Come in, before someone sees you
The Candlelight Club is a clandestine pop-up cocktail party in a secret London venue, a stunning, tucked-away den with a 1920s speakeasy flavour, completely lit by candles. Each event offers an elegant cocktail menu, sophisticated dining options all night, plus dancing to live 1920s jazz bands and vintage DJing. Sometimes there is also cabaret, dance acts, burlesque and more…
"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 30th July
Before we all head off to festivals and beaches, come to our last party of the summer, at the capital's favourite speakeasy where every day is a holiday!
We'll be projecting some vintage vacation-themed movies to put you in the mood and to get your feet moving we'll have live music from those ragtime ragamuffins the Shirt Tail Stompers plus vintage vinylism from DJ Auntie Maureen spinning vintage shellac.
And keeping everyone in order with a song, a slap and a tickle will be that Lord of Cabaret Misrule, Champagne Charlie.
As a special summer bonus, we've teamed up with online fashion giant Zalando to offer two £50 Zalando vouchers, which we'll present to the two guests who've made the best effort with their vintage outfits. (Champagne Charlie's decision is final—though in keeping with the spirit of the Prohibition era he is quite open to bribery, blackmail and political manoeuvring.) Zalando offer a vast range of clothes, shoes and accessories for women and men, from street fashion to swimsuits and lingerie, including a feast of elegant cocktail and evening dresses.
In addition to a well-stocked bar of exquisite cocktails, Champagne, wine and beer, our kitchens will also be open all night. Why not choose the pre-order fine-dining option, which gives you a three-course set menu? There will also be a menu of platters and bar snacks available to order on the night, and it is also possible to reserve tables with Champagne but without the set menu.
We even sell cigars, so you can sit outside in our private candlelit courtyard, puffing on a stoogie like a Mob Boss.
