The Last Supperclub is a 3 week project offering 3 different menus around a theme of the end of the world (Mayans predicted that the world would end in 2012, and #Sandy, record temperatures, our lousy summer and the global domination of One Direction notwithstanding they've not been proved right - yet) Based in Worship Street, this promises to be quite an experience.
"Creative Agency, The Halo Group, Foodie Award Winners, Platterform, and one of East London's best-kept secret venues, The Yard, have partnered for a collaborative project to host a curated, imaginative dining experience set to run from 6th December to the 22nd December 2012.
Inspired by the looming Mayan prophecy which predicts the end of the world on 21st December 2012, the project, aptly named ‘The Last Supper Club’, will see the creative production expertise of The Halo Group collide with the gastronomic inventiveness of Platterform to create a feast for all senses.
The Halo Group's live festival build experience will be brought to the table to integrate creative production, building bespoke set design features to immerse diners into the lost world of The Last Supper Club. With many conflicting theories as to what the end of the world will entail, theming will see a journey of cultural influence as Eastern and Western culture come together for one last supper.
‘The Ark’, an exclusive area available for reservations, will offer experimental three-course dining, hosted by a different guest chef each week that will bring their imprint to The Last Supper Club, creating culinary theatre in an open kitchen environment. For guests that would rather opt for the cultural buzz of global street food, The Last Supper Club will feature a selection of apocalypse twists on Mayan inspired delicacies, historic Middle Eastern cuisine, and Dooms Day house-smoked slow cooked meats, all that will play part to extending the event experience.
Playing to their cultural interests and the many conflicting theories as to what the end of the world may entail, the collective are integrating a charity linked art auction, displaying work of local and handpicked creative artists to showcase their vision of what the end of the world has in store for humankind.
Drawing inspiration from historic flavour pairings and traditions, prophecy and forecasts of doom born of popular culture, Platterform have designed a series of 3 course menus in collaboration with a team of special guest chefs.
