In 2016 the founders of Social Dining Club set out to create a network of likeminded people, all looking egerly for social exprience that go beyond the repetative range of restaurantes, the basic bore of bars and the mediocre moods of mainstreem members clubs. It was soon evidant that this would not at all be a tough task, and within days a substancial number of membership applications had been gathered. With the networks on-board and growing, the founders began to partner with exceptional private homes and venues, to curate and create delectable social dining experiences. Since then the fabulous members have grown and the private events have become even more entertaining.


Simply put, our story and the journey we have undertake with our members, is one of food, friends and fun; the foundations of the most memorable moments. As we build on these pillars and curate social dining experience outside of the mediocre and mundane, we aim to introduce our beautiful members to an exceptional new world of social engagements.

Centre point letters

Since 1966, the glowing, three-metre high lettering atop the 34-storey Centre Point tower has stood as a recognisable and orientating symbol of London. Yet when development began in 2015 to turn the building from office space to luxury flats, the letters had to fall and art consultant Patrick Morey-Burrows was approached to preserve them. Each was given to an artist to appropriate and photographer Christoffer Rudquist shot them at various stages of their reinvention. The finished letters will be exhibited in St Giles Square, before being auctioned, with the proceeds going to the homeless charity Centrepoint. And so London’s heraldic lettering lives on: no longer for a location, but for a powerful cause.
