Sky Lounge takes diners on a culinary flight of fancy

Sky Lounge, one of Ottawa 2017’s signature events, is an exclusive culinary flight of fancy. With a cocktail and a dinner option, attendees enjoy fine dining prepared by Chef Stephen La Salle and his team from Andaz’s Feast+Revel restaurant as you float 150 feet above Ottawa, suspended by a crane parked at City Hall.
