Secret supper clubs and underground restaurants have slowly begun to gain popularity in Vancouver. Allowing guests to escape from the typical restaurant world, a secret supper club is typically held in someone’s home out of their kitchen. Fresh, local food is featured for a nominal fee, but the location and the dining experience are what makes it priceless.
The Swallowtail Supper Club joins other underground dining experiences, including 12B and NFA (No Fixed Address). But, what makes the Swallowtail Supper Club stand out is its themed pop-up restaurant and foraging experiences.
Created by Chef Robin, The Swallow Tail Secret Supper Club is “fine dining in the most unlikely places”, and your guide to the “best gourmet experience that British Columbia has to offer”. The club regularly hosts food tours that has guests foraging for their own dinner with mushroom hunting and fishing trips for local Dungeness crab.
They also create gourmet experiences for groups that make dining out more than just about a meal. In December, Chef Robin is organizing a delightfully themed Murder Mystery dining adventure.
The location for the murder mystery: “The Last Supper” is a secret until the ticket is purchased, but it is being held from December 5-8th at a secret juice joint in the forest. You and the other guests are given the opportunity to find out “whodunnit” (although, YOU might have done it!).
Tickets to the murder mystery dining experience cost around $115 each and feature a buffet feast and entertainment for the evening (sleuthing!)
If you’re not interested in solving a murder mystery with your desert, you can sign up for the Swallow Tail Secret Supper Club newsletter, which keeps you informed about all of their invite-only pop-up restaurants, dining events, and foraging feasts.
