Dinners in the dark ? are coming to Geneva

With more than 2 million visitors worldwide since 2004, Dans le Noir ? is a worldwide success. Present in 8 countries and 12 cities, including Paris, London, Madrid, Bordeaux, Brussels, Strasbourg, Toulouse and Luxembourg, the eponymous group's inclusive concept "Dans le Noir ?" will open its doors in Geneva on January 20th, 2023 in partnership with The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva. Online bookings are already available on the website!

The Dinner in the Dark experience will be open to the public three nights a week, from Friday to Sunday starting at 6:45 pm. We propose a 100% surprise menu with a starter, main course and dessert with or without food and wine pairing. Throughout this unusual experience, you will be served and guided by our incredible team of visually impaired waiters-guides who will make you live a unique experience, a moment full of sharing and questioning, as much on your perception of taste as on your relationship with others. Our waiter-guides have been recruited with the help of local associations that support our project. They were then trained by our team of Dans le Noir? experts.

The Dans le Noir? experience is unique on three levels: it is an incredible sensory journey, a convivial experience, and an enlightening human exchange. Dans le Noir? dinners are much more than a simple meal; they are a true living experience. We are very excited to share this wonderful adventure with you in Geneva and look forward to seeing you there!

"What always surprises me about the "In the Dark" experience is how dependent we are on our visual sense in our daily lives. Being immersed in a completely dark environment teaches us to sharpen all our other senses. This brings us back to what is really important when we eat, taste. Working with visually impaired people, I am impressed by their incredible ability to orient themselves. It's a real-life lesson in willpower and determination; an inspiring example to follow."

Antoni von Planta - General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva
