Icehotel, Finland

While dinner at the Icehotel is served in a chic warm restaurant atmosphere filled with exquisite smells, the ice experience is still in full effect at the castle made of snow and ice blocks.

Before or after dinner a visit to the iconic Icebar is a must! As here at the entrance, the doormen will not ask you if they can take your coat, but rather ensure you have enough warm layers on. A key for enjoying the experience as the temperature does not rise to more than -6 °C. The chilly atmosphere will allow you to enjoy fascinating dishes in a new way. As this restaurant is in one of the tourist areas, we suggest booking a table in advance.

O. Noir Restaurant, Canada

It has been scientifically proven that when a person loses sight, all of his other senses become incredibly sharpened and more sensitive.

The owners of O. Noir Restaurant & Bar in Canada decided to give ordinary people a fresh look at their meal with a unique concept. Entering either their Montreal or Toronto locations, you directly find yourself in the world of darkness. At the entrance, you can make an order, and then plunge into complete blackness. Don’t forget to turn off your gadgets so that nothing distracts you from having an unusual experience.

A little tip! Do not rush to put on your most expensive and sophisticated outfits, because there is a chance that food may end up on your lap.

Piz Gloria, Switzerland

Rejoice, James Bond movie fans! You have a whole restaurant at your disposal, where each part is dedicated to a film series. Such an unusual concept is due to the fact that it was here that the main scenes from the films about Agent 007 were filmed.

In addition to the thematic atmosphere, you can visit an interactive exhibition.

The institution is located in a ski resort in one of the mountains of Switzerland. You can only get here by cable car, and after a meal, be sure to go skiing and feel like the hero of a Bond movie.
