Pitch Black is a new boundary-pushing concept that challenges the way you view your drinks, quite literally

The 90-minute blind tasting will see guests sip on a pre-set selection of 5 libations. Consisting of bubbles on arrival, 2 mouth-watering cocktails, an amuse bouche to cleanse the palate, followed by 2 aromatic wines, to be imbibed in absolute darkness.


The project boldly aims to shift the focus solely on the facets of flavour, aroma and mouthfeel as opposed to presentation. Dismiss any fears you have about being cast into a disorienting dark den, as guests will initially enter a warmly lit space, be formally introduced to their server and have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with their surroundings before the lights go down. At lights out, staff and patrons are invited to remain communicative, discussing the festival of herbaceous, sweet, savoury and floral treats set before them.


Entry to 'Pitch Black' is on a strictly bookings only basis, where tickets may be purchased via the website. Allocated time slots of 90 minutes are available for what is a fully experimental experience. The pop-up will run for only a limited amount of time, November through December. A multi-sensory adventure unlike any other, it’s the perfect outing for big groups of friends, couples and discerning drinkers.


Developed by drink industry veterans Lee Baker and Dom Balfour, who between them have a combined experience of over 20 years, they bring a wealth of knowledge accumulated through running and owning some of the most feted bars in east London and producing connections that have graced the pages of lifestyle glossies.

An interesting experience. A little too warm in the room. Lovely cocktails & canapes. Megan visited Loves Company on 10 Nov 2016

While it was dark, it probably should also have been silent. There wasn't a real sense of sensory deprivation at all - just drinks in the dark. It was fun enough - something to do, but it really wasn't a sensation. And for the price, it wasn't an amazing night. Peter visited Loves Company on 12 Nov 2016
