The Candlelight Club is a clandestine pop-up party with a 1920s speakeasy flavour, in a secret London venue completely lit by candles. You'll be whisked away to those Prohibition days with a heady mix of live jazz music, vintage vinylism, delicious cocktails and a party crowd all dressed up in their finest 1920's outfits, marvelling at the stunning setting. 

You can buy just an Entry Ticket to come for drinks and dancing, or you can choose to add the fine-dining three-course set menu, which includes a table reservation (note that your table may be shared with other guests). Alternatively you can reserve your own table for a fee that includes Champagne, but not the set menu—small tables will seat up to five people and come with a bottle of house Champagne. Large tables will seat up to ten and come with two bottles of house Champagne. In addition to the pre-order set menu, there will be a menu of platters and bar snacks that anyone can order from on the night.

our event on 8th July is a special Summer Ball, in a grand, long-forgotten east London ballroom, with entertainment across two rooms—in the main hall there will be a live jazz band and vintage DJing, plus dinner options and tables that can be reserved as usual. Meanwhile in the intimate Cabaret Lounge there will also be two cabaret shows during the evening plus an extra bar.  

Guests are encouraged to dress in 1920s outfits. Ticket holders get an email two days before revealing the location.

Had a fabulous evening at my first Candlelight Club event - despite the fact that I was doing Dry January! There was enough entertainment, music and dancing to keep me occupied that it didn't matter that I was drinking pineapple juice :) Samantha visited The Candlelight Club on 06 Jan 2017

Absolutely brilliant night. The band and the DJ were absolutely brilliant. We all danced our little socks off. The drinks were nice. To be honest it was probably one of the best nights out we have had! It was planned perfectly and the venue was so secretive. All lit by candles which just made it the most fabulous atmosphere. The host was excellent at getting back to me and really went out of his way to make our night special. Cocktails were nice (and strong!) and there was a few different wines to choose from. The food was ok, not brilliant and probably not quite enough for the men in our group. I wasn't expecting much as it's mass catering but I enjoyed it all the same. Actually felt like I had gone back in time! Perfect night!!! James visited The Candlelight Club on 04 Jan 2017

Champagne Charlie was a great host for an incredible night with amazing music! A slightly bigger dancing area would be nice though. Cornelia visited The Candlelight Club on 03 Jan 2017

Excellent NYE at the CC. Very good performance but Champagne Charlie and the Bubbly Boys and good overall atmospheric. A bigger area to dance in would be good though. Thomas visited The Candlelight Club on 23 Oct 2016

Food was terrible, cold and 2 hours late although if it was served properly then it would have been lovely! But what a fantastic night! The new year venue could have been better something like an under ground basement like a real 1920 speakeasy and not an back street community centre but absolutely loved it! 100% will go again! Best new year iv had! And what's good is everyone attending really goes all out and gets into it I don't like leaving bad reviews when the negative things could have been avoided but paying just under £500 for four people and then over hearing the words ' I don't know what they are on about, our food great. Do whatever to shut them up' is not ok! 100% would never eat at the night again but would definitely go again and everyone should! It's brilliant! Iv taken 1start for the food and 1for the rudeness of what I think was the manager! Victoria visited The Candlelight Club on 12 Dec 2016

Hi Victoria, while we are delighted that you enjoyed the overall experience, we're sorry that you found the dining experience so unsatisfactory. This was not an incident of which we were aware so we are looking into what happened, but if you would be like to discuss it with us please contact us at david@thecandlelightclub.com.

Amazing night, fabulous music and dancing. I am definitely going back as it is hard to find a fun and different night out in London. Everyone made a massive effort with their outfits!!

Excellent! Fantastic atmosphere, great music, excellent organization, perfect management. I would only suggest you to keep the prices of cocktails a little bit down, the ticket was already quite pricey :)! Regarding the tarot readers: you might consider using some atmosphere for them as well, maybe a tent made out of old red curtains! Overall a great party!

Used to be 12£ and the band played longer than had breaks unlike now. The floor has holes and metallic bits. Too many tables/chairs, less dancing space. kitchen was useless:-( Evelyn visited The Candlelight Club on 16 Nov 2016

Reply from The Candlelight Club

Hi Evelyn, I’m sorry you were disappointed with your experience; it sounds like you have been before and enjoyed it more. I’m guessing you came on the Friday this time, when we did have problems with the catering (the kitchen team were held up in traffic and lost several hours, meaning many of the food orders went out late). The Candlelight Club has never actually been £12, though—perhaps you are thinking of a different event? The band played for an hour and a half, the same as usual; the only thing that has changed this year is that we now have 20–30 minutes of cabaret as well. The dance floor area in front of the stage is actually slightly bigger than it used to be, but it was a particularly busy night, so it might have seemed less spacious. I’m also sorry about the strange steampunk bits on the floor: the venue had some damage to the floorboards and made emergency repairs with metal plates, which is rather inelegant, I admit, but it needed to be made safe for dancing on.

We had high expectations based on reviews we'd read, and this completely exceeded them. Superbly organised, fantastic music, it was impossible NOT to dance, and there was an atmosphere that just has to be experienced first hand, as words won't do it justice. We will definitely be coming to this again in future. Abby visited The Candlelight Club on 16 May 2016

One word BRILLIANT! In a room full of candles and flappers, we danced the night away, It was incredible watching the 'proper' dancers. Lessons necessary before our next visit in October! Neil visited The Candlelight Club on 25 May 2016

Makes me sad that I was only able to go to one of these as I am moving away from London shortly. A magical night that I wish I could experience every week. Good food, good drink, good friends, good music, good moves. It was a Magical evening. Champagne! Mary Helen visited The Candlelight Club on 13 May 2016

Some initial problems upon arrival as chairs and glasses had not arrived yet. Instead of being offered a drink and asked to wait, until sorted we were shown to our table (one of the few with chairs) and almost immediately served our starter, while all around us chairs were being assembled and carried to the tables. There was a waiter, but he focussed more on guests without a dinner reservation rather than with us, so that we had to get our drinks ourselves, which isn't a problem, but it would have been nice to have had drinks served at the table at least for our dinner. After the starter and the main, which was delicious but small portions we had to wait for an hour for our dessert, which was disappointing (the couples sharing our table weren't so lucky, they had to wait for over an hour for their main courses). However, the entertainment was great, Champagne Charlie and the band brought the place to life and we had a fun time on the dance floor. In summary, great night once the entertainment started, but in future we will skip the disappointing meal and turn up for the party only. Niclas visited The Candlelight Club on 16 May 2016

An excellent night. Everything was first rate: the DJ and the live band both set the tone, everyone made an effort to dress for the jazz age, the cocktails were just perfect and the whole . Then there this a charismatic venue with a good outside terrace all adds up to a great night and a feeling the roaring 20's never ended. Adrian visited The Candlelight Club on 04 Jun 2016

The candlelight club hies good professional bands/musicians to whom one may dance swing, balboa, quickstep, Charleston and slow foxtrot plus the odd rumba. The guests, especially the men, are well dressed- they wear respectable dinner jackets, rather than cheap junk from fancy dress costume shops, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Clayton Hartley is a refined and respectable host. The cocktails are well mixed and quality ingredients are used. One of the few decent places to for dancing and a bit of fun in London if one prefers music with a melody and guests not dressed in torn jeans and T shirts George visited The Candlelight Club on 22 May 2016

The best night out I've ever experienced. Champagne, jazz, dance, fabulous people: What else could one ask for. The cabaret style entertainment was the cherry on top as everyone was hooked into an evening of 1920s greatness. Sebastian visited The Candlelight Club on 03 Jun 2016
