Like the sound of meeting new people? – without having to leave your front room? – and while charging for the privilege? Sounds like you should think about hosting a Supper Club.
Pick a date, set a menu, invite some people, charge for dinner, et voila: you have your very own supper club.
Supper clubs are a version of pop-up restaurants which you can host in your own dining room. And they’re a growing phenomenon. A great way to meet people and give you an opportunity to show off your cooking skills to some appreciative guests, a supper club could even be the start of a new business, like it was for east London’s The Clove Club (read their top tips for starting your own supper club here).
Whereas pop-up restaurants are generally put on in public spaces and designed to cater to larger numbers of people (like amazing social enterprise Mazi Mas, a roaming restaurant which creates jobs for migrant and refugee women) supper clubs can be put on by anyone, anywhere and for a set number of people.
If you like the idea of supper clubs but aren’t so hot in the kitchen, why not consider a supper club instead of a standard restaurant next time you go out?
Not game for dinner at someone’s house but still want to meet new people over dinner? Try Table Crowd instead.
