Food & Drink

Is this Spanish Hard Rock Hotel housing the most expensive restaurant ever?

Still got tax-refund cash lying around? You could splurge on a nice Scotch, or you could put that money toward a single appetizer at Sublimotion, a crazy "gastro-sensory venture" opening in the Hard Rock Hotel in Ibiza, Spain that's far more expensive than the gift shop's Dee Dee Ramone sunglasses. The 20-course meal by Michelin-starred chef Paco Roncero will cost each diner over $2,000 -- but if you're a Floyd fan, you're in luck, because that price includes a hell of a light show.

Projections and lighting are a big part of Sublimotion -- it's basically aiming to be the world's most hallucinatory restaurant, with the dining area lit up by all sorts of psychedelic designs that come alive and make you feel like you're eating in a video game. The white tables routinely get superimposed by swirling animated scenes like this one. Or, for those of you who prefer camping to MoMa outings...

... more rustic fare like this, with blowing leaves. They even do something special with those "mushrooms" on the log plates...

... like maybe hypnotize you into buying another $300 app. Words can hardly explain the psychedelia at this place. First, grab a snack, then feast your eyes on this video tour.
