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 four-course meal at Salem’s Colonial Hall at Rockafellas, a grand ballroom that was formerly a church, then a bank and then the largest jewelry store in the country. Truly a cornerstone of Salem history, the hall features vaulted ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors and gracious balconies.
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 fall at the Colonial Hall at Rockafellas in Salem as we offer two special Dining in the Dark events just in time for Halloween.

Your team did a fantastic job..., all of the customers, as well as all of the hoteliers, were happy and the timing was dead on which was important. It was very well received and was fun, funny and perfectly engaging. Your information was distributed and well received. I know of one meeting planner who is already pitching you to her clients and heard others talking about how they would like to in the future. Thanks very much for working with us. I will look forward to connecting with you again soon!
I just wanted to thank you for your help with Clue Live! Everyone had a great time. The actors were great and Christian was absolutely amazing!
The event was a huge success and our client was happy so I am very happy. Shannon was absolutely great to work with!
I wanted to reach out to you and let you know what an AWESOME time all of us had at today’s performance of MobFellas! The cast was so personable and kept us engaged and included throughout the show! I am only hearing great feedback from all those that attended. So once again thank you again for helping with getting this pulled together on such short notice!!!
We were thrilled with our CharActors! The Mad Hatter was truly mad; I heard him throughout our grounds and building making the day for unsuspecting children, parents and our staff! Our staff is still talking about him! Alice was terrific and was a great surprise to the kids as they came around the corner to see her. Our thanks to all of you; we had a very successful afternoon!
I went there with a group of 6 friends this past Saturday, and by the end of it I had a pounding headache, a sore throat, and throbbing cheeks from laughing so damn hard for so damn long. I’m super impressed, and am SO EXCITED to see your other shows too. Well done guys!
They had a blast and we will most likely do this again next year! Fabulous!!
