Garrick Scott  | Richie Flores | Jimmy Jackson

There is something about engaging in organic conversation in a room full of strangers who can’t see each that instills a sense of community along the group. At the end, a candle is lit and it feels as if your waking up from a collective dream, that you somehow shared with everyone around you.
— Hayley Besecker | 7 x 7 Magazine SF

What is an Airbnb Portland Blind Cafe Experience? 

The Blind Cafe Experience is an award winning positive social change dinner, discussion and music in the dark experience held entirely in 100% darkness, no blindfolds! You will literally break bread over a vegetarian dinner prepared by a local Chef, served family-style, engage in a social impact Q&A with legally blind staff and lose yourself to an intimate live music listening experience...all in 100% pure, certified organic Blind Cafe Darkness!

Blind Cafe Performing Artists:

Experience Live Music In 100% Darkness...

Rosh & the Blind Cafe Orchestra |  Special Guests

The Blind Cafe Music In The Dark Experience is something that gives music freaks a completely new way to enjoy and appreciate live music, kind of the same way that MTVs Unplugged did back in the day… but Concerts in the Dark, makes Unplugged seem like child’s play.
— The Marquee, Colorado's Best Live Music Magazine

What's on the menu? 

There are three components to The Blind Cafe Experience: 

A sensory tasting dinner  in the dark!

What's on the menu? A healthy vegan & gluten-free special sensory tasting dinner prepared by a local Chef as well as with dark chocolate, good friends, inspiring stories, live music and meaningful conversation all experienced 100% in the dark! We source local ingredients, as much as possible, from local farms designing the menu based on the season and the availability of donations from the community.

A social impact discussion in the dark!

In our award winning, positive social change community awareness discussion, you will participate in a group discussion/Q & A between the audience and our legally blind, amazing, heart-felt, blindness ambassadors. They will share their personal stories with you and you will have the chance to learn,  ask questions, and discuss their personal experiences of blindness. All this in the dark with the entire room all paying attention.
