How Blind Cafe Works?

Pre dining

 

Upon arrival at Blind Cafe - Dine in the dark, our staff will escort you to the waiting area. Here, the concept and the dining process will be described in detail by our staff. 

 

Before proceeding to the completely dark dining area, we will ask that you place all light emitting objects, such as mobile phones, watches, lighters, and cameras into a secure locker. This is to improve the dining experience for all of our guests. Lockers are provided free of charge and are monitored by camera at all times to ensure your security.

 

We also suggest that you visit the restroom before entering the dining area, as leaving the area mid-meal may dilute the overall experience for you.

Dining

 

Your guide will lead you into the dining area and to your seat and describe what is on your table. It will feel unusual and you may want to whisper at first. Your guide will start to serve our exquisite mystery menu at this time. While waiting for the main course, you enjoy a appetiser to begin this sensory experience.

 

If you need your guide at any time, please call them by their first name and they will attend to you promptly. If you need to use the toilet, or feel uncomfortable in the darkness, call your guide’s name and they will help escort you out of the dining area.

 

For the safety of our guides and other guests, please do not leave your seat in the dining area unless your guide is accompanying you.

 

Post dining

 

While you are having your dessert, your guide will perform a short live music performance, showcasing their talent. Thereafter we will slowly on the lights. It may take a few moments for your eyes to adjust to light, so you may want to look down or shield your eyes for a few moments. This is normal. Once the room is full lighted, it is time to say farewell and we surely hope that you had a one of a kind sensory experience at Blind Cafe - Dine in the dark.
