Talk about the ultimate “date night.”
The NEMO33 deep pool in Brussels, Belgium is now offering customers the chance to have dinner five meters/16 feet below the surface.
How do they do it? Via a 2-meter/6.6-foot-wide sphere called the “Pearl” which is fastened in the pool’s upper level and seats up to four people.
To get to the air-filled Pearl, which has portholes for watching other divers train, you dive down to the bottom of the shallow end, leave your tank on the floor and hoist yourself into the air pocket. Waiters in scuba gear then serve you champagne, foie gras and lobster salad in waterproof cases.
The NEMO33 enjoyed 10 years of having the world record for deepest pool, and even though that record has since been surpassed, that hasn’t stopped divers from flocking to the facility to take dive training courses.
Dining in the sphere costs 99 Euros/US$106 per person. If that price is too steep, you can always eat in the facility’s on-site Thai restaurant.
