They say true love is blind, right? Want to put that to the test?
In collab with speed dating company WeClick, the guys at Dans le Noir, Melbourne’s first pitch-black restaurant, are about to launch something pretty special. Australia's first ever 'Dating In The Dark' event.
Yep, that means dining with a complete stranger...in total darkness. And no, you won't get to see what they look like beforehand. The point? To meet someone in a unique sensory, social and human setting, without any superficial stuff coming into play. It's the ultimate inner beauty test. It's also the ultimate 'try not to accidentally spill wine on your date in the dark test'.
Here’s how it works. Each love bird will go on five mini-dates. You won't get to see your potential partners before or during the date (after is okay...you can't stay in the dark forever). Each date will take place at Dans Le Noir in total, pitch black, hand-in-front-of-your-face darkness. No phones allowed.
The chefs at Dans le Noir will be whipping up a special five-course, tapas-style menu to awaken your palates (best part if you ask us) and at the end of the night, you’ll be able to meet each other face-to-face. There’ll also be icebreaker games to help ease the shock, dw.
Could this mean that romance isn't dead after all? Who knows. Strictly limited spots are available though, so you better get in quick.
Where: Dans le Noir, 630 Chapel St, South Yarra
When: Thursday 20 September

Not that you need to dress nice for this one, but Melbourne's chucking a huge designer fashion sale this weekend.
