Doors open 7pm and we throw you out at midnight

The Candlelight Club is held at a secret location. Ticket holders will receive an email a couple of days before the event giving exact directions, the password, which cops have been bribed, etc.

If you don't get this email, first CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER, then contact us (in good time), either by email or on 07768 628788, because customers do sometimes misspell their email addresses when they buy tickets.


Most of the tables in the venue are freely available on a first come, first served basis. However, seating is not unlimited so if you wish to reserve a table you may do so for a supplemental charge. At our regular events a small table costs £65 (on top of your ticket price), includes a bottle of the house Champagne and can seat up to five people. A large table is £130, includes two bottles of house Champagne and can seat up to ten people. At our grand ball events the prices are different and there are also two-person tables for £45, which includes two glasses of Champagne. Only one person in a group needs to reserve a table. You'll see the option to reserve a table on the billing page of the booking process,but it is also possible to reserve a table after you have already bought a ticket. If you have any queries, or special requests such as flowers or a cake, please email reservations@

1920s dandies and flappers, gangsters and molls, degenerate aristos, decadent aesthetes, corrupt politicians and the Smart Set In the Know. Evening wear or jackets and ties for gents. No T-shirts, jeans or trainers. Hen parties very welcome but, please, no L-plates or phallic objects

Please note that the Candlelight Club is lit entirely by candles. It looks lovely but be aware that naked flames can be dangerous if not respected, and that candle wax can be a bugger to get out of clothes. Customers enter at their own risk.

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.

Come in, before someone sees you

The Candlelight Club is a clandestine pop-up cocktail bar in a secret London venue, a stunning, tucked-away den with a 1920s speakeasy flavour, completely lit by candles. Each party offers a one-off cocktail menu, with special themes, plus dancing to live 1920s jazz bands and vintage DJing.

"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…

Spring Ball
Saturday 14th March


sdfNot all speakeasies were makeshift basement dens—some were large, glittering and glamorous, often trading quite openly thanks to ownership by an influential bootlegger and the protection of a corrupt Chief of Police. To celebrate, the Candlelight Club presents a special Spring Ball, in sdfan original 1920s ballroom, lit by hundreds of candles below and lofty chandeliers above, with palm trees and an Art Deco stage set.

To celebrate the rising of sap, the sprouting of green shoots and other spring-like friskiness, we'll have live music from the Shirt Tail Stompers, getting your feet moving with their authentic 1920s swing rhythms.


Master of ceremonies will be your host Andrew Pepper, delivering a cabaret broadside and keeping everyone in order.

To show you how its done there will be Charleston routines from dance troupe the Gatsby Girls dance troupe and when the band aren't playing we'll have vintage DJing from Auntie Maureen.


sdfA luxury three-course dinner will be prepared by our Michelin Star trained chefs and served on crisp linen by uniformed staff, accompanied by a fine wine list and Champagne from Möet & Chandon. This set menu is available as a pre-order (you'll see the options as you go through the ticket purchase process) and comes with a table reservation. It is also possible to reserve a table with Champagne but without the meal. An à la carte menu of simpler fare will also be available on the night.

From our specially built ornate 30-foot bar comes a classic cocktail menu courtesy of Brian Silva (The Connaught, Rules).

Doors for this special even open at 6.30pm and we will close at 1am (with last orders at 12.30).
