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.

Opening hours

Our regular parties run from 7pm till 12am and you are free to arrive at any time during those hours. (Although New Year's Eve will probably run till 2am.)

Locations

In keeping with our speakeasy credentials, the Candlelight Club is held at a secret London location. Ticket holders will receive an email two 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, in case you misspelled your email addresses when you bought your tickets.

If you buy a ticket less than two days before the event, you should get the email shortly afterwards (as soon as we see the sale has gone through).

Please note that it is not actually necessary to print out and bring along your tickets, as we primarily use a guest list on the night. Just give your name to the person on the door.
