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…
Saturday 29th June
It's been three years since we started the Candlelight Club, in a basement too tiny even for a band, bringing speakeasy chic to an in-the-know crowd—thanks, we couldn't have made it without you!
So before we break for the summer we're having a special Anniversary Ball, in a bigger venue that usual, a 1920s ballroom.
There will be balletic burlesque from the luminous Vicky Butterfly—the very first performer ever to appear at the Candlelight Club.
There will be Michael Marks' vintage photo studio on site ready to capture you in all your 1920s finery. (High quality prints will be for sale, framed or unframed, which our photographers will dispatch to your home address within 48 hours.)
There will be a cocktail menu, this time featuring favourites from our previous events over the last three years.
