Dining in an underwater restaurant used to be something only characters in movies could do, but nowadays there are underwater establishments in Florida, Dubai and the Maldives when you're feeling like dining with the fishes.
And in 2019 you can add Båly, Norway to that list of destinations by visiting the newest and coolest looking underwater restaurant Under, which was designed by Norwegian architecture firm Snohetta.
Under has the windows that let diners stare at fish while they eat a fish fillet, but the best part about Under is that sunken ship feel missing from those other underwater establishments:
“It should be an exciting experience, but people should also feel secure and well sitting down there," Rune Grasdal, the project’s lead architect, told CNN.
With an emphasis on local cuisine, the restaurant will accommodate up to 100 people. A huge panoramic window will provide views of the seabed and abundant marine life.
Guests will descend three levels through a submerged wardrobe area, a champagne bar and then finally the restaurant itself. The name, Under, is a play on words - in Norwegian, "under" can also mean “wonder”.
