'Floating restaurant' debuts in Shanghai, China, diners suspended 164 feet in the air by a crane

A new restaurant in Shanghai is literally offering its customers an "elevated" dining experience.

Customers at this restaurant are elevated more than 160 feet into the air for a memorable meal.

Guests are first buckled into their seats and a crane then slowly hoists the restaurant to a height of about 164 feet.

A customer who was among the first to experience dinner in the sky said it was an exciting experience.

This is shanghai's first mid-air restaurant.

The opening on Friday drew crowds who looked up as guests enjoyed their meal high in the sky.

Afternoon tea costs about $300 on the floating restaurant, while dinner costs about $1,400.
