A New Mysterious Dining In The Dark Experience Has Taken Up Residence In River North

This confidential culinary experience is far from your average dinner party. 

Chicago’s brand new Dining in the Dark experience is officially here. A secret society has quietly taken up residence amidst the hustle and bustle of River North and awaits your attendance in pitch-black darkness. The new gastronomical adventure fuses mystery and culinary prowess to offer a dinner party unlike anything else.

You’ll be invited in by an enigmatic congregation of characters known as The Secret Society. As you attempt to analyze your surroundings the room will become shrouded in darkness leaving you and your remaining four senses to navigate the evening. But as your sight is temporarily allayed you will feel your other senses soar like never before.

Update: A new Halloween-inspired Haunted Dining in the Dark is taking place October 2021 and tickets are now on sale!

Eminent psychologists have been advocating dining in darkness as an amplified way to enjoy food in all of its flavor for years. Now, the chance has come to the heart of River North. Your mysterious assistants will serve you pleasantly as you dabble between mouth-watering dishes, but you’ll soon realize there is more to this evening than an enhanced eating experience.

As you begin to settle in feeling comfortable in your adopted environment, a variety of trials and tribulations will start to come your way. Having tasted the cutting-edge cuisine, you will begin to feel a sense of trust and admiration for this eclectic troupe. The experience is about to get even more enthralling as you are welcomed into The Secret Society provided you pass the required rituals.
