About the event

‘Happy New You' was the first Mike’s Table pop up event of the year - and what a way to kick things off!

This time round we decided to hold our pop up supper club in Cafe Allpress in Dalston, East London.

Guests on both evenings were treated to a range of delicious dishes - from French Onion Soup to Sticky Toffee Pudding, the chefs were on fire!

As usual, we’d like to thank the excellent Cafe Allpress for the space, the volunteers for their time, and the wonderful guests for making it such a special evening to remember

New Look

You may have noticed from the photographs that we tried out a new look and feel for Mike’s Table. All our guests seemed to love it!

Many thanks to Perq Studio - Laura and Nikki - for volunteering to help us grow but still keep the same spirit we started with. Watch this space!


How do your supper clubs work?

Our events are unique - not only do we create incredible dishes with food that would have otherwise gone to waste, we also ensure that for every paying guest, one ticket is given to a person who would benefit from a night out - for free.

We work through charities and organisations supporting people who are socially isolated for many reasons.

If you think you know someone who might benefit from a night out for free - apply here.
