Vipp Supper Club
Less VIP. More VIPP
Vipp Supper Club is the social side of Vipp. People coming together in venues that are quite a mouthful in their own. We have sharpened the pencil and drawn up our first supper club destination in a former factory. In a Copenhagen backyard, Vipp Pencil Factory unfolds a curious mix of food, art, design, architecture, and music. Talented chefs from around the world will serve fabulous food on the plate and food for thought in the conversation. Bon appetit.
Opening Dinner - September 23rd
Former R&D Sous chef at Noma, Riccardo Canella, was the first chef to host a Vipp Supper Club. In a time where physical travel is at a standstill, he invited guests on a culinary and sensory journey. Under the title 'A Tale of a Venetian in Denmark', Canella served an experimental tasting menu spiced with anecdotes.
Biography - Riccardo Canella
A Venetian in Denmark
Born and raised in Italy, Riccardo Canella’s first kitchen encounter was with 3 Michelin star chef Gualtiero Marchesi, the founder of the Italian modern cuisine. His passion for raw materials led him to Copenhagen’s Noma where an internship led the way to a role as René Redzepi’s R&D Sous chef. After 6 years at Noma, Canella gave his resignation and in a goodbye letter stated that: “Free is the man who has deep roots”.
Kasper Egelund, CEO and 3rd generation Vipp owner
'It’s not a restaurant. But we do invite spectacular chefs to cook up intimate dinners. Nor is it a nightclub. But we do invite talented musicians to play a tune. And now, we invite you to join us for dinner.'
Supper Club│[suh·puh kluhb]
A supper club refers to an underground restaurant, a home bistro, a guerilla dinner, a pop-up or even anti-restaurant. Supper clubs typically incorporate musical acts to complement the atmosphere. Consider it an intimate and social dining experience without the formality of a ball or crowdedness of a club.
At the chef's table
Vipp Pencil Factory is a scene for talented chefs hosting supper club experiences. From the long-table, guests are offered front-row seats to watch the talented chefs show off their craftsmanship, preparing, plating, and presenting dishes right before their eyes.
Vipp on a plate
First there was a bin, then a table and a chair, then a kitchen…and now Vipp starts to cook. Vipp Supper Club brings to life the natural connection between manufacturing kitchens and inviting chefs to use them. Our ambition is to welcome a broad spectrum of nationalities, tastes, techniques, and flavours to the table.
Vipp Pencil Factory
In a Copenhagen backyard in Islands Brygge, Vipp has transformed a 100-year-old pencil factory into a social dining room dedicated to sharpening your senses. Safeguarding the original factory features of the space while igniting an intimate and homey feeling was part of the brief given to interior designer Julie Cloos Mølsgaard. Taking center stage in the 400m2, Bauhaus-inspired factory space is Vipp’s new V2 kitchen and a 26-person-long-table offering first row seats to the culinary endeavors by handpicked chefs. A variety of musical talents are invited to take the stage with the grand piano, adding an element of private concert to the already intimate experience.
