Bringing like minded people together to enjoy great food and drink in unusual, private and reclaimed spaces.
Dinner and dancing from 7pm till as late as we are allowed.
It’s a weekend long supper club for groups of friends in the home of Jonny Jefferey, a trained chef who quit the kitchen to work front of house for Mark Hix, Brindisa, Harvey Nicholls & The Groucho Club. A weekend with Jonny is a real treat; great food, drink and hospitality in his beautiful home.
Mmmmmmm…. I don’t know if I have a favourite guest... but I love it when I see people return to maybe their fourth or fifth Dinner Dance, or see someone who we know has been to a number of our different parties. It feels like we have fans!
All of our food is cooked for the season. We call up our suppliers, find out what’s good, and write our menus around the best produce we can find and afford.
The support we had in Manchester was amazing. We fed 300 people over three nights, without any advertising of marketing, just letting the word of mouth get around. Our guests in Manchester were sharing food with people they don’t know straight away… in London we still have to train our guests how to share!
We were approached by Chris Coco (DJ / Music Producer) about doing a compilation CD and I loved the idea. Music is as much a part of DDC as the food, drink and spaces we use and it seemed a great way of celebrating that.
There is an imaginary journey that runs through the CD, starting with the excitement of arriving somewhere you don’t know, eating some canapés, enjoying dinner with friends, and then finding yourself dancing on a table after a few too many cocktails. We picked tracks that help you along that journey.
Look out for our summer picnic and BBQ (dates announced soon), and until then, you can see us at Back in 5 Minutes, our restaurant on Brick Lane which is open Wed to Sat every week.
