About The Candlelight Club

Fancy adding a little Gatsby glamour to your event? The Candlelight Club is a pop-up speakeasy with an ever-changing location, which means there’s always an element of surprise and mystery to any event held here. What can be expected, though, is an elegant cocktail menu, live music (including DJs and jazz bands), excellent dining options and cabaret performances.  

So, how does one recognise a Candlelight Club venue? Guests should look for a single candle outside the door (and make sure to double check the address before they arrive). For smaller groups who want to get involved with the fun, they can simply reserve a table or book a dinner at one of its public events which are able to hold up to 230 people.  

If you're looking for something a little more exclusive, or the dates of the existing public events don’t work for you, larger groups are able to hire out a venue exclusively. This can be for parties of between 70 and 500 people and will run in a similar format to a signature Candlelight Club event.  

So, what does this include? There is a wide number of dining options available, from canapes to bowl food to a decadent sit-down dinner. And when it comes to the drinks, you can choose to opt for an open or pay bar. Or, you might want to put on a drinks-focused event, such as a Champagne reception or cocktail masterclass! The world’s your oyster.  

Candlelight Club do recommend that guests hire live music as part of the event, such as as band or DJ, and it can also offer an array of live entertainment including cabaret performers, dancers, burlesque artists and magicians. Not to mention photographers, photo booths, make-up stylists and more. No detail is too adventurous or outrageous.

May Party

06 May 2022 until 07 May 2022

This time our live music will come from the Jake Leg Jug Band, appearing at the Candlelight Club for the first time. The band brings you the authentic jazz and ragtime sounds of 1920s and 30s America, songs of liquor, gambling, betrayal and murder—everything you need for a cracking Saturday night out.

Leading the revels as ever will be our host with the most Champagne Charlie and when the band aren’t playing the Bee’s Knees will be spinning vintage vinyl for your dancing pleasure.

For our last party of the summer we are delighted to be joined by ex-pat New Englander Elise Roth and her band. Elise debuted at our Christmas party and wowed us with her vocal talents and enthusiasm for the music of the era, so there’s no doubt she’ll have you on the dancefloor this time too.

Introducing Elise will be our resident Host with the Most, Champagne Charlie, plus DJing from the Bee’s Knees, Michelle Krausz’s pop-up vintage jewellery store, tarot reader Lucius and all the usual dining and table reservation options.

Testimonials For The Candlelight Club

Best Christmas party everFEBRUARY, 2022

We booked the Candlelight Club for our work Christmas Party. David, Clayton and Emma took fantastic care of us and put on a truly wonderful night. The food was great and the entertainment was excellent—Champagne Charlie got the whole crowd going, the live band and DJ made sure the dance floor was always full and the dancing girls brought a really vintage quality to the night. The day after, loads of colleagues got in touch to say it was our best Christmas party ever! I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone looking for a unique and original party.
