DANS LE NOIR ? AN UNUSUAL RESTAURANT
Dans le Noir ? invites you to dine in complete darkness, accompanied and served by unexpected guides. Enjoying dinner or lunch in pitch darkness is an original experience that allows us to re-evaluate our perception of taste by reawakening senses overwhelmed by the omnipresence of sight, to reinvigorate our relationship with the world and others and to experience a surprising encounter with something different.
A culinary and convivial experience awaits for you at the Stanhope Hotel Brussels, between the European Quarter and the Palais Royal. This convivial and surprising experience looks like a real sensory journey! First thanks to the gourmet menu composed by the Chef, Laurent Gauze, proud member of the Académie Culinaire de France, using fresh ingredients to taste with a strict selection of fine wines.
Enjoy also a surprising moment to socialize. Freed from our preconceptions and social conventions, any people next to you becomes a source of curiosity. The experience is made possible by an unexpected guide, making a visit a unique encounter with something different.
A SENSORY JOURNEY
Flavours, aromas, textures, temperatures,... you are carried away by an original, essential and celebratory culinary experience where your uncertain senses are fully awakened. Focusing our attention on taste, losing the colour of a wine and instead smelling, touching, tasting... a range of sensations that stimulate your emotions.
OPEN MINDED CONVIVIALITY
Freed from the weight of people’s gazes, preconceptions and social conventions, communication becomes simpler, authentic and spontaneous. Completely reassess your relationship with others and the world. Discussions intermingle and then deepen, bonds are forged, the spirit opens... An opportunity to meet and reflect on the way we consume or on our relationship with others.
AN ENCOUNTER WITH DIVERSITY
TASTY, REFINED CUISINE
Our gourmet cuisine is based on a rigorous selection of quality ingredients and the talent of the Chef of the Stanhope Hotel Brussels, Laurent Gauze and his team, who develop menus suitable for an unconventional experience. What we consider important is the harmony of flavours in a menu and the authenticity of the tastes in a pitch dark environment.
ALLERGIES AND DIETARY RESTRICTIONS ARE RESPECTED
