I have often heard fabulous rumors about an indulgent night spot in Amsterdam, Supperclub, and had always wanted to experience the delights for myself, but not having the time nor the money I jumped at the chance to review the London version that has recently graced Notting Hill with its presence.
We were told to arrive at 8pm sharpish and ushered into a underground bar for cocktails and wine - it's all very mysterious and you aren't told what's happening or when. All of a sudden at 8.30pm prompt the huge hidden sliding doors swoosh open revealing an authentically fabulous all-white room on two levels ringed with raised bedding platforms covered in white mattresses and cushions.
We were led to our seat by a quirky waitress in a skimpy body con number and told to take our shoes off. We hopped on the beds and got comfy. The beds are positioned around a central area which turns into a dance floor later on. It's set out in a way where you can get a good look at everything going on. There is no menu, it's a set dinner so you don't know what you are having until it's put in front of you. We were treated to a Thai green curry soup, followed by fillet of beef with a red wine sauce and for dessert, cheesecake. The chef is the former head chef of the OXO-tower and the food was to die for.
Inbetween the food beautiful young people entertain you with exotic performance art and cutting-edge cabaret. Meanwhile masseuses come and offer massages inbetween courses. It sets the tone that anything can happen here- and it certainly does!
I can not recommend this night enough, not only for the food, but the whole experience really does make it a special evening that is sure to by a topic of conversation for weeks after!
