London Supper Clubs

Dall-E:  friendly supper club with guests in their 20s & 30s all sitting around a table enjoying regional Indian food

What is a Supper Club?

Definitions can vary, but essentially it is a pre-booked, often pre-paid, set menu meal, sometimes in the chef's home, and often with communal seating.  Guests go along and enjoy a meal, and often meet new people.  Guests are usually young, and it is usually a memorable night out.

It is very different from the restaurant experience (people are all served at the same time, no bill arrives at the end of the meal), and also from the 'pop-up' experience (supper clubs are almost always for one night only).

It is easy to join as a single, a couple, or a group of friends.  You generally get to meet the chef, hear about the cuisine, and sometimes see the food being cooked.  Most chefs are also open to arranging private events if you have a big group.
