DANS LE NOIR ? RESTAURANT, A SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX EXPERIENCE:

in Blog

by Aurore

Since 2004, the international concept Dans le Noir ? offers its clients an extraordinary culinary experience in the dark. But pitch darkness also means no smartphone or any other screen! In a few weeks, our guests will be able to live this original immersive adventure in Belgium, within Warwick Brussels hotel in Central Brussels.
LIVE THE PRESENT MOMENT…

When dining at the restaurant, we all have this friend who do not wants us to eat before they make Instagram stories of each plate, don’t we? Or maybe, this is you! Whatever, eight months without going to the restaurant was long… So, when they will open again, we will not wait one more minute before eating! Before entering the dark room, you will be asked to place all potential light sources in the cloakroom provided free of charge. Without your smartphone, forget about the virtual world and live the present moment without being disturbed by a SMS or a notification. Enjoy this digital detox! …

OF AN EXTRAORDINARY HUMAN EXPERIENCE

Preconceptions do not exist in the dark; you completely reassess your relationship with others and the world. You reconnect with your friends, your partner, or your colleagues, and despite the 150-cm distance between each table due to covid restrictions, you talk more easily to other clients. It is quite common that people who did not know each other before entering the dark room, go for a drink at the bar after the experience. It is one of the great powers of the dark room: communication becomes simpler and more spontaneous.

“LOVED this experience. It was so different to anything I have ever done before (…) We had a good laugh with the table next to us and a chat, which again was nice even though we didn’t have a clue who we were talking to!” Connie on Tripadvisor, London, December 2020.

Are you ready for a true digital detox?

9 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DANS LE NOIR ? BRUSSELS

in Blog

by Aurore

DANS LE NOIR ? IS OPENING IN CENTRAL BRUSSELS: 9 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR CONCEPT. 

Our international concept Dans le Noir ? will open its doors on May 27th* within Warwick Brussels hotel, near to the Grand Place. Before welcoming you in an immersive adventure in the heart of Brussels, we reveal 9 things you should know about our concept.

1. Dans le Noir ? was born in 2004 with the opening of a first restaurant in Paris which is still regularly fully booked. The year after, the brand expanded abroad by opening a new venue in London. Currently, more than 10 cities welcome the concept of dining in the dark and many pop up restaurants were implemented over the years across the world.  

2. Our restaurants Dans le Noir ? are an attraction for the celebrities. For example, Kate & William regularly come to our restaurant in London: they love it because they can go unnoticed and spend a fantastic night. In pitch darkness, we are all equals: anonymous, politicians, actors or celebrities, who knows who is the person sitting next to us?

3. Dans le Noir ? hires more than 50% of visually impaired people. They are definitely the most efficient persons to guide our clients in the dark. This job is essential to our concept, but this is not the only one they can be involved in! For example, one of the co-founders of the group is blind as well.

4. Have you ever seen the romantic British movie About Time? The two major characters Tim and Mary, played by the actors Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams, meet for the first time within Dans le Noir ? London restaurant. We don’t want to spoil the movie; you need to discover it by yourself!

5. We dedicate much attention to the quality of the ingredients we use in our plates. At Dans le Noir ? Brussels, the Head Chef Grégory Lauwaert created a surprise menu specifically dedicated to our unusual concept in Brussels.

6. We realise that communication is more spontaneous in total darkness. Our clients talk to each other from one table to another. It happens often that some of them who did not know each other before entering the dark room, go for a drink at the bar after the experience. This experience creates beautiful encounters

7. You may know Dans le Noir ? for its restaurants, but did you know about its other immersive experiences in the dark, such as Spas, Sensory Lounge or Escape Game?

8. In an interview in March 2021, guess what Craig David answered to the question "Where would you recommend for a first date?" ? Dans le Noir ? , of course! We told you: celebrities looove our restaurant.

9. Our restaurants welcome both private and corporate events. Birthday or bachelorette parties, proposals, or even corporate teambuilding activities: we have lot of amazing ideas to enjoy a special event in the dark at Dans le Noir ? Brussels restaurant. Your guests will remember it forever; we are regularly ranked among the ten most original concept in the world.

A UNIQUE RESTAURANT CONCEPT ABOUT TO OPEN ITS DOORS IN CENTRAL BRUSSELS

in Blog

by Aurore

Enjoy an unforgettable evening at Dans le Noir ?, the unique concept where guests eat in pitch darkness. The new venue is opening within Warwick Hotel, which is located in the heart of Brussels next to the Grand-Place. Based on high quality ingredients especially fresh fruits and vegetables, our creative cuisine will make you step out of your comfort zone during this timeless moment.

AN UNUSUAL EXPERIENCE

Have you ever tried to eat in the dark placing a blindfold over your eyes? A great way to challenge your capability to recognize your favourite food among others that look alike! It is called “blind tasting”, and the result can be very unexpected!

But we go further still, by offering you an immersive experience. This is the reason why Dans le Noir ? is regularly ranked among the 10 most original restaurants in the world.

We have been practicing our expertise in the dark for 16 years. In our restaurants, blindfolding your eyes is unnecessary as the room is completely dark. You will be asked to place all potential light sources such as lighter, mobile phones, cameras, etc. in the cloakroom provided free of charge. Our blind or partially sighted guides are doing a great job, and they will serve and guide you during all the experience to ensure you are enjoying your special dinner.

« The food is good, really good, but it’s the experience of eating in total darkness and having no concept of who you’re speaking to that’s so memorable! » John on TripAdvisor, London, March 2020.

WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES TO SAY SO: DANS LE NOIR ? IS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE AT DIFFERENT LEVELS

A sensory journey: The Head Chef Gregory LAUWAERT proposes a surprise menu, taking into account your alimentary restrictions or allergies. Deprived of your vision, you reconnect with your other senses and feel new sensations. Be aware of what you eat, and play and rediscover flavours, textures, temperatures. After experiencing your meal in the dark, we will show you what you’ve just eaten.

An open-minded conviviality: In this unknown environment and without your mobile phone, you live in the present moment. You completely reassess your relationship with others and the world, and communication becomes simpler and more spontaneous. Preconception and visual judgements do not exist in the dark.

A human exchange: The visually impaired waiters become your eyes, and they guide you in an intriguing world. This reversal of roles allows us to “perceive” the richness of diversity, because our guides make their difference a real strength.

With your family, friends, colleagues or for a special event, book your table on our website: https://brussels.danslenoir.com/

Opening May 2021 (subject to government guidelines) For more information, contact us following this link: https://brussels.danslenoir.com/contact-bruxelles.html
