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.

Table reservations


Tickets to our events cover entry and entertainment but do not guarantee a seat at a table. Some of the tables in our venues are freely available on a first come, first served basis. However, seating is limited (about enough for two thirds of the guests) so if you wish to reserve a table you may do so for an extra charge, which includes Champagne on arrival.

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.

You'll see the option to add a table reservation to your order when you buy your tickets, but you can also add a reservation later (subject to availability) but it helps us if you buy the reservation in the same name as you bought your tickets. Only one person in a group needs to reserve a table, and you don't need to specify who will be sitting at it.

If you choose to add the set-menu dining option (see below) it comes with a table reservation included, so there is no need to reserve a table separately, though note that you may be sharing a table with other guests.

If you have any queries, or special requests such as flowers or a cake, please email



You can come just for drinks and dancing, but our kitchens are also open throughout the evening.

Set MenuFor a gourmet dining experience, there is a three-course set menu option (with a vegetarian alternative), available as a pre-order only—just add the Dinner Option when you buy your ticket. It includes a table reservation, though note that you may be sharing a table with other guests. You can add the dinner option later, after you have bought your entry tickets (subject to availability): if you wish to do this please email

Guests pre-ordering the set menu will be emailed the menu a few days before the event and asked to select from two or three options for each course.

There will be a menu of bar snacks available to order from on the night.

If you are in a group ordering the set menu and you are buying your tickets individually, can you please contact reservations@ to let us know you wish to sit together. If your group is larger than ten, can you likewise contact reservations@
