Dining in the Dark
Enjoy a three-course meal and drinks in (almost) complete darkness.
When it comes to eating at a restaurant, everyone broadly knows what to expect. You mosey on in, sit at a table, chat with whichever wonderful person happens to be sharing the meal with you, make plenty of eye contact over wine and dinner, and spend ample time soaking in the eatery's vibe and decor. That's the general process we've all been through countless times.
Now, imagine what your dinner would be like if there were no lights. Actually, you don't need to imagine — you can simply head along to The Mix Bar's new Dining in the Dark series. There'll be food, drinks and everything else that goes along with the experience, but absolutely no illumination.
The idea behind the concept is to heighten your other senses — taste, obviously, but also smell — and allow you to experience dinner in a completely new and different way.
If you're keen, tickets cost $75 for a three-course sitting, with the Woolloongabba spot turning the lights out on select Thursdays — on August 22, September 12 and 26, and October 17 and 24.
