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…
St Valentine's Day Ball
Saturday 14th February
Not 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 St Valentine’s Day Ball, in an original 1920s ballroom, lit by hundreds of candles below and lofty chandeliers above, with palm trees and an Art Deco stage set.
If French is the language of love, then cupid's work will be done by sauve Frenchman Benoit Viellefon and his Orchestra, who performed at Kate and William’s wedding and will be getting your feet moving with their authentic 1920s swing rhythms.
Master of ceremonies will be your host Champagne Charlie, delivering a cabaret broadside and keeping everyone in order.
A luxury three-course Valentine’s dinner will be prepared by our Michelin Star trained chefs and served on crisp linen by white-gloved 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).
There will be a florist on hand in case you want a rose for your companion, and in case you just can’t decide if they’re the right one for you, there will be fortune tellers to peer into your future…
Doors for this special even open at 6.30pm and we will close at 1am (with last orders at 12.30).
