This latest instalment in their series of successful pop-up events promises to set a new standard, with two supper club events, two brunches, an accompanying photography exhibition and a cocktail bar.

In line with their philosophy and the spirit of NOLA, expect more great-tasting food, a lively, fun atmosphere, foot stomping live music and a unique photographic insight into the city.

Kicking off proceedings on Thursday 20 will be the opening of the photography exhibition of New Orleans and Louisiana since the 70s. Then on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd, there will be supper clubs, each with two sittings of 45 x people, an open bar and live New Orleans music from 11pm till 2 am. Meanwhile, on Saturday and Sunday morning, there will be two brunch clubs from 10am to 2pm serving a selection of New Orleans breakfasts and Bloody Marys.

Come and get a taste of this unique city.


‘New Orleans food is as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin.’ Mark Twain

SASSAFRAS isn’t about the fuss. We’re all about the food. We hold supper clubs serving authentic New Orleans cuisine with a Great British Twist. 

Our tailor-made menu features a feast of unique Creole/Cajun flavours, carefully prepared by our Head Chef, Llewyn. His legendary gumbo is culinary voodoo magic and each dish delivers a real taste of NOLA’s rich food culture.

So far we¹ve held five supper clubs at three different locations with the first one hitting London Fields in early June to much enthusiasm and loosened belts. Following on from that we held a spicy crawfish boil on a large ship in St Catherine¹s dock and then dined al fresco on a Deptford rooftop, overlooking the London skyline.
