What is it?
Popping up in West London four times in 2013, Mile High will transport adventure-seeking guests to a fantasy ‘city break’.
Mile High is inspired by the golden age of 1950s air travel, when legroom meant doing the twist and turbulence was a byproduct of the steward’s cocktail shaker. On arrival, air hostesses in Pan-Am inspired attire will welcome guests to the departure lounge, home of Mile High’s airborne DJ division.
Diners can enjoy ‘check in’ Campari cocktails and gourmet bar snacks served with pencil moustaches and a smile before embarking on Mile High’s foodie journey. The departure lounge Smorgasbord snacks will include fresh roe, dark rye sourdough served with smoked reindeer and pickles. Access to the departure lounge bar will be available from 9pm for non-diners to enjoy cocktails and tunes spun by one of the guest DJs. The first destination will be Göteborg, Sweden.
Diners will then enter an intimate space taking inspiration from the best of Swedish design and sample pan-fried scallops with puréed potato, charred spring onions and crispy garlic. This will be followed by crayfish, brown shrimp, smoked bacon, soured cream, dark rye and tarragon. Then diners can enjoy chargrilled elk with golden beetroot, mushrooms, dill and cucumber salad, rounded off with lingonberry ice cream with carrot cake crumble and licorice meringue. A vegetarian menu is available on request. Ex-Moro chef Oliver Templeton will serve up this Scandinavian four-course feast, fit for a Norse king. Whilst dining guests will enjoy the performance of Mile High’s unique cabin crew, ensuring a true evening of escapism and style.
Mile High will bring this culinary and creative experience to a secret West London location. Partnering with the West Sweden Tourist Board and Sunvil Discovery they will also be offering guests at the first event the chance to win a tailor made, three day, foodie trip for two to Göteborg.
Mile High will host four destinations throughout the year which include Beirut in May, Sicily in June and Mozambique in September.
So book your ticket and enjoy the ride.
