Dans Le Noir

European

in Clerkenwell, Shoreditch & Spitalfields

The dining room is set up as normal at Dans Le Noir, but there’s one huge difference: you can’t see it. Pick your menu in the still-lit lobby (red for meat, blue for fish or green for vegetarian or vegan), and then one of the superfriendly visually impaired servers will lead you conga-line-style to your table in the pitch black.

The whole experience is bewildering, exhilarating and, dare we say, eye-opening. When you've finished, head to the bar upstairs to laugh about how quickly you abandoned your cutlery and chased mystery objects around with your fingers. The picture menu reveals just how beautifully plated each course is.

Book ahead, as there are a limited number of seatings each night.
