NOCHE: Dine in the Dark Manila has brought in the concept of dining in absolute darkness in Metro Manila. It might sound preposterous to some while interesting to some. Despite that, we’ve come up with our reasons why we should dine in the dark at least once in our lives.
5 Reasons Why Dine in the Dark
1. Have Enhanced Senses
Since you will be constrained from seeing anything, you will solely rely on your remaining senses which are touch, sound, smell, and taste. Fully using those senses from time to time helps in sharpening it similar to an acquisition of a skill through practice. Basically, having an enhanced sense enables you to get the most out of your daily life.
2. Guaranteed Mealtime Socialization
Noche Dine in the Dark requires their guests to put phones, watches. and anything that could possibly emit light in a secure locker area before entering the dark room. This means no distractions from taking photos and going on social media. Therefore, you can have that long talk you’ve been longing for.
3. Taste Buds Challenge
The menu is set for Noche Dine in the Dark which they call the “Mystery Menu.” All you need to do is let them know your preference for food and your food restrictions.
Your taste buds will definitely be challenged as you try to determine the dish you’re eating. This is because Noche Dine in the Dark only reveals the dishes after the dark dining experience with a detailed menu.

4. Feel Empathetic
Noche’s “darkness experts” are actually our local Filipinos who are visually impaired, they are well-prepared to guide and assist with all the needs of the guests.
As you are guided by them and you have the dining experience, you become aware of how it feels like not having a sense of sight. You will further understand their plight and maybe you end up supporting Blind, Inc., the partner of Noche.
5. Memorable Experience
It is one unique gastronomic journey that will be enlightening. Additionally, you get to have quality time with your loved ones or your companions. Just no hanky panky business in the dark, all right?
