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…
Friday 27th & Saturday 28th February
SATURDAY SOLD OUT!
In honour of the annual riotous Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans earlier this month, we have live music from the Candid Jug Orange Band, doling rolling rhythms from the Big Easy, the birthplace of jazz.
Mardi Gras ("Fat Tuesday") is the last Tuesday before Lent when many cultures let their hair down. In Britain we eat pancakes. In New Orleans they have a week of carnival, a wild festival of masks, costumes, parades, music and partying. Dozens of "Krewes" spend all year putting displays together and as they process through the city they fling trinkets, specially minted "doubloons" and strings of gold, purple and green beads from their floats into the crowd. A fusion of Caribbean, Spanish and French culture, this has been going on for over 150 years—and it certainly didn't stop for Prohibition.
In fact the Big Easy is famous for its drinking culture—the federal Prohibition agent assigned to the region used to gauge the extent of his problem in a new city by how long it took him to get an illegal drink when he arrived. In New York it had taken 14 minutes. In New Orleans it took 37 seconds. For our Mardi Gras special we'll be offering a cocktail menu of New Orleans classics and as usual our kitchens will be serving an à la carte supper menu all night.
When the band aren't playing there will be vintage DJing from Auntie Maureen.
