Noire at Fairmont Dubai, the only venue in the region where guests can embark on a 5-star gourmet cuisine journey in a pitch-black dining room, has relaunched.

The experience is available from Thursday to Saturday. The restaurant facilitates only one seating per night, commencing promptly at 7:30pm. Priced at AED 360 per person (including soft beverages) and AED 399 per person (including beverage pairing), this 1 ½ hour dinner includes a three-course menu, and a reception (in the light) to discuss the featured menu with the chef.

This experience will turn the old saying of ‘first (visual) impressions count’ entirely on its head by encouraging guests to re-evaluate their perceptions through a different thought process. Participants will experience a complete loss of vision for 1 ½ hours and will put their trust in the hands of the culinary team.

Noire at Fairmont Dubai features a fully fitted and blackened out restaurant setting, where servers will use night-vision goggles to help guests on their way throughout the restaurant, and assist diners with their multi-sensory experience.

In line with the UAE government’s safety guidelines, Noire will have temperature checks and social distancing of two metres between tables.

“The prototypes of strong sensation: blazing lights, red earth, blue sea, mauve twilight, the flake of gold buried in the black depths of the cypress; archaic tastes of wine and olive, ancients smells of dust, goat dung and thyme, immemorial sounds of cicada and rustic flute.”
