Dark Dining Isn’t The Time To Get Freaky

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dining in the dark may sound romantic, but it’s not necessarily a cue to get freaky.

That’s the restaurant rule from Ben Uphues, owner of Opaque: Dining in the Dark, a pitch-black dining experience designed to take your senses of taste, smell, touch, and sound to a whole new level.

According to Uphues, although dark diners feel a sense of being “unobserved” during a visit to Opaque, there are strict rules that ban any sexual hanky panky from occurring in the restaurant.

He explains, “Sex is not allowed in Opaque, and our staff is equipped with night vision goggles to ensure that doesn’t happen.”

But that doesn’t mean dark dining isn’t sensual.

Uphues says people who visit Opaque leave with a new appreciation and “profoundness” for their senses, and learn a lot from being “guided” by their all-blind wait staff.

He encourages those who are afraid of the dark to be open to the experience, and says sharply-dressed daters shouldn’t worry about staining their clothes from eating in the dark because it “doesn’t get too messy.”
