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 31st October &
Saturday 1st November
BOTH NIGHTS SOLD OUT!
A special event in a spooky speakeasy filled with candles and Jack-o'-lanterns.
The wild set in the Roaring Twenties liked nothing more than a fancy-dress party, and New York's Plaza Hotel was particularly famous for its Halloween extravaganzas. So don your finest Jazz Age seasonal outfits—ghostly flappers, spiderwomen, devils and imps, glamorous vampresses, dapper wizards and coquettish witches.
To get your toes tapping, there will be diabolically good live music emanating from those Gothic Gatsbys the Top Shelf Band, playing 1920s-style swing jazz with a distinctly louche, wicked edge. Spinning vintage vinyl will be DJ Auntie Maureen.
The 1920s and 1930s saw a great interest in spiritualism and we'll be offering tarot readings from Sphinx Tarot.
There will be a dining menu and, of course, eerie cocktails straight from the mad professor's laboratory, brought to you in uncanny association with Tanquerary gin…
Black vodka, lime juice, gomme syrup
A gothic twist on the classic cocktail more commonly made with white rum
Corpse Reviver No.2
Tanquerary gin, absinthe, Cointreau, Cocchi Americano, lemon juice
An original cocktail from the 1920s, it gets its name from the idea that you might have one of these to perk you up in the morning if you had a bit too much the night before. Yes, they were hardcore in those days
Bobbing for Apples
Tanquerary gin, sparkling wine, apple juice, lemon juice, gomme syrup, apricot mist
Apple bobbing is a Halloween tradition, but this crisp autumnal fizz is less messy and a lot more fun
Rum, lime juice, orange juice, grenadine
Tangy tropical rum and fruit combo, named after the eerie region where planes and ships disappear without trace. The blood-red pomegranate syrup grenadine sits at the bottom for a creepy Halloween effect
Amaretto, apricot brandy, lemon juice, pasteurised egg white
A wonderful sweet and sour balance with flavours of almond and apricot
