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.


Emilie Qvist

Emilie Qvist’s personal tale starts on the Danish, organic farm where she grew up. After an education at Rezepi’s MAD Academy, and before gaining experience on the Danish Michelin scene as a chef at Amass and Relæ, she trained as a chef on the world-renowned Blue Hill at Stone Barns north of Manhattan. Here, she developed a taste for seasonality and local produce. After one year in the metropole of New York she relocated to provincial Jutland. Crossing the Atlantic, she brought with her a principle taught at Blue Hill; that a restaurant belongs to the seasons and the earth and the terroir. Her own restaurant Medvind is run in the same purposeful way.


Medvind in Hanstholm

Where the North Sea encounters Skagerak lies the small fishing village of Hantsholm. Most fish eaten in Denmark, even in Europe, starts its sea-to-table journey in this village of only 2,000 inhabitants. Ironically, with such a backyard pantry, no fish restaurant was found in Hantsholm until Emilie moved to town one year ago and opened the doors to her first restaurant ‘Medvind’ (read English: Tailwind). Many locals didn’t believe in the idea of restaurant serving only fish. But with the tailwind that Medvind has gotten this first year, Emilie Qvist has blown away the whole restaurant industry.
“The question for me was to go where the food is rather than to get the food to a place,” says Emilie Qvist.


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.

The concept

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.
