Pitch Black is a new sensory experience, but with one big twist! It's in complete darkness!

Pitch Black came to fame after the successful launch of their pop in Shoreditch late last year.  Now they're back again! In one of London's best locations. Pitch Black is located in a secret central London location, surrounded by the trendiest restaurant, theater and shopping destinations of the Capital city.

Enjoy a warm welcome reception on arrival before entering the unknown. In keeping with the same principals as before, 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 gently lit space, be formally introduced to their server and have the opportunity to familiarize 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, savory and floral treats set before them.

The session lasts for 90 minutes, but don't worry, there is a short interval. During which time, guests are presented with a palate cleanser to refresh the taste buds.

Pitch Black is a completely interactive experience.   Expect some witty banter, and a pleasant surprise once the answers are revealed to you at the end of the session.

Entry to 'Pitch Black' is strictly on a bookings only basis, where tickets may be purchased via the website. Allocated time slots of 90 minutes are available for what is a fully experimental experience.  A multi-sensory adventure unlike any other, it’s the perfect outing for big groups of friends, or couples.

With great shopping, restaurants, theaters and bars in the area, why not make a day of it. Tickets are available for £39 and are expected to go quickly. Make your booking today.

Pitch Black - Event Review

Heading to this tasting, I wasn't quite sure how to feel. After all, the thought of a sitting in a dark room with strangers and tasting mysterious drinks you didn't order is a scenario we've all actively striven to avoid. But proving there's nothing...

Lovely guys running it but very disappointed . Expensive for what it was. Booked for four cocktails but had two cocktails and two glasses of wine. I don't drink wine and wouldn't have booked it had I known. Cocktails weren't the best quality. Good concept though. visited Secret London Location on 19 May 2017

Concept was good and so were the cocktails. The wine was a waste of time as unless you were an expert, there was no way anyone could guess anything other than the colour. You could with the cocktails. Venue a bit seedy looking but ok. A little pricey for what we got but we did enjoy the different experience. Top marks for the lady who delivered the drink and had to put up with unfunny, rude and annoying drunk people. visited Secret London Location on 12 May 2017

Needs to do a fair bit more to become professional night out event - ATM just feels like a rip off (e.g. amuse bouche, no real description of wine, not fully a black room) visited Secret London Location on 12 May 2017

I love the idea and having eaten at Dans Le Nior it follows a similar sensatorial concept. I have done a lot of this kind of activity and found the team to be friendly and knowledgable, however, for the money we were served two cocktails, which were great, then it seemed like the effort had run out as we were then served two reasonably poor quality glasses of wine. If we had four different cocktails then it would have been great, we just felt slightly cheated and a little disappointed.

A lot of fun, interactive, different, worth a visit if you're up for something quirky. Cocktails were good, wine choices could have been better. Perhaps they could have offered more nibbles/canapés. Booking experience was painful. visited Secret London Location on 10 May 2017

We had a fantastic experience at Pitch Black. Dom was an impeccable host, he was extremely engaging and greatly added to the experience. Lee gave us an extremely warm welcome and put everyone at ease right from the start. The experience allowed the guests to interact with each other and we had a variety of discussions around what we thought the drinks might be, with a variety of suggestions, most of them wildly wrong! Taking away one of the senses lead to a truly unique experience and one which we would definitely do again! Our thanks goes to Lee and Dom who have designed an amazing night which you will thoroughly enjoy! Clara and Sam Clara visited Secret London Location on 21 Apr 2017

Really great experience, and the hosts were very entertaining. Perfect for a date or small group of friends. Cocktails were good an even though we were not big wine drinkers we quite like the red.

Really disappointing experience. The place smelt like strong bleach and was really off putting. The coasters were not working made with badly glow in the dark paint. Then we were given a two cocktails, they were simple, not sure if there was any alcohol at all, worse of all not experimental at all. Then we were given a piece of celery and tomato as an appetizer. Followed by the cheap quarter of the glass wines that most people didn't even finish. Not worth the money at all! Kattya visited Secret London Location on 14 Apr 2017

The experience was slightly underwhelming . We arrived and the hosts had not set up the experience so felt poorly organised which was slightly annoying as the tickets aren't cheap. All in all the experience has so much potential but didn't quite hit it on the night. visited Secret London Location on 26 Apr 2017

As I stepped up to the door of the building sign posted ‘Pitch-black event’, I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into – from the outside it is not your average bar. But as soon as I saw other couples with the same curious expressions like me, I knew I was in the right place. Upon arrival we were welcomed with a big smile and a glass of prosecco and I immediately felt I was amongst friends at a dinner party. The ‘pitch black’ event is an incredible and surprising experience. Used to always knowing what I am drinking by looking at it, it was great to experience cocktails and wines by only relying on my taste. You will be surprised by how difficult it is to guess what you’re drinking – even those cocktails you think you are very familiar with. I really much enjoyed taking the time to connect with other senses –which are sometimes neglected as sight always prevaricates. A really fun and insightful evening and a great idea for a date night.#lovepopupslondon

Such a great night - would highly recommend it and would go again! Venue was great and Dom was such a fab host. So much fun and something really different to do for a night out. Cheersthemetune visited Secret London Location on 09 Mar 2017

Brilliant date night for something relaxed but a bit different. Dom is charming and a great host. It's really interesting how hard it is to guess the drinks you're trying. Nice venue too. At first blush looks expensive, but when you think what drinks cost normally in a bar, this is actually good value (you get at least 5). Sophie visited Secret London Location on 24 Feb 2017

The space was not 100% pitch dark, but thoroughly enjoyed the evening. It is a great activity for an unusual date, or fun evening with friends! The host was really friendly and helped create a truly memorable evening AHenry visited Secret London Location on 21 Dec 2016

A very different but really enjoyable experience. Went with my girlfriend and got a little bit drunk but the host and the other people who purchased the experience were very pleasant and welcoming. I will definitely recommend this to everyone. Great night👍🏾👍🏾 Lawrence visited Secret London Location on 16 Dec 2016

Original event. Great way of discovering known and unknown cocktail flavours. The host is friendly and welcoming. The red wine happened to be corked, and in substitution we were served another prosecco, which was nice of him. We would have appreciated a more detailed explanation of flavours and smells, and why people may confound one drink with another. Guillermo visited Secret London Location on 06 Dec 2016

A fun night out! Some thing different to try with friends or as a date. Only criticism would be that the amuse bouche was not worth having but drinks are great :) Sonia visited Secret London Location on 02 Dec 2016

Nice and dark, sufficient amounts of drink confusion and excellent hosts. Two of the guests were so smashed they succeeded in knocking over the drinks before lights out but they thankfully baled before the session properly started. Would have liked even more sensory deprivation (no music). Recommended for the challenge to the tastebuds and a change to the norm. Howard visited Secret London Location on 03 Dec 2016

Great host and delicious cocktails but could be improved in a different venue - music from the adjoining bar was quite loud and there was a bit of light drifting in from the kitchen so wasn't the full sensory experience we were expecting leahbeckley visited Secret London Location on 01 Dec 2016

Positives: Good fun, nice hosts, interesting experience and great concept Negatives: Event started half an hour late, time between drinks was a little too long (four drinks in 2.5 hours) and at £48 a go it felt a little pricey Matt visited Secret London Location on 03 Dec 2016

A great test of your senses and a wonderful way to get you to think about your drink. The showmanship of our host was engaging informative and entertaining, bringing the group of strangers together for a fun filled taste adventure Charlie visited Secret London Location on 16 Nov 2016

While it was dark, it probably should also have been silent. There wasn't a real sense of sensory deprivation at all - just drinks in the dark. It was fun enough - something to do, but it really wasn't a sensation. And for the price, it wasn't an amazing night. Peter visited Secret London Location on 25 Nov 2016
