You've probably heard of blind dating and have perhaps even been on one yourself. But how about experiencing a romantic dinner with your significant other or complete stranger in actual darkness?

The global phenomenon of dining in the dark was originally created in Switzerland by a blind clergyman. The absence of sight awakens senses and enables participants to completely reevaluate their perception of taste and smell. And in this case, connect at a deeper level without filters, judgement or swiping. French organisation Dans le Noir (In the Dark) has been hosting eyeless events at Rydges Auckland since March last year, including full-course sensory feasts, wine tasting and stand-up comedy.

The third Dating in the Dark event will see participants guided by blind hosts into a pitch black room, where they will be treated to a surprise three-course menu. The first in, first served experience is open to singles as well as those who would like to bring a loved one.

The session has the option to add complementary love life coaching courtesy of The Soul Mate Coach.
