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…
Christmas by Candlelight
Friday 9th December &
Saturday 10th December
SATURDAY SOLD OUT!
Like a lot of folk in the 1920s, we're not about to let Prohibition spoil Christmas! So we'll be celebrating the season of goodwill by candlelight at a secret party where the jingling of sleigh bells will mingle with the clinking of cocktail glasses, where for one night the cop and the gangster will lay down their Tommy guns and share a toast, where the Prohibition Agent holds back from smashing that barrel of whisky and the corrupt politician, his heart softened by that third Martini, decides to donate this month's kickback to the orphanage.
At our tinsel-toned special we'll invite you to jive, shimmy and Lindy Hop around our Christmas tree, to the ragtime Yuletide stylings of Candlelight favourites the Shirt Tail Stompers playing live for your dancing pleasure. Your host for the evening will be that impish impresario Champagne Charlie, and there will be vintage vinylism from DJ Auntie Maureen.
Let the music play and the bootleg liquor flow!
In 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 platters and 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 outside in our private candlelit courtyard, puffing on a stoogie like a Mob Boss.
