PlaceInvaders is a one-of-a-kind traveling pop-up dining experience, held in other people's quirky, interesting, and remarkable residences — while no one's home. An intimate dinner with a dash of voyeurism, guests are welcome to explore and admire remarkable properties while enjoying fantastic, chef-driven meals.
Launched in New York in 2014 by two food and travel enthusiasts, PlaceInvaders creates ephemeral dining experiences in interesting homes across the country. Co-founders Hagan and Katie partner with talented local chefs who create seasonal, ingredient-driven, five-course menus served with signature cocktails and paired wines.
Exact locations are never revealed in advance. Prior Invasions have popped up in an abandoned 1950s-era New York penthouse, a minuscule graffiti-covered studio, a Shanghai opium den-inspired condo that once hosted a Notorious B.I.G video shoot, a 15,000 square foot Berkshires mansion, a Phoenix fire house turned bachelor pad, and many more weird, luxurious, and incredible spaces.
