The Art House Supper Club is Back!

The Art House Supper Club is back for 2017!

We celebrated the return of the Art House Supper Club on Saturday the 13th of May with a great group of people, dining on our French-inspired menu in our beautiful North Vancouver art-filled dining room. For most of our guests, this was their very first underground dining experience, and everyone really enjoyed the experience!

Our guests were welcomed into our candlelit living room, where everyone got to know each other before moving on to our dining room for a four-course feast. For our 2017 launch, I joined our guests for dinner (for the first time!), while chef Rose and host Eamonn took care of preparing the meal, plating beautiful dishes, and serving.

For the launch of our 2017 season we chose one of our popular menus from last year, a flavourful four-course French-inspired meal:

MENU
French Onion Soup –
 caramelized onion broth, enriched with port and topped with a crouton of gruyere cheese
Galette de Pomme de Terre with Smoked Salmon – warm potato pancakes served with cream cheese and smoked salmon, topped with capers & garden greens tossed in  a white balsamic dressing
Floating Islands – light merengue, creme anglaise, caramel & toasted almonds
Cheese Board – Chaumes, Oka and soft goats cheeses, strawberries & grapes 
Sparkling water, coffee & tea

With our BYOB policy, guests were able to enjoy their favourite wine and craft beers along with their meal – always a welcome feature for our guests!

Our first supper club of 2017 was delightful for everyone involved, guests and hosts, with  non-stop conversation and an interesting group of guests around our long table. We are excited about the new season ahead of us, and look forward to welcoming more guests to our table this year!

A Secret Dinner Party for YVR Bloggers

On Wednesday the 15th of June, we hosted a group of Vancouver bloggers at The Art House supper club to introduce them to this alluring concept of dining, and their response was magnificent. None of the bloggers had ever gone to a secret dinner before and all thoroughly enjoyed their experience at the Art House.

With a sunny but cool evening, we once again hosted our supper inside, but the guests had a chance to explore the garden before dinner, and were all mesmerized by its beauty! Inside, the warm candle lights and beautiful decor of our living room created a welcoming setting that complimented the French theme of the evening, complete with a beautiful tablecloth imported from Paris.

French Dinner (Bloggers)

The dinner we served for our bloggers was a light, French-inspired four-course menu full of flavour and homely class:

MENU
French Onion Soup – 
the classic way
Galette de Pomme de Terre with Smoked Salmon – topped with capers & garden greens tossed in  a white balsamic dressing
Floating Islands – light merengue, creme anglaise, caramel & toasted almonds
Cheese Board – Port Salut, Buche de Chèvre & Oka cheeses, green grapes 
Sparkling water, coffee & tea

To go with this dinner, our sommelier recommended a dry Riesling or Pinot Gris from Alsace, France, or a sparkling French wine. Our BYOB policy ensured everyone was able to bring exactly what they wanted to drink with their meal.

The evening once again went without a hitch, with nonstop conversation and laughter in the dining room while our hosts delivered course after course of delicious, quality food. Our French menu proved to be so successful that we decided to use it for our secret supper club on Saturday the 25th of June to give others the opportunity to try it!

If you would like to join one of our long-table secret supper clubs or reserve a private one for a group of 8 to 10 guests, contact us here to enquire about your options!
