Portland Blind Cafe Experience


126 NE Alberta

Important Venue Notes

Our Auditorium, Annex and Piano Lounge has easy wheelchair access and disabled parking. We do have some restrictions on our ballroom because it was built in 1924 and resides in the basement down some stairs.



The Blind Cafe experience 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.

You will participate in a Q&A with your blind wait staff while dining on a vegan meal, including wine and dessert, and enjoying live music by Rosh & The Blind Cafe Orchestra.

With the love and laughter of those at your table you will share a meal family-style, building friendship and community on a night you will never forget or SEE!

A portion of the proceeds from our events are donated to local organizations that improve the lives of the blind.
