After eight years in business, Nox - Dine in the Dark may be calling it a day. The Beach Road restaurant is known for its unique concept, which lets guests dine in complete darkness while being guided by visually impaired servers.
Nox has alluded that the impending closure is due to a lease renewal dispute with its landlord. In an emotional announcement sent to the press this morning (May 7), the restaurant said: “It is with great sadness that we today announce an uncertain future of NOX - Dine In The Dark after eight years in operation as our landlord is disputing the validity of our renewal clause and has demanded we vacate the premises by the end of June 2021.”
In the announcement, Nox’s owner Jesper Gustafsson shared that his team is “currently communicating with our landlord and hopefully this can be resolved so that we can continue our operations”. He also voiced that “it’s extremely disappointing to be faced by this situation as we have battled through a very difficult period of lockdown and social distancing during the past 12 months”.
