Supper clubs—typically a combination of a dinner party and a restaurant outing—are a truly unique experience, a way to indulge in food and conversation with friends and strangers. Here’s our list of supper club events in the DC area that you should be looking at for this one-of-a-kind experience.
Dacha Supper Club
Set in a loft above the popular beer garden, the Dacha Supper Club seats up to 16 people. Dinners usually run on Thursdays, and tickets are available online. James Beard-nominated Chef Quinten Frye serves a five-course meal with seasonal, local produce and drink pairings. Diners connect over the fabulous food, art in the gallery space, and anything else the night brings.
