Dans Le Noir at Rydges on Swanston

Rydges on Swanston is proud to partner with Dans Le Noir, the new home to the one-of-a-kind Melbourne dining experience.

After its success around the world including Paris, London, Madrid, Barcelona, St Petersburg, Auckland, Casablanca, Dans Le Noir is now exclusively home to Rydges on Swanston, Melbourne.

With over 1.5 million diners world wide, Dans Le Noir is a dining experience unlike no other set within a completely dark room. Your vision impaired hosts replace your sight and guide you through the dining in the dark experience, set to change your perspective, create authentic conversations and have all your preconceptions disappear.

With the choice of 3 or 5 Courses, the menu is carefully curated by the Head Chef Christian Oblak daily and celebrates seasonality, unique flavours and different textures. The blind tasting caters for vegans, vegetarians and pescatarians alike, including allergies and food restrictions and can be paired with matching beer or wine.

“It is a unique experience to have a different approach of creating a menu that is particularly crafted to tap the other senses of our guests. We tend to rely on our sight most of the time so it is a challenge for my brigade and myself to create something that would arouse the curiosity of our patrons by relying on their other senses. It is all about being out of our comfort zone for both my brigade and our diners. I also believe that it is a unique opportunity to be a part of a global community of chefs within the worldwide Dans le Noir ? restaurants which fills me and my brigade with a great pride to by apart of this Melbourne Dining Experience.”
