Social Republic

We meet over food. Join us.

We’re a dining network for sociable, responsible and creative people. We list organised dinners for singles, for people who enjoy good food with like-minds, and for professionals who want to gather in a relaxed environment. Members meet in restaurants and homes. Guests are invited by their host, so members meet the kind of people they want to.

It's easy to organise a dining event - just post the details - and then when you're ready, select your guests and go. Or if you're a home chef, you can cook. You can even run your own supper club from here. We'll take care of of the admin, publicity and payments.

Find out what's going on in your area, or start something today.
