Too Much Is Never Enough at 123BGR

Dinner is a four course exploration of a beautiful, Grade II listed, Victorian corner terrace, its rich and colourful history

Disappearing Dining Club’s latest private dining adventure is Too Much is Never Enough, a five-week residency at 123 Bethnal Green Road. Dinner is a four course exploration of a beautiful, Grade II listed, Victorian corner terrace, its rich and colourful history, and the beautiful gift and fashion concept store, championing young British designers, artists and makers of very nice things, now housed within this extensively restored, landmark East London building.

Each floor delivers a course of your dinner. First up it’s a Grey Goose Le Fizz, then it’s up to the 2nd floor for Menswear, a darkly lit East London boys club, with walls filled with photos and memorabilia of Moderne Buckles, Leading Makers of Air Rifles, Replicas, Buckles, Leather Goods & Accessories, the previous occupiers of 123 Bethnal Green Road and a front for the largest network of illegal gun suppliers ever uncovered by the Metropolitan Police. First course canapés will include miniature Hot Winter Vegetable Soups, Potted Meats on St John’s Sourdough, and Montgomery Cheese Pasties. To drink there’ll be gin & rum punches served in giant cut glass bowls and bone china cups.

The main course is served on the first floor. Simply and delicately dressed, Ladieswear is part dressing room and part boudoir, with linen curtains, antique nudes, vintage erotica, candlelight and the scent of powder and perfume. Dinner is big, warm and wintery with slow cooked classics like Coq au Vin with Braised Orpington Chicken, Red Wine, Smoked Pork Belly and Button Mushrooms, hearty vegetable stews like Roast Pumpkin, Puy Lentil & Chestnuts, all served in giant, cast iron, hot pots, and help-yourself winter salads.

Dessert is in the Bunker Café with Hot Doughnuts with Chocolate & Toffee Sauce, ice-cold shots of Spiced Rum & Warm Mince Pies, Rum Truffles and British Cheeses. After dinner everyone can stay until 12am for late night drinks and cocktails, with music and dancing from Ollie Russian (My Band’s Better Than Your Band), Dirty Omar (Latitude) and Dinner Dance resident, Chris Coco (Melodica).

Shopping is optional and can take place at any time during your visit. All diners get 10% off all purchases on the night and a 10% discount card valid from December until the end of February. Staff are on hand throughout to serve, advise, assist and ensure pleasure is had by all and also offer a free gift wrapping service for any Christmas purchases. 123 Bethnal Green Road’s fantastic collections can be viewed at

Spaces are limited to just 60 people per evening with bookings being taken every 15 minutes from 6pm till 9pm. A trip to Too Much is Never Enough will take about 2 hours as guests eat, drink and explore their way around the only Grade II listed, former belt and buckle warehouse and illegal gun factory that is packing this much festive punch currently.

Tickets are £50 and include three courses of food, three cocktails and a glass of really good wine. Tickets are available from or email Laura Morgan at
