On Friday 4th November, the Social Pantry team transformed Platform, the beautiful space above Habitat on the Kings Road, into an autumnal wilderness pop-up. Our pop-up started with one of Alex Head‘s infamous supper clubs on the Friday evening followed by a spectacular brunch the next day to start bonfire night off with a bang.
If you weren’t one of the lucky few to attend, here’s what went down…
STEP INTO THE WILDERNESS SUPPER CLUB | FRIDAY 4TH NOVEMBER 2016
With the help of our friends from Worm London and The Plant Lab we invited guests to Step Into The Wilderness. On arrival, guests were welcomed to delicious canapes which included Wild Mushroom Scotch Eggs, Crispy Pigs Ears and Honey’d Goats Cheese on Rye whilst we put their chosen tipple (the event was BYOB) to chill.
DJ, Sophie Bond, set the scene with a chilled out playlist whilst guest mingled and acquainted themselves with fellow supper clubbers. As the evening started gearing up for the main event, artists from Graffiti Life, began with their life art installation that would later represent a Wilderness scene.

BRUNCH WITH SOCIAL PANTRY | SATURDAY 5TH NOVEMBER 2016
Last Saturday, we brought a taste of our classic cafe brunch dishes to Chelsea for one day only. Whether guests were recovering from the revelry of the night before or looking to kick their weekend off in style, the Social Pantry brunch menu had something for everyone.
Set to a Saturday soundtrack, DJ Sophie Bond was back for round two and guests were warmly welcomed to a selection of brunch canapes and coffee from Social Espresso.
Everyone was invited to sit down to some of our signature brunch dishes, including Slow Roasted Pulled Pork & Brioche Slider with Fried Egg, the Ultimate Smashed Avocado and Courgette Fritters. For those in search of a sweet Saturday treat, stacks of Almond Pancakes with Walnuts, Toasted Banana Bread with Espresso and Dark Chocolate Quinoa Bars then dotted the centre of the table.
