It's not what you know it's who you know

sdfgThe Candlelight Club is brought to you through the shrewd and enlightened help of SW4 ultra-premium London dry gin, "The Gin of Champions"

Interesting gin facts

1. SW4 gin is made in a gold-plated bath by a man named Mo.

2. A bottle of SW4 gin is a universally recognised unit of currency among corrupt politicians and bent cops.

3. The story goes that the Candlelight Club started as a private party one night. Some passing dissolute toffs heard the music and revelry and banged on the door, demanding to be let in. The startled doorman replied, "Say, what for?" Legend has it that this phrase became shortened to "SW4" and was adopted as the name of the club's house gin.

fgThere is much myth and mystique surrounding absinthe, the "forbidden drink". Where better to learn the truth for yourself than the Candlelight Club? We offer two first-rate modern absinthes, Butterfly, made to a 1902 Boston recipe, and sfgLa Clandestine, a colourless nectar from Switzer-land, absinthe's birthplace. They appear in our cocktails but you can also try them served in the traditional way, simply diluted to taste by trickling water from a glass fountain. If you'd like it sweeter, drip the water through a sugar lump on the flat "absinthe spoon" provided.

Top six pop-ups in London



 

 

Come in, before someone sees you

The Candlelight Club is a clandestine pop-up cocktail party in a secret London venue, a stunning, tucked-away den with a 1920s speakeasy flavour, completely lit by candles. Each event offers an elegant cocktail menu, sophisticated dining options all night, plus dancing to live 1920s jazz bands and vintage DJing. Sometimes there is also cabaret, dance acts, burlesque and more…

"The Candlelight Club really is the closest you'll find to an authentic Jazz Age experience in central London. Its unique ambience, fuelled by hundreds of candles, is truly a scene to behold." —Time Out

"Pull on a flapper dress and have a decadent night out at The Candlelight Club" —Grazia

"Speakeasies may be everywhere, but there's no bandwagon-jumping here. This is a sincere recreation, not to mention a really fun evening. Proper drinks too." —Imbibe

"The Candlelight Club—dope" —DJ Yoda

Our next event…

St Patrick's Day Special

17th & 18th March

[SATURDAY SOLD OUT!]

St Patrick's Day party

Flapper leprechaunFriday 17th March is St Patrick's Day, and no one celebrates St Patrick's Day like the Americans—something which went unhindered by Prohibition. Criminal gangs were often based around social background—Irish, Italian, Jewish, etc—and the Irish Americans could be more Irish than the Irish. If you've seen the relevant episode of Boardwalk Empire you'll get the picture.

At our St Patrick's Day celebration there will be
Irish-tinged cocktails, things pointlessly coloured green, perhaps some poteen and live music from The Silver Ghosts with a Celtically inclined offering of 1920s jazz.

Nights in Ballygran

When the band aren't playing we'll have vintage DJing from Auntie Maureen and mastering the revels will be cabaret host Champagne Charlie.

Silver Ghosts

Set MenuIn addition to a well-stocked bar of exquisite cocktails, Champagne, wine and beer, our kitchens will also be open all night. Why not choose the pre-order fine-dining option, which gives you a three-course set menu? There will also be a menu of bar snacks available to order on the night, and it is also possible to reserve tables with Champagne but without the set menu.

We even sell cigars, so you can sit in our private courtyard, puffing away like a Mob Boss.
