Dining underwater will soon become reality with Europe’s first underwater restaurant officially announced in Norway. Works start as early as February 2018 and should last no more than 12 months in a project designed by Norwegian architectural firm Snøhetta.
Called “Under,” the restaurant will stand on the sea bed five meters below the surface, its thick walls designed to withstand the most variable sea conditions.
Visitors can expect three levels and a capacity of up to 100 people. Below the entrance and the cloakroom there will be a champagne bar, to mark the transition between shoreline and ocean. Further down there will be a dining room, with two long tables and several smaller ones positioned in front of the large acrylic window, which will be 13 feet tall.
