LAS VEGAS, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A Las Vegas developer said her Dinner in the Sky restaurant will hoist diners 180 feet into the air to eat their gourmet meals.

Janeen Hinden said construction has begun on the tower, which will hold up to 22 diners, waiters and a chef, and is expected to be ready for the eatery to open by April, the Las Vegas Sun reported Thursday.

"I think it's going to do phenomenal in Las Vegas. We are the capital for entertainment and culinary arts, and this just takes those over the top," Hinden said. "I hope this will be an iconic attraction in the city."

Hinden said diners, who will pay $290 each for their meals, will be held to their chairs by six-point harnesses and will spend about an hour atop the platform while enjoying a three course meal and dessert.

Hinden said she may expand the concept to other locations, including New York, San Diego and Hawaii, if it proves successful in Las Vegas.
