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.

Conclusion

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.

Pay Attention to the Ambiance

Focus your attention to the decoration inside the venue chosen. What is the architecture style and interior convey? The less the ambiance relates to the desired theme of your event, the more decoration you will need to make up for it.

Services of the Venue

Does the venue provide catering or have a kitchen? Will the venue waive the fee and charge a down payment with the cost of food per person? Venues without facilities usually have a partnership with a food provider that you might be required to use. Other venues might also allow you to bring outside food.

Will the venue provide chairs, tables, etc.? If the venue provides these items, this can save you a ton of money and time by using what they already have. Just remember to keep the theme in mind.

Layout

You will need to get a rough idea of the type of activities you plan to get. Consider the flow of the traffic and what areas of the floor will cause plenty of traffic and ill not. Do you plan to have speakers at the event and need a stage? Consider the activities to help you determine the appropriate layout.

Conclusion

Once you decide on the venue, be sure to keep your attendees. It is important to keep your guests informed with the updated details and information.
