Candlelight Venues in L.A.
Historic Woman’s Club, Santa Monica
Candlelight concerts at this revival building in Santa Monica are supported by glass transoms, twin staircases, and original maple floors. Tribute concerts to soulful singers like Lauryn Hill adapt seamlessly to the spacious main ballroom. In keeping with the Historic Woman Club’s dedication to organizing community events, the historic society welcomes Candlelight into its antique arms.
The Hollywood Roosevelt, Blossom Ballroom
A 1920s slice of the Golden Era, the Blossom Ballroom forms part of a hotel reflecting old Hollywood glamor. Famous stars like Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, and Marilyn Monroe have walked its halls—the hotel’s tantalizing history is almost tangible. It seems only fitting to honor the sentimental tones of iconic artists such as Frank Sinatra, Amy Winehouse, and Adele in this nostalgic space.
Immanuel Presbyterian Church
The historic Immanuel Presbyterian Church has been one of Candlelight’s longest running venues, and for good reason. The vaulted ceilings and stained glass pair perfectly with soothing music and flickering candlelight. Evenings with the likes of Vitamin String Quartet are heavenly, whereas tributes to artists such as Queen B and Taylor Swift offer a surprising crossover of cultures.
Skirball Cultural Center, Glendale
The Skirball Cultural Center is a meeting place inspired by Jewish tradition and democratic ideals of freedom and equality. A dynamic institution welcoming people to engage in cultural activities, the center invites Candlelight to uphold its reputation as one of “the leading cultural venues in Los Angeles”. Depending on the day, you can hear tributes to smooth jazz, the dramatic intensity of Billie Holiday, and so much more.
Ovation Square, Long Beach
Built in 1923, Ovation Square is located in the heart of Downtown Long Beach. The recently renovated venue is highly sought after and is known for its classic architecture and multiple levels. It provides the flexibility and unparalleled setting for a Candlelight concert recreating Neo Soul and Hip-Hop favorites.
Old Town Music Hall
Not far from Los Angeles International Airport, Old Town Music Hall is a cultural landmark. Showing vintage films since 1968, silent films are accompanied by an impressive 1925 pipe organ. Continuing to add flair, Candlelight concerts bring modern and vintage musical tracks to the special location.
Taking place at various locations across L.A., these spectacular Candlelight shows will illuminate the finest venues specifically chosen for their beauty, history, or fame—or all three. The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”
The Candlelight series takes place twice each evening with two back to back 60-65 minute performances. Doors open at least 45 minutes prior to each show.
