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 5th December
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 Winter 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.
On our main stage, there will be live music from Brandyn Shaw and his Rhythm Makers, recreating the sound of British dance bands of the 1920s and 1930s, and in particular the vocal style of legendary crooner Al Bowlly.
Master of ceremonies will be your host Champagne Charlie, delivering a cabaret broadside and keeping everyone in order.
A luxury three-course dinner will be prepared by our 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 Möet & Chandon Champagne but without the meal. An à la carte menu of simpler fare will also be available to order on the night.
From our specially built ornate 30-foot bar comes a classic cocktail menu courtesy of Chris Lacey (formerly of The Connaught and Rules).
Doors for this special event open at 6.30pm and we will close at 1am (with last orders at 12.30).
