Fifteen years in the making, Ultraviolet is an avant-garde restaurant in Shanghai, China created by Chef Paul Pairet. Ultraviolet is an immersive, multi-sensory experience that engages not only your taste buds, but also your eyes, nose, and ears. Each course is paired with a special beverage, a sound, scent, and interior design.
The 22-course dinner for just 10 guests, is choreographed to stimulate all five senses. Dinner starts at 7:30 p.m., after guests have been driven to the secret, windowless location – a former warehouse in central Shanghai.
Once seated, giant projections of red brick walls appear and start to shift upwards quickly, creating the illusion that the entire room is sinking. This is followed by the sound of cracking stone, a starry sky, lit purple candles, and the ringing of a church bell.
Waiters then appear to serve an appetizer – a frozen wasabi-flavored apple juice ball. Each course is then served.
Guests enjoy steamed lobsters as images of crashing waves are projected onto the walls, the refreshing smell of ocean sprayed from the diffusers and the sound of waves played through the speakers. A course of sea bass is served with images of colorful tropical fish swimming around the room.
