The private supper club experience is one where you RSVP for a meal with a host who would be cooking for the evening. Though the term is known as ‘supper club’, occasionally the meals are also held during lunch or dinner. The host/chef would be preparing the meals for a set number of guests at a predetermined location, usually his or her home. Guests would also typically pay for the meal in advance prior to the evening of the meal itself.

The culture of private supper clubs is more common in Argentina, Canada, Hong Kong, France, South Africa and the US. Though there are only a handful of private supper clubs in Malaysia, it is slowly gaining in popularity and here are 7 little known private supper clubs in Malaysia that you should pay a visit to.
