Sign up for the Mystery Date Night; we’ll give you a few questions to answer about yourself and allow us to “match” you with someone for a dining experience to remember; dining in the dark!  Yes, the dark!  A set time will be provided, then you arrive at the restaurant and one of the servers will direct you to your table where your mystery date will be waiting…only thing is that the room is totally dark, black in fact, and you’ll only get to know each other over dinner and conversation – how fun is that?  Are you brave enough?

Together you will experience food, drink and conversation like never before - without sight!  "It's a sensual dining experience like no other!"; "When you eat food in the dark, your remaining senses are heightened to savour the smell and taste of food." After an hour or two in complete darkness with your date you will gain a better understanding of what it's like to be blind - just like the restaurant's entire wait staff.

If things go well, and you want to carry on, we will provide you with a couple of complimentary Rainbow Martini’s in the Village – after that the rest is up to you!

Sign up now for this FUN and ADVENTUROUS Mystery Date in the Dark! – if you’re a match we’ll write about your story in our Rainbow High Blog on OutTV.
