DANS LE NOIR ?, RANKS AMONG THE 10 MOST ORIGINAL RESTAURANTS IN THE WORLD

A UNIQUE SENSORY AND HUMAN EXPERIENCE

Dans Le Noir ? Restaurant

Since 2006, Dans le Noir ? restaurant, located in the heart of London in the traditional Clerkenwell district, has been offering the opportunity to taste gourmet, creative and seasonal cuisine in complete darkness, accompanied and served by unexpected guides. Dinner or lunch in pitch darkness is an original experience that allows us to re-evaluate our perception of taste while reclaiming our senses, to reinvigorate our relationship with the world and others and to experience a surprising encounter with something different.

Dans le Noir ? Sensory Workshops

To go further, Dans le Noir ? also offers convivial workshops: delicatessen and wine tastings selected by our sensory experts and our Sommelier Fabio Sutera. Work with our teams to plan memorable, effective and unique Team Building events. We also offer Kids Tasting sessions to awaken your children's senses.

DANS LE NOIR ? RESTAURANT IN LONDON

UNUSUAL EXPERIENCE

Regularly ranked among the 10 most original restaurants in the world, Dans le Noir ? is a unique location for a romantic dinner, or an evening with friends. It is also a place to meet and discover others, as popularised in the Richard Curtis film "About Time". It is also an excellent choice when celebrating a diploma, success, a contract, a birthday, a wedding anniversary, a stag do or a hen party. You could meet a celebrity, or simply somebody interesting. In our restaurant, you never know who is sitting next to you!

INNOVATIVE & RESPONSIBLE

At Dans le Noir ? we pay particular attention to our ecological impact and more generally to matters related to social and environmental responsibility. We take particular care with the traceability of meat and fish, and use a large proportion of organic fruits and vegetables. Fred Dickieson gastronomic and creative cuisine is based on the selection of high quality ingredients. All our menus are tested and improved through tastings by sensory experts in pitch darkness.

THE SPIRIT OF WINE

Blind wine tasting in pitch darkness accompanied by our sommelier Fabio Sutera: rediscover wine through an original and multi-sensory approach combining taste and smell.
On request, the team can also organise tastings of delicatessen products. An excellent suggestion for a Wine Club, a stag do or a hen party.

TEAM BUILDING

Plan memorable, effective and striking Team Building events for your team. By going off the beaten track, participants will be forced to step outside their comfort zone and cooperate to find solutions. A convivial experience that breaks with conventions and hierarchies as you dive into darkness and discover others... without preconceptions.

KIDS TASTING

By prior reservation only, Dans le Noir ? offers Kids Tasting sessions, to awaken the senses of children between 6 and 12 at an emotional session with a difference. This unusual activity will arouse their curiosity. Organise your group (8 to 20 children) and contact our team. An excellent idea for a birthday celebration, for example.
