Dans le Noir? is an international chain of restaurants where guests are guided and served by visually impaired staff, offering an extraordinary sensory, social and human experience driven by a refined gastronomical and oenological experience:

…A sensory journey helping us to re-evaluate our perception of taste and smell, while dining in the dark.

…A social conviviality where darkness overcomes shyness leading to an open-minded atmosphere.

…A human exchange, when, for once, the blind become our eyes to guide us into an intriguing new way of experiencing our environment.

Dans le Noir is a concept created and operated by Ethik Investment Group, an independent European group developing franchise programs and opportunities.

We work all over the world on Social Innovation, with our Event and Training and Consulting Divisions sharing a positive perception of differences with large corporations and institutions, creating value for those with disabilities.

We also now offer an additional experience in Paris with Dans le Noir? The Spa.
