No stress! Here are a few unique suggestions ranging from dining experiences to more active ones. They are all here in Singapore and there’s something for everyone so I hope I’ve saved you hours of google searching and you get those sexy date nights in the diary.
Dining and Drinks
If you’re looking for a mysterious night of intimate conversation and beautifully crafted food, then this “dine in the dark” experience could be for you. Nox is a multi-sensory dining experience that takes you on a unique journey in total darkness to get your taste buds going, enhancing smell, touch, taste and sound.
You are guided by visually impaired and blind individuals that serve you a 3 course meal crafted by the chef de cuisine and his team complimented with a glass of fine wine or a signature cocktail.
Enjoy the feeling of a quiet dinner where you and your partner can connect and have the luxury of no distractions all while you tease your palate and attempt to not spill sauce down yourself.
