Sensory cocktail experience to launch in Liverpool

A brand new multi-sensory experience, Pitch Black, will launch in Liverpool this November, serving up a delicious menu of cocktails in complete darkness. The concept launched in London in 2016 to much intrigue and interest, encouraging drinkers to rethink their approach to mixed drinks over the space of 90 minutes.

When it comes to food and drink, sight is often the first of our five senses that we rely on; the presentation giving us visual clues as to what we’re about to eat or drink. Take that sense away, and things get interesting! Each of our other senses are heightened to compensate and in this instance in particular, taste and smell are tested to the max. Welcome, to Pitch Black.

During pre-booked slots, guests will enter a warmly lit space. They’re then introduced to their bartender, served a glass of prosecco, and have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with their surroundings before the lights go down.

Random sensory quotes

The kitchen’s a laboratory, and everything that happens there has to do with science. It’s biology, chemistry, physics. Yes, there’s history. Yes, there’s artistry. Yes, to all of that. But what happened there, what actually happens to the food is all science.
