Partygoers can enjoy a night of jazz, dancing and costumes at the Candlelight Club, a themed experience that changes its secret location per event

Customers are increasingly seeking out unique experiences at popups, with their drop-in, easy-to-consume format. Whether they're looking for Instagram material or simply a way to get out of the house, visitors want to try something that they can't get elsewhere.

London's popup speakeasy the Candlelight Club is taking this approach for its brand activation. It's an immersive experience where partygoers can skip the modern club and instead choose to be transported back to the Roaring Twenties, complete with live jazz and free-flowing libations. The Prohibition-era theme is designed to entice visitors with a thrilling atmosphere where alcohol was illicit and glitz and glam were celebrated.

With a new secret location and menu for each gathering, guests receive a unique experience every time they visit. Keeping with the speakeasy theme, the address isn't revealed until two days before the event. There's a big emphasis on authenticity, and every detail from the music to the lighting is as close as possible to what life was like in the 1920s. Guests enjoy vintage-inspired drinks and entertainment consisting of jazz musicians, burlesque dancers, and acrobats.
