    Bonjour,

    Je ne saisis pas le sens de "supper rooms" dans la phrase suivante : "Victorian diners enjoyed stewed and curried tripe in popular supper rooms"
    Peut-on un peu adapter en parlant de "dîners mondains" ?
    Merci

    Ou plutôt celui-ci qui me semble décrire ce que vous recherchez. http://www.victorianlondon.org/food/evans.htm


    Victorian London - Food and Drink - Night Houses and Supper Rooms - Song-and-Supper Rooms
    THE COAL-HOLE, CYDER CELLARS, EVANS'S &c.​
    ARE pleasant places of general resort, having for their object the promotion of social harmony and relief of domestic ennui. On entering the rooms, the first impression is that some one has been smoking therein; which supposition is found to be correct as soon as the smokers are discovered through the surrounding clouds.

    peut-être pourrais-je contourner le problème, simplifier et parler de "salles de restaurant les plus fréquentées" ???

    Pourquoi pas tout simplement salle à manger ? WR donne souper ou dîner pour supper, je n'ai pas trouvé de sens qui indique un autre registre par exemple plus formel, ou un contexte particulier ...

    Salle à manger me semble trop "privé". On dirait qu'il s'agit d'un type de restaurant qui n'existe plus (sous ce nom, en tous cas) aujourd'hui.
    Tout comme aujourd'hui nous avons les mots restaurant, cafétéria, auberge, etc., mais que d'autres, tel que taverne, ont disparu.

    Oh, look what I found on wikipedia:
    A song and supper room was a dining club in Victorian England in which entertainment and good food were provided. They provided an alternative to formal theatre and music hall with a good convivial atmosphere in which the customers were encouraged to perform themselves.

    So it sounds like a Victorian form of Cabaret/Karaoke...
