Join us at the only supper club in London wherein being an idiot is seen as a charming advantage. Drop a topic you know everything about into a hat and be seated next to someone who is a total idiot about it. Find friendship (and possibly romance) in your mutual strangeness.


1. DROP YOUR FAVOURITE TOPIC INTO A HAT: From Houdini's greatest tricks to Victorian bicycles, no interest is too weird.

2. DRAW A TOPIC FROM THE HAT AND MEET YOUR DINNER COMPANION: You'll be an idiot in comparison to vastly superior knowledge.

3. SWAP SEATS WITH THE PERSON TO YOUR RIGHT: Now it's your turn to educate them on your wonderful topic of interest.

4. STAND UP AND SHARE THE WISDOM: You have 3 minutes to sum up all you have learnt.


As you stun and startle with your debonair wit and charming conversation, you can snack from our delicious platters which will be available throughout the evening. Please note drinks are not included.

Platters are to share

Salt and pepper calamari & aioli, sticky glazed BBQ ribs, harissa chicken skewers, halloumi & roasted veg kebabs, homeade falafel & tzaziki dip, served with thick hand cut chips and chipotle ketchup

Vegetarian alternatives are available please just let us know!
