Inside The Candlelight Club, London’s Gatsby-style 1920’s speakeasy party


The Candlelight Club is an award-winning Gatsby-style 1920’s speakeasy party, hosted in a secret London venue, which is entirely lit by candlelight. Each party offers an elegant cocktail menu, fine dining, live jazz bands, retro-DJs and a variety of cabaret performances. And of course, you must dress the part!

“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 Magazine.

Each month, the Candlelight Club offers guests the chance to enjoy a night of romance and glamour in an authentic speakeasy environment. The parties sometimes have extra themes evoking aspects of the Jazz Age world, with previous events ranging from “The Golden Age of Travel” to “A Night in Havana” and “Russian Roulette” —all in true Roaring Twenties style.

Whether you’re looking to sip Champagne, dance the night away with the Gatsby Girls or indulge in delicious food, there really is something for everyone. Guests looking for an intimate and formal dining experience can reserve a table for friends to experience the renowned three-course menu or sharing platters.

The menu is constantly evolving; however, you can expect to indulge in dishes such as smoked salmon and king prawns with horseradish cream for starters, followed by slow-cooked lamb shank with a red wine jus, and finishing with toffee apple tarts with cinnamon ice cream. A selection of delicious vegetarian dishes are also available. Mouth-watering!

Party the rest of the night away with the splendid range of cocktails, expertly designed by the Candlelight Club Mixologist. From the Candlelight Club Manhattan, to the Salted Caramel Old Fashioned, there will be a drink to suit all tastes. Shimmy to 1920s classics and make it a night to never forget.
