Clandestine dining experience pops-up in London

1st October 2012

London offers visitors staying in central London hotels a wide range of dining options but one special event could prove to be very unique.

Gingerline HQ, named after the East London underground line, is perfect for people who are looking for an adventurous night out. All the details of the menu and ingredients remains top secret until the day and all diners are sworn to secrecy.

Even the location of the dinner is kept hidden from guests until 60 minutes before the first course is served. All people know is that the restaurant will be a short walk from a special east London meeting point, with further details sent by text message on the night.

Gingerline HQ can cater for vegetarians, vegans and diners with allergies and each menu includes four courses of delicious but mysterious food.

Liz Hoggard from the Evening Standard explained that the evening promised one of the "coolest supper" options in the capital.

She added: "For each event, they take over an unused location and create an immersive theatrical experience. You're going to get a fabulous meal - anything from wild boar to roasted sumac-spiced chicken."

Gingerline HQ has been operating for around two years and already 6,000 people have taken part in the secret dining experience.

The event was conceived by food enthusiast and cook Susannah Mountfort and she explained that the specially designed menu and the unique styling of each dining room was down to friends.

She said: "The arts-space and 'menu art' elements were really so I could involve my friends, who are brilliantly talented and supportive. Gingerline, above all else, is underpinned by some really powerful female friendships."


Tickets cost between £43 and £46 and anyone wanting to take part must book as soon as possible as the dining events sell out very quickly.
