Dans Le Noir


Dans Le Noir ? is an amazing experience, not far from Farringdon Station, where you can dine in complete darkness and then head over to the Bar for a few to drink in the lit lounge area.

So why dine in the dark? The whole idea is that if we dine in the dark and are served a surprise meal, it will heighten our other sensations, changing our perceptions and reversing our point of view. The evening of dining in the dark will be guided and served by blind guides and although you think it may just help your perception of the food you are eating in terms of sense and smell, it will also assist socially, as when in the dark, all preconceptions are taken away from the equation and issues like shyness are no longer an issue.

The Bar area is a lovely lounging area to sit and discuss your experience of dining in the dark with others, or to just visit for a few drinks. Its comfy armchairs and stocked up bar is inviting to anyone that needs something a little stronger. Afraid of the dark? Not to worry, the lit bar has no surprises.

From Wednesday to Sunday you can add a little hint to your experience by joining the silent bar event based on the concept of silent disco, but the restaurant’s one is unique as you can learn the basics of British Sign Language with deaf staff members.
