Birmingham Airport’s New Control Tower to be Exclusive Pop-Up Restaurant

The West Midlands most exclusive pop-up restaurant will be open for only 20 evenings and seat just twelve diners. It will be opening later this month on the operational floor of Birmingham Airport’s new control tower, before the technical equipment is installed, and be run by former chef and restaurateur Birmingham born and bred Geoff Bartlett. For almost 30 years his Lichfield company, Corporate Occasions, has been providing distinctive and luxurious events for the cream of West Midland commerce and industry’

Altogether no more than 240 fortunate diners will be able to enjoy the unrivalled views high above the region’s international airport.  “There will certainly be fierce competition for a place at this most singular, if somewhat short-lived, dining-room”, said Geoff.  He is hard at work developing a true gourmet menu based on seasonal fresh produce from the regions farms and fields that offer some of England’s finest meat and vegetables, fruit and cheeses.  “The wines are being specially selected not only to match the dishes”, he explained, “ but will focus on the airport’s strong international connections by coming from those wine-producing nations that it serves with direct flights.”

The new Air Traffic Control Tower at Birmingham Airport (pictured) has started to take shape and has been growing at a rate of up to four metres a day over the last fortnight and already dominates the skyline.

On completion in 2013, the new £10m ATC tower will stand 33 metres above ground level and will be home to National Air Traffic Services – NATS – the Airport’s air traffic control provider. Allowing them to see the end of the extended runway, a development that will be complete in 2014 and will allow airlines to fly to more long haul destinations worldwide”
