La Vineria by Noi

La Vineria By Noi

Apartment 24

Apartment 24

Apartment 24 is a thoughtfully curated supper club in Melbourne that doesn't skimp out on any details, from beautiful flower arrangements to thoughtfully arranged seats. Hosting dinners in both Sydney and Melbourne, Elikia Cardot started hosting these supper clubs due to Sydney feeling very 'cliquey' and finding it hard to make new friends.

Apartment 24 brings likeminded individuals together through good wine and great food. You need to DM their Instagram page to apply, and then if accepted, you'll be given 24 hours to accept their RSVP. If you don't, it will be passed onto the next person. This supper club is the perfect opportunity to make new friends and go outside of your comfort zone!

Henry Home 

Sitting pretty above Henry Sugar, Rathdowne Street's friendly neighbourhood wine bar and restaurant is Henry Home, a beautifully self-contained 3-bedroom apartment that's been lovingly restored to give an experience both elevated and homely, modern and vintage.

An added perk if you're a local and aren't planning a weekend getaway to Melbourne, is that on occasion the space will transform into a supper club dining experience to remember. Intimate and convivial, this fine stay transforms into a private event space, that bustles with friendly, knowledgeable people, likeminded diners and irresistible food and wine. 

Host your next special event in this unique and beautiful space, with packages that range from quixotic private dinners for six through to a raging cocktail canape parties for up to 35. Indulge in a private chef and host (Henry Sugar co-owners Chef Mike Baker and Dan Mason), adding a true touch of Melbourne magic to any event. Whether private or corporate, the versatile function packages on offer at Henry Home will adapt to your needs.

296-298 Rathdowne Street, Carlton North

Club Sup

Club Sup

Your cup will be filled in more ways than one after dinner at Club Sup, a warm and inviting supper club hosted by Sophie McIntyre. All you’re asked to bring is an empty stomach and an open mind as you sit down with a dozen strangers to share delicious food, drink interesting wine from local labels and forge new friendships.

Seeking to build a sense of real connection and community in our digitally-disconnected age, McIntyre expertly prompts conversation as share plates roll out and the wine keeps pouring. Be sure to check out Club Sup's website for all of their upcoming events and lcoations.

Enter Via Laundry

Enter Via Laundry

Not even Michelin-starred restaurants can lay claim to having thousands on their waitlist, but that’s exactly what happened when Helly Raichura showcased her thrilling regional Indian cooking on Masterchef a few years ago. Back then she was operating a tiny 10-person dinner club out of her own home (hence the name) while juggling a day job. Now, the operation has moved into its own digs in Carlton North, with Raichura accepting 20 guests each night to share food and stories in a beautifully serene, art-filled space. The bold, flavour-packed menu at Enter Via Laundry regularly changes, maintaining a sharp focus on a particular region at any one time.

Pasta Mama/P Mami

Pasta Mama

Jenna Holmes’s travelling supper club is inspired by the laidback trattorias of Sardinia, where locals can easily spend all day chatting with friends and family over simple and seasonal food – no menu or wine list needed.

Pasta Mama embodies that joyful, intentional chaos, with guests crunching into fresh bruschetta, serving each other saucy strozzapreti and spooning tiramisu straight out of the platter. Holmes is an expert vibes curator too, so you can expect a highly photogenic setting bursting with colourful plants, mismatched ceramics and florals while bouncy Italo disco rings out.



Clandes.dine might just be Melbourne’s most secretive supper club. Host Tim McNamara selects a diverse guest list from expressions of interest received through the club’s Instagram, with guests only receiving the location and menu on the day. If you’re lucky enough to be chosen, you’ll be asked to merely contribute to costs (not profit) before being welcomed into McNamara’s cosy loft for an engaging evening of socialising, locally supplied food and drinks.

The word-of-mouth supper club is rumoured to have a waiting list that features sports stars, chefs, artists and TV personalities, so prepare to put your best foot forward in your DM.

Gruel Club

Gruel Club

This ‘experimental’ supper club offers an alternative approach to dining and hospitality, asking its guests to dive into social and cultural awareness over a shared meal. Gruel regularly partners with chefs looking to express their creativity, meaning every menu is completely different (although there is a focus on vegan and vegetarian food). One thing is for sure – you’ll have both your culinary and intellectual horizons broadened by the end of the night.
