You're too smart for small talk


 

unplug & truly connect

You are surrounded by interesting and interested people, yet rarely get to know each other on a deeper level. Bring Your Own Story is an international supper club helping you build community through storytelling.

Each week our hosts throw private dinners in New York, London, Chicago and beyond. At the table, everyone shares a true, personal story related to the evening's theme, and listens to the tales of 6-8 fellow storytellers.

We launched in 2016, and have been growing ever since! To date, we’ve held over 250 dinners with 40 trained hosts in dozens of cities around the world - which adds up to more than 1,500 unique stories. Come join the dinner party!

I love getting to know people through their experiences, reflections and feelings rather than through some of the bullet points on their resumes and BYOS offers a great platform and opportunity to do so. Thank you so much!

My favorite part was listening to the honest, vulnerable stories of a curated group of interesting people in such a kind and welcoming environment as manifested by the hosts.
