Welcome Aboard Pan Am!
Yes, you can fly Pan Am again! Well, sort of…you see, fans of the iconic airline – and their food – were sad to see this airline go out of business in 1991…
But while you can no longer fly Pan Am, some really smart Entrepreneurs have come up with a fantastic way to let you appreciate one aspect of their business – yes, there is now a way to eat their food!
Welcome To LA’s Most Exclusive Restaurant!
Yes, Pan Am is back open for a first class dining experience!
According to Robert Klara, who filed this great report at Adweek:
“For the past three years, adventurous gourmands, wealthy eccentrics and Hollywood A-listers have clamored for seats in what just might be L.A.’s most exclusive restaurant. Bestia? The Edmon? Providence? Nah—those power scenes are merely for the rich and famous. The truly adventurous have been competing for a reservation at the Pan Am Experience.”
Welcome To An Airline Hanger In Pacoima!
First, thanks to Mike Kelly and Air Hollywood for these images, which showcase an amazing new culinary adventure – from Pacoima!
If you’ve never heard of it, that’s OK – but if you want to experience this “once in a lifetime” Pam Am experience – you’ve got to go there – and you won’t be overwhelmed!
“From the outside, it certainly doesn’t look very exclusive. The restaurant is located in a beige brick warehouse behind razor wire in the industrial wastelands of the city’s Pacoima neighborhood. Yet once a week, a fortunate few assemble there to travel back in time. The complex at 13240 Weidner St. is home to Air Hollywood (more on that in a minute), and inside its warehouse sits a fully reconstructed forward section of a Pan American 747 wide-body jet.”
Flying Pan Am’s Friendly Skies – 50 Years Later!
Thanks to Adweek’s great story, here is what you can expect:
“The first-class interior section (roughly Row 9 and forward) functions most days as a movie backdrop. But on Saturdays, Air Hollywood’s management turns into a restaurant that recreates the experience of flying Pan Am 50 years ago—the six-course meals, the caviar and vodka, the statuesque flight attendants in short skirts, everything.”
There are three different levels of experience – all offering unique food and drinks, flight attendant safety instructions and so more fun!
While tickets are all sold out into July, here is the link where you can see what is offered on this amazing night:
Bravo to Robert Klara and Adweek.com for this story – and there is much more detail about this incredible night, including watching movies after your meal!

Now, if you can’t get in to enjoy this Pan Am experience, you can always fly North Korean Air to enjoy THIS:
Yes, this is the official meal served on North Korean Airlines – it’s a Koryo burger and it tastes as bad as it looks! See it here:
And since you were in the neighborhood, why not drop into China to eat here:
Yes, this “cliffside” restaurant exists! See the menu here:
And since I’m in Southeast Asia, why not drop into Taiwan and eat here:
Yes, it’s a restaurant that serves food in toilet bowls! OK, replicas…but still, would you dine here? See more wacky restaurants here:
I can’t wait to book a first class Pan Am dining experience!

Remaining 2017 tickets just went on sale!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if flying still looked like this, instead of being stuffed like sausages into tiny seats and served itsy bitsy bags of pretzels? 🙂

Yes indeed! Those days are long gone!
I guess we can visit this restaurant and pretend! 🙂
I think the Pan Am experience is preferable to the North Korean burger!
Best wishes, Pete.

Pete, I love the entrepreneurial aspect of this…making money by serving food in a unique setting! Thanks for your comment – I’d eat that N. Korean burger by the way – I would!
I would eat one with you, John. Honest!
