Jim Haynes
Helen Cathcart / Time Out

The godfather of supper clubs, Jim Haynes has run a Sunday dinner party from his former sculpture studio for more than 30 years. And a rollicking party it is: the US-born host welcomes the first 60 or so people who ask to attend, whether they be locals or visitors from far-flung lands. Haynes memorises the guest list beforehand, so he can easily make introductions on the night, connecting philosophy students with truck drivers, retirees with cartoonists and painters. “If I had my way,” he says, “I would introduce everyone in the whole world to each other.” For a suggested donation of €30, diners chow down on an eclectic menu: Haynes calls on a rotating selection of chefs, so guests may be surprised by a British cook one Sunday, a Macedonian one the week after, or a Portuguese after that.
