“From a pitch-black setting, night vision equipped waiters and the thrill of experiencing 5-star gourmet cuisine without your sight – Noire Dubai, awarded Best Experimental Restaurant in the Middle East by the prestigious BBC Good Food Awards, brings you one of the top experiences in Dubai and a culinary adventure unlike anything else in town”

The collaboration

Berger Paints in collaboration with Noire, Highlights Arabia’s Splendour in a Unique Social Awareness Campaign! This latest campaign celebrates the unique culture and traditions of the Middle East, its timeless landscape, and the national pride of its people. This newly launched initiative is part of Berger Paint’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative which adopts a unique approach to ‘see’ Arabia through colors.

Berger Paints have created web-series, that are a set of 2 minutes long films, woven around an intensely emotional and heartwarming narrative, in Arabic with English subtitles. This features landmark structures and geographical landscapes, including deserts, wadis, creeks and beaches, the web-series further highlights the journey of a visually impaired young girl with her grandfather, her ‘Jiddoo’. Through the journey, Jiddoo connects heritage, culture, and landscape with colors through verbal narration, feel and touch. The films not only connect with the emotions of the viewers but also help to demystify that people with visual disability can also enjoy and experience physical and natural beauties present around them through their special sensory powers.

Experience at ‘Noire’ (french word for ‘Black’)

Great dining should always be an adventure for your taste buds, but what about your other senses?

Prepare to walk into Noire and savor every flavor, texture, and scent as you explore Noire’s finest culinary surprises dish after dish. Priced at AED 325 per person, this exclusive 1 ½ hour Dubai dining experience includes a surprise 3-course gourmet menu with paired beverages, and a reception after [in the light]to discuss the featured menu with the chef and restaurant manager. In order to ensure an exclusive and personalized experience, guests will be led to their table in a private restaurant setting that is cloaked in complete darkness, escorted by servers wearing night vision goggles.

This is an experience everyone must have at least once in their life! You will end up having dishes that you never thought you’d have. For example; I have never tried foie gras and I actually ended up having it with a dash of coffee and, I’m not a fan on Salmon at all, but guess what? I loved the Salmon dish that was served! It is next to impossible to provide 100% accurate information on your dietary preferences while booking at Noire. We would usually only end up stating the obvious, but then what turns up at your table… is a mystery on its own.

Book a blind date ( 😆 ) or table with your special someone, guest or group of friends to ‘see’ dining in a new ‘light’ and have fun like never before 😉

Never thought I’d dine in pitch darkness for 1.5 hours straight (without using my phone) until yesterday. It is one of the weirdest things I’ve ever done and not quite sure I’d do it again. During your reservation, you tell em your dietary preferences. I personally feel it’s impossible to let someone know 100% what you don’t eat since I anyway ended up eating stuff I thought I’d never eat (and missed it out in my preferences list). The twist? I loved what I ate! When you don’t see what you’re eating, you actually value what’s on your plate by 2 folds. #NoireDubai @FairmontDubai undoubtedly makes you value your eyesight and power of smell by the end of it. On a side note, if you go on a #BlindDate, you cherish the moment and conversations first, and looks at the end. Priced at AED399 (wine included) this is an experience you want to take with you for the rest of your life. PS: you get to see what you ate at the end with the #chef ?. Here's my amazing dessert with chocolate mousse, chocolate sand, figs, salted caramel icecream and truffle whiskey chocolate balls ? #ColoursOfArabia #DiningInTheDark #FairmontDubai
