About Country Roads Supper Club

OUR MOTTO: EAT WELL. RAISE A GLASS. MAKE NEW FRIENDS.

Our slogan sums it up... we created Supper Club to make the most of

River Road culture by bringing great food, fine wine, and close friends

together in the most spectacular settings we've discovered in 35 years of publishing.

WHO'S COOKING?

We work with nationally recognized chefs from Louisiana, Mississippi, and beyond,

inviting them to step out of their restaurants and create unique

menus themed to suit the location. 

WHY FAMILY STYLE?

At most of our dinners, we strive to create an atmosphere of has a family style

component to it; this goes back to our motto.. make new friends.

Supper Club has struck a balance of old and new friends uniting over good food.

Family style creates opportunity for interaction by serving your neighbor.

WHAT'S WITH THE BELL?

At our first Supper Club we rang a dinner bell to get our guests' attention. 

Now it's a tradition! Plus, it's hard to pry that bell from the hands of CR head honcho

James Fox-Smith. So when you hear the bell ringing, get ready to dine!

WHO'S THAT SINGING?

Spending decades covering the arts has its advantages. For each Supper Club,

we work with renowned local musicians, storytellers, and artists chosen to

complement the theme of the event. Theatre troups, steamboat jazzmen,

Grammy award-winning fiddlers, and local bluesman—they're all here.

WHAT'S SUPPER CLUB STYLISH?

It's the age-old dilemma...what to wear for South Louisiana's schizophrenic weather.

Leave the high heels and suits at home. Supper Club events are a cultural safari 

taking guests all over the region. But whatever the destination, each

Supper Club event is carefully crafted to be beautiful. So dress comfort in style.

But don't worry, we'll give you a heads-up about the weather before each dinner.
