Casa Velas’ signature Sky-High Cocktail sets the night’s tone during a complimentary cocktail hour preceding Dinner in the Sky at the Puerto Vallarta resort.
Exploring new heights, Dinner in the Sky comes to the Mexican Pacific resort town until February 28, 2017, lifting adventurous guests nearly 150 feet in the air by a crane for a three-course gourmet dinner.
Participants enjoy menus designed by top chefs, including Mikel Alonso and Bruno Oteiza, disciples of Spanish superstar Juan Arzak; Michel Mustière, Maître Cuisinier de France; Xavi Pérez Stone, former “Best Chef in Mexico” and winner of the “Iron Chef 2014”; and, Mexican TV personality Chef Yolanda Yanar among others, complemented by breathtaking views of the Banderas Bay and Sierra Madre Mountains.
