London’s award-winning immersive 1920s-themed speakeasy party, with live jazz, cabaret and cocktails in a secret venue filled with candles, where everyone dresses the part.
Hosting this time will be stern Teutonic mistress Eva Von Schnippisch, as we turn our gaze to 1920s Berlin—where the chaotic Weimar republic is tearing itself apart as Nazis and Communists vie for the people's hearts, and the currency devalues so quickly that banknotes must be over-printed at 1,000 times their original worth. Where does one go to drown one's sorrows? Why, the Candlelight Club, of course.
As immortalised in the movie 'Cabaret', it’s a decadent, desperate world where economic collapse and political mayhem waltz drunkenly with bold new art and bolder social permissiveness—the crossroads between an elegant feudal past and the thrilling modern world, where monocled aristocrats share tables with revolutionaries and women dressed as men, an artistic melting pot that produces the madness of Dada, George Grosz's satirical grotesques and the futuristic dystopian movie Metropolis.
Forget the gloom outside: here you can sway to the new "jazz" music from America, learn to dance the Charleston, flirt with our cabaret singers, and quaff Champagne and cocktails like there's no tomorrow—there probably isn't. We'll be projecting Weimar-era movies to get you in the mood.
Live music will come from jazz deviants the Swing Ninjas, and there will be tarot readings from our resident mystic Lucius and a pop-up vintage jewellery shop from Michelle Krausz.
You can pre-order a three-course dinner (which includes a table reservation all night) or reserve a table with Champagne but without the dinner. In addition to the main cocktail bar, our rum, absinthe and cigar bar will be selling genuine Havana cigars to smoke in our private garden. Ticket-holders receive an email two days before revealing the secret location.
"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 OutRead Less
