Valentine’s Day Dining in the Dark

Dining in the Dark Boston

Let us take you on a journey of the senses in one of the most romantic and unique dinners you will ever experience, featuring a delectable five-course menu at the Hampshire House on Valentine’s Day 2018!

Dining In The Dark Boston

Once blindfolded let your senses take over and you’ll enjoy the smells, the sounds, the tastes and the textures in a way you never thought possible. When the sense of touch, hearing, taste and smell are heightened, food, drinks and dinner conversation become a brand new adventure!

Savor the secret five-course meal at the famous Hampshire House, a turn-of-the-century mansion on historic Beacon Hill where generations of Bostonians and their guests have wined, dined, and danced the night away.

The concept of purposefully eating in complete pitch-black dark originated with Jorge Spielmann, a blind clergyman from Zurich. When guests ate dinner at the Spielmann house some would wear blindfolds during their meal to show solidarity with their host and to better understand his world. What Spielmann’s sighted guests found was that the blindfolds heightened their sense of taste and smell and made their dining experience more enjoyable.

So please join us this Valentine’s Day at the Hampshire House in Boston as we offer a special Dining in the Dark Boston event to celebrate the romantic occasion.

The Hampshire House on Beacon Hill

Boston, 84 Beacon St, MA 02108, United States

The Hampshire House is a turn-of-the-century mansion on historic Beacon Hill, where generations of Bostonians and their guests have wined, dined, and danced the night away.

Designed and built in 1910 by the society architect, Ogden Codman, for fellow Brahmins Bayard and Ruth Thayer, the five story Georgian revival townhouse was lavished with Italian marble, carved oak paneling, crystal chandeliers and tall Palladian windows. Those windows not only looked out onto the Victorian elegance of the Boston Public Garden, but they also looked into the social world of Boston’s elite, as 84 Beacon Street became one of the most fashionable salons in the city. Gentlemen in top hats and tails and ladies in silk and satin ascended the grand staircase to the heart of the house for gala evenings in the Ballroom and Library.

The Hampshire House acquired its name during World War II when the Thayer family sold the building. It was then leased as a small private luxury hotel to the owners of the Lincolnshire Hotel on Charles Street. They dubbed the mansion the Hampshire House (Lincolnshire and Hampshire were both English counties).

Thomas A. Kershaw has been the owner of the Hampshire House since 1969. Since then, the Hampshire House has been the ideal choice for special occasions. Its interior decor gives an aura of those grand days when the Thayer’s entertained in their magnificent mansion on Beacon Hill. Now you, too, can be a part of history at the Hampshire House.
