Boston’s first dark dining experience

This event has all the makings of the most unique dining experience you’ll ever have. You’ll dine in a Back Bay or Beacon Hill mansion; enjoy a full course dinner as well as inspiring music and a story that ties it all together.

Dining in the Dark is a dining experience for all your senses….except one!

This one-of-a-kind dining, eating will blindfolded experience will be a combination of fine food, inspiring music, and a story that leads you and your team on a journey and ties everything together. With the complete loss of vision- and the resulting heightening of the other four senses – an evening of Dining in the Dark is an extraordinary culinary adventure. Work with your team to guess what you are eating, participate in tabletop team building challenges, and focus on the food and each other.

Consistently people rank Dining in the Dark much higher than their initial expectations.


Arrive to a warm welcome including cocktails, a few words of orientation, and a menu viewing (only if you must)

You are gently guided through an extraordinary blindfolded dining experience (peeking optional). Savor the sensuous flavors, smells, sounds and textures. Challenge your palate to discover the mysteries of the menu.

Dinner and guided tour concludes.
