Supper club & social dining enthusiasts in London area
Just joined this community, I must say you got a sweet spot over here! :)
I will be moving to London soon and since I am a supper club afficionado, I was wondering whether there is an offline/online community for enthusiasts like me.
I know there is a tone of supper club blogs out there, but is there a reference community where all gather and/or get informed? Offline or mostly online?
Thanks in advance y'all!
When I was young, a supper club was something like a nightclub... with entertainment, meals etc. It had nothing to do with people like the ones on Come Dine With Me. I have a feeling that JeanTimbaud means groups that get together and not what I remember. Geez, I feel old at times!
There are loads in London, they've even been written up in the Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/sep/29/best-london-supper-clubs
There are also quite a few pop up dining locations these days, which I tend to hear more about - easier to review I guess.
Google will help the OP find the relevent supper club websites. Not living in London, I'm not able to make a recommendation ( the site I used to use for my part of the UK - Guestaurant.com - now seems to have disappeared.)
BrokenT - yes, it's like having strangers over to eat. I've only done dinner once at a supper club but really enjoyed it - although havnt been in a rish to go back. Here's what I thought of it back in 2011 - http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/797090
Thanks everybody for your answers!
It seems like there is a HUGE thing going on judging by visiting the links shared here. It gave me a complete overview of the scene and I will share my experiences with you as soon as I go to my first London supper!
Also, another thing I hear a lot of buzz about are food startups (?) where you can find home-cooked meals or local chefs to do that for you. People told me that Housebites (http://www.housebites.com/) is a good choice but the service appears not to be offered any more.
Any other similar web or mobile application based options suggested/tried?
Once again thanks!
