The Candlelight Club: 1920s Valentine’s Day Ball
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The dazzling, 1920s-styled clandestine pop-up party fuelled by jazz, dancing and cocktails returns for a Valentine's extravaganza. It's a lavish, luxurious affair (sponsored by Moët & Chandon champagne, natch), taking place in a secret Art Deco space behind a public library – 'a masterstroke in prohibition-era venue diversion and camouflage', as the organisers put it. The location is kept secret and only revealed to ticket-holders the day before the event.
Benoit Viellefon and His Orchestra (who played at Wills and Kate's wedding, natch) will provide swing jazz and ragtime rhythms for lovers to dance to, amid a palm tree-lined ballroom lit by hundreds of candles – great for romance – just don't burn your tux/dress, as fire extinguishers aren't sexy unless they're used in a slow-mo montage.
There'll also be burlesque performance from Vicky Butterfly, dance from the Gatsby Girls and Auntie Maureen DJing vintage tunes. For those that want to make a meal of it, there's a three-course dinner option available, cooked by a team of Michelin-starred chefs. A whole lot of sultry and sexy party vibes happening right here.
