If you’re looking to spice things up a bit tonight and go on a romantic adventure, try having dinner in the dark at Dans Le Noir.
About the experience: You’ll eat in absolute darkness – mobile phones and devices and gadgets that produce light must be left outside. You will be physically guided to your table and served by visually impaired staff. The idea is to raise awareness about blindness and turn the tables on society’s attitudes to disability. You’ll have to put all of your faith in the staff, who are seen as disadvantaged in the outside world, but have the upper hand here by knowing their way around every inch of the restaurant.
The restaurant is located in the Sokos hotel on Vasileostrovskaya Island. The receptionists speak English, so booking a table is no issue.
