Pitch Black Bar
Pitch Black is a new boundary-pushing concept that challenges the way you view your drinks, quite literally.
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 pallet, followed by 2 aromatic wines, to be imbibed in absolute darkness.
The project boldly aims to shift the focus solely on the facets of flavour, aroma and mouthfeel as opposed to presentation. Dismiss any fears you have about being cast into a disorienting dark den, as guests will initially enter a warmly lit space, be formally introduced to their server and have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with their surroundings before the lights go down. At lights out, staff and patrons are invited to remain communicative, discussing the festival of herbaceous, sweet, savoury and floral treats set before them.
