Drink in the dark! A pitch black bar is opening in Covent Garden

Fancy drinking in the dark? This is for you…

A Pitch Black bar is opening in Covent Garden, where the lights will go off as the drinks pour!

After starting as a pop up in Shoreditch last year, Pitch Black are back with a permanent home at ‘No Such Place’ offering a 90 minute blind tasting experience.

Being billed as the ‘perfect first date spot’… It’s a chance to focus on flavour and not just the aesthetic of your drink.

Leaving slightly more drunk and dizzy than you entered, you’ll first be put into a dimly lit room, with bubbles.

Then, the lights will go down and you’ll get to judge the drinks on their taste rather than looks… Interesting!
“Pitch Black is a new experiential, blind tasting of cocktails and wines, but with one BIG twist! It’s in complete darkness!
It challenges the way you view your drinks, quite literally.” says the site.

The 90-minute blind tasting will see guests sip on a pre-set selection of ‘5 libations’.

Consisting of bubbles on arrival, 2 mouth-watering cocktails, an amuse bouche to cleanse the palate, followed by 2 aromatic wines, to be drunk in absolute darkness, you’ll never look at drinks in the same way again…

Book tickets online on their site here, to visit Pitch Black @No Such Place, 68A Neal Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2H 9PA

You bring the rum, I'll bring the raspberries. Perfect daiquiris all round.
