Sight is without question the most important of the five senses. In this fast moving world, our eyes are constantly working overtime. Throughout the day, our eyes have to comprehend, process and evaluate thousands of visual messages. Hence the other senses have unwillingly become less important.
When having dinner at the unsicht-Bar dark restaurant Berlin your eyes will finally be able to take a well-deserved break. By voluntarily abandoning your visual impulses you will be able to experience what wonderful work your other senses are capable of. Feel a gentle breeze. Feel the things on your table. Let your nose explore unknown horizons and experience pure taste without any visual pretence. You will feel the presence of your table partners and will be pleasantly surprised how the simplest conversation will magnify in importance. A genuine sensory rush!
On the basis of a clock the blind or visually impaired waiters explain to the guests the placement of the objects, so that they can find everything in the darkness. The fork is at 9, the knife at 3 o'clock.
When dining with us...
...you are not left alone in the dark. You will be welcomed in the gently illuminated foyer where you find the wardrobe, seating areas and bar. In the foyer you can leave your coat, decide on your meal and enjoy a drink before your experience begins...
Here you will choose your meal and beverages and receive instruction for your time in the dark. Then your personal waiter and guide will come and welcome you. Being blind or visually impaired, he/she is completely at home in the dark.
Two rules must be strictly adhered to during your time with us: First, light of any kind, e.g. from lighters or cigarettes, lit displays of watches or cellular phones are forbidden in the dark. Second, please do not attempt to move through the dark restaurant by yourself - you may get hurt or disrupt the service personnel.
Should you wish to leave the restaurant, be it for a smoke or for the bathroom, please notify your waiter. He/she will make sure to guide you safely outside.
