If you’re hosting a supper club in Central London but want to hold it somewhere a little different and unexpected to help it stand out from the crowd, any one of the following choices would make for an excellent backdrop.
The 2 sleek and modern kitchens at 19 Wigmore Street are available for hire 7-days-a-week, and this includes full use of cooking equipment, crockery, glassware and cutlery, meaning you’ve already got everything you need under one roof. The adjoining dining space and bar allow you to sample your wares and entertain your guests, of whom there is space for a maximum of 100. Found in the Marylebone area, Bond Street and Oxford Circus tube stops can both be reached in little more than 5 minutes on foot.
The Studio is located in Victoria, and is one of the fashionable district’s most recently opened venues, having been newly refurbished to bring it bang up-to-date. Combining the best of the city’s industrial flair and modern luxury, the interior feels highly contemporary whilst the building itself is full of character. The main space benefits from high ceilings and good levels of natural lighting, with the added bonus of smaller breakaway areas lending the 250-capacity venue a greater level of adaptability.
Hello Love in Bloomsbury is by-and-large a blank canvas, with clean lines and a simple, white finish that allows the neutral space to be tailored to suit your own particular specifications, leaving you the scope to get creative with regards to the décor and styling. There is, of course, an existing kitchen area in which the cooking can be done, whist full glass frontage ensures a bright and airy feel throughout. The total capacity allows for up to 160 guests to attend a casual standing reception, or 50 for a more formal seated meal.
Found on a quiet street just off Shaftsbury Avenue in the charming area of Covent Garden, close to good local rail links, ICETANK is a modern and flexible studio space spread over 2 levels and adding up to 2500 square feet in all. High-end equipment on offer includes an HD projector, 2 plasma screens, a stereo system and Wi-Fi, so any production or entertainment needs should be easily met. You’ll probably be most interest to hear about the kitchen however, which is also kitted out with modern appliances and has a huge skylight allowing for plenty of natural light to flood in.
The Kitchen Library is found above Mark Hix’s much-beloved restaurant, Tramshed, and offers a truly unique setting for a chef’s table experience, making it easily one of the city’s best little hidden gems. Sitting just 12 guests, it’s ideal for an intimate gathering, where you’ll sit amongst Mark’s own personal collection of cookbooks and be able to watch as delicious food from a bespoke menu is prepared for you, before being paired with tempting cocktails and quality wines.
