Supper Clubs are a cross between a restaurant and a dinner party. With supper clubs, you will get the informal domestic set up with the benefit of a quality restaurant service. This means you will have no cleaning, cooking, table set up or clearing up. In this guide, we will help you prepare for your visit at your first Supper Club.
Here are 4 tips on how to make the most out of your experience.
Dress to Impress
While we believe that you should wear whatever you are comfortable in wearing, it doesn’t hurt to add a little sparkle. Some Supper Club guests even like to make their events a black tie event while others go for a casual setting.
BYOB – Bring Your Own Booze
Most Supper Clubs don’t have an alcohol license. While this may sound like an inconvenience, this is actually a great opportunity to pick and choose your alcohol beverage. The same goes for soft drinks as most supper clubs do not have a large fridge to contain a large selection. Also, keep in mind that supper clubs often corkage fee for alcohol and want to cover the cost of glass.
Show Up On Time
There will not be readily available chefs that will cook a hot plate the moment you arrive. The Supper Club host will have the dinner prepared by the time of the event and not a moment sooner. This means you should not arrive earlier than expected. This will put the host in a difficult position.
Be Cautious of Cancellations
Do not cancel your event. If you must, do so at least 48 hours before the scheduled event. The Supper Club host will have already prepared for the event. It is not to be confused with a regular restaurant as the items the purchased cannot be sold the next day.
For many hosts, it is no problem to wander around the venue. However, it is important to be respectful of the space and not to make any critical comments. Instead, try lending a helping hand.
