Runway 34 offers Swiss visitors a unique dining experience that takes place inside, around, and on top of a decommissioned Soviet airplane that has been restored to its former glory. Much of the aircraft and hangar’s effects were kept in-tact — renovations and modifications include the addition of gorgeous wooden flooring, atmospheric lighting, and windows.
Each and every detail in Runway 34 is aviation-inspired — from the airplane tail fin menu holders to the in-flight magazine racks. Airline seats can be found throughout the restaurant in addition to deep red leather bucket chairs. The main cabin has been transformed into an elegant cigar lounge that emulates a first class cabin, with cocktail tables arranged around the small airplane windows. To add to the kitsch, servers are dressed as flight attendants as they serve drinks in the narrow aisle.
