The secret Twenties speakeasy

Do you want to spend a night by candlelight, in a secret place and relax in the speakeasy atmosphere of prohibition? Well, the Candlelight Club is the ideal place to go back in time, without the smoke of the cigars and submachine guns!

In front of a door identical to its neighbors, two guys smoke quietly, wearing only tweed. At their feet is a candle, indicating that you are at the right address. Follow the narrow corridor and go down the stairs. Push the door and step towards the dark and explosive years of prohibition. You are in a clandestine club with a bar serving champagne and sparkling, sophisticated cocktails and inevitable sandwiches cucumber.

Clayton Hartley, a guy with impeccable attire and manners, is the club's conductor. It is the atmosphere of the speakeasies of the 1920s that he recreates successfully in a secret place only lit by candlelight. Small tables are covered with white tablecloths and pearl necklaces, little black dresses, high heels, boas and feathers are part of the dress code. From there, you can enjoy cocktails, drinks and food. A table, if you want to be sure to have one, for 5 costs 65 and you get a bottle of the house champagne!

The Candlelight Club's unique style is also in the attitude, elegance, good manners and later in the night, in a hint of debauchery when, between two sets of Ragtime and Charleston, a cabaret number ending in striptease inflames the dancefloor.

It is a refuge in time, a secret that we would like to keep but that we can not help but share. Check out the next event and go party in the past!
