Host a Supper Club

Vintage dinner party

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?

Visit  the Supper Club Fan Group to find a supper club near, or check out Grub Club which also has some great info for hosting your own.

Not game for dinner at someone’s house but still want to meet new people over dinner? Try Table Crowd instead.

Bon appetite!
