If you are looking for an alternative night out then you have to head down to the Supperclub to see what it has in store for you....
As we walked along Acklam road, along side the Westway one could think that they were heading to an underground nightclub in New York, with a rugged exterior and big burly bouncers on the door.
If you want dinner, you have to be on a guest list...there is no walking in to see if a table is free and the arrival time is 7.30pm, as there is only 1 sitting so you can't afford to be late and miss it. So you check yourself in at the door and put your coat into the cloakroom before you are ushered into the bar area...or what could be described as the holding bay whilst The Supperclub is waiting for the diners of the evening to arrive. The bar itself is completely misleading to what is in store for you when they open the big doors intro the main room, with dark red being the theme, it is moody and seductive. This is the time to get your first drink order in of the night whilst you await to see what The Supperclub has in store for you for the evening.
After the diners have arrived and the clock strikes 8pm, 2 huge doors are opened and in contrast to the red of the bar you see the gleaming white walls and beds, yes beds, in the main room. Upon booking I would make sure that you have a bed for the evening rather than one of the few tables that are in the room, as that bed is then yours for the evening and I guarantee that you will be grateful later on in the evening.....plus how often do you ever have dinner in bed when it isn't chicken soup to make you feel well again.
As we were shown to our bed, it was shoes off and time to pump up the pillows and get comfy. There is no menu at The Supperclub so you host(ess) will ask you if you have an allergies and take your drinks order and then you are in the hands of the chef for the evening. On the evening that we were there we were presented with a delicious 4 course dinner which consisted of a chicken soup, served with a traditional Chinese soup spoon, seared salmon with scallops, venison and a chocolate treat for dessert. Now the food is truely fabulous and presented with such precision and care that it is a throughly enjoyable experience from start to finish.
BUT the highlight of your meal will be the eclectic mixture of performances that will take place whilst you are eating. The performances are never the same, so if you become a regular diner then you won't need to worry about being bored of the entertainment. When we were there...we had a pig that was a fire eater, a burlesque dancer who popped balloons to reveal her scantily clad outfit and a gymnast who took to a hop in the air and gave a fabulous performance, moving her body in ways that my boyfriend could only wish I could move mine.
After dinner has finished the party gets started and the DJ pumps up the volume so that all the diners and the later guests that are ready to dance can hit the dance floor and throw some shapes to a variety of DJ's and if your shoes are off you can even make the most o the beds and dance the night away on them.
Top Tip.....make sure you have plenty of energy to stay after dinner as the party goes on till the early hours in the morning.
