The Candlelight Club
On Saturday night I joined London's most dapper gents and darling dames at The Candlelight Club. Think 1920s, and in true prohibition style, the venue remained top secret until the day of the event itself. After meeting at Vintage Secret Towers for non-prohibited cocktails, Fleur, Lisa, Naomi and I hopped in a oh-so glam Hackney mini-cab to a the venue in Angel. We were greeted with a ticket each to collect our free (VERY alcoholic) cocktail and found a table where we snacked on 'posh' sandwiches, consisting of beef and celeriac, beetroot and cream cheese, and chicken and poppy seed, among other flavours.
Music was provided by MC Fruity, and the entertainment by the splendid Vicky Butterfly, who performed the most beautiful burlesque.
There was a wonderfully eclectic mix of people, and some fabulous faces dancing the Charleston, that I have now decided I must learn. A lovely night with a perfectly intimate atmosphere and superb company!
Here are some pretty pictures...
