Imagine stepping inside a restaurant blanketed in darkness and being served a sublime three-course meal – the flavours and textures of which are intensified by your remaining senses, all paired with the perfect Balcones Whisky drinks to back the experience. Sounds a little bit incredible, right?
An experience that’s been backed by psychologists as an ‘amplified’ way to enjoy food, the enticing ‘Dine In The Dark’ event is bringing to Dallas a brand new menu so you can “see” for yourself.
Now with drinks brought by our new partners, Waco-based Balcones Distilling, a Texan award winning whisky distillery.
This special event promises to “elevate your meal to a whole new level” with darkened surroundings – leaving just you, your taste buds and your sense of smell to enjoy a three-course meal paired with whisky drinks from Balcones Distilling served at the luscious Fairmont Dallas. How mysterious!
Blindfolds will be provided to all guests, which will help to heighten your senses but also help stop you from peeking at what’s on your plate.
Guests will be led into the darkened environment by a “guide” who’ll be on hand to make sure you don’t bump into anything on your way in.
‘Dining In The Dark’ has received some rave reviews from attendees who have experienced the event in cities around the world.
💬 Aishlea S. – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Fantastic and well thought experience. Really had to rely on other senses to get your way through the table and manage to carefully grab your wine without spilling. Food menu was well thought out… Waitress Georgia was fantastic. Had a great time and would recommend to all”
💬 Devon P. – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Fabulous from start to finish. Waiters were great and welcoming and then food was amazing! Definitely would recommend and can’t wait to come back!”
Dallas’ ‘Dining In The Dark’ events take place on Wednesdays evenings, with sittings at 6 pm and 8:30 pm.
