After a series of sold out events in recent years, the Austin Blind Café is back by popular demand. The Blind Cafe is an award winning community awareness concert, discussion, and dinner in the dark where people connect, learn, and break bread together. The aim is to inspire and initiate positive social change in the lives of everyone involved in the experience, using the concept of darkness to break down social norms that typically exist as barriers.


All dinner events are designed to change the way you “see” the world leading over 12,000 people through the dark. In addition to a vegan dinner prepared by a local chef along with wine and dessert, attendees will have the chance to participate in a Q&A with their waiters, all of whom are legally blind, about issues related to visual impairment. Hearts and minds will be opened as attendees enjoy a meal without the sense of sight, explore spatial awareness in darkness, and indulge in unencumbered music listening without the distraction of visual conditioning, social etiquette, or cell phones.


The Blind Café offers a unique ticket pricing structure—a suggested cost of $85 or more per ticket, with a maximum cost of $195. The margin from ticket sales above $85 goes towards helping The Blind Cafe create more positive social change in the world. Student tickets are $55 and senior tickets are $65.
