This Saturday you may like to try something a little different.

Like eating at an Aberdeen Angus Steakhouse, or – preferably – going to a 1920s cinema-inspired evening of cocktails and jazz in a wood-panelled drinking den in the heart of Soho.

First up you’ll need to dip into your wardrobe and select your favourite 1920s-inspired garb.  The well-suited gangsters and the decadent aesthetes always go down well, as do the corrupt politicians.

You’ll make your way to The Apartment in Soho and ascend to the first floor of a legendary townhouse  that has enjoyed a long history of clandestine partying. King Edward VII’s secret liaisons here with his mistress Lillie Langtry were nothing compared to the naughtiness that ensued whenever Oscar Wilde popped in, a young buck or two in tow, to enjoy a nightcap or ten.

Hosted by the Candlelight Club your evening will, as ever, be moodily lit by candles that flicker alongside background screenings of some of Hollywood’s earliest films. You’ll drink Irish Martinis and Caramel Manhattans while being entertained with live 1920’s-inspired tunes from Gracie and the G-Spots and the Club’s resident DJ…

Doors open at 19:30 on the 15th October, and tickets cost £15.

Tickets are also now available for the Candlelight Club’s “Guy Fawkes Special” on 4th and 5th November: think indoor fireworks, fire-eaters, hot jazz and smoky, fiery cocktails..
