all about taste. No flashlights, phones or watches are allowed and just to make sure, patrons are blindfolded when it’s not dark enough. You are literally dining in the dark.
The servers wear night vision goggles to ensure they don’t stumble around, but everyone else is encouraged to use every sense but sight to enjoy the experience.

2. Dick’s Last Resort
It’s where you go to be treated rudely. Staff are encouraged to be nasty with visitors, while the infamous Dick will write out rude phrases on a dunce cap that every patron is required to wear.
The phrases are too rude for a family website, but feel free to Google it if you’re feeling brave.
1. The Modern Toilet Restaurant
Patrons are seated on toilets, while every dish is served in one as well. We have no idea why anyone would go to a place like this, but it has become so popular that it has spawned a bunch of similar places all over Taiwan.
