It is now Xpertease.Beautiful girls.Remodeled.Worth the trip.
It is now XPERTEASE.Bigger and beautiful.
Rumor has it the Candlewood is under renovation and will be reopening soon.
any sexy hungarian dancers here?
it was always a place you could go and just chill. on the usual this was a good place of choice for "us everyday joes" this place will be missed
I just found this site and I really miss the Wood. I won't mention any of the customers, dancers or barmaids to protect their confidentiiality but It was always a special place for me. I loved all the above people who made this place special. I had been going here since the late 80's / early 90's when its location was on Sanford and College Point. It was a low key place where you could check out dancers, have a drink or talk to the barmaids (my personal favorite). No ghetto attitude or young punks. I hope the players who made this place special turn up at another club. If they do I hope someone lets us Wood Alumni know where they are.
Any sightings of Sonia the barmaid? I checked out Honeys where she used to work and Gallaghers but she isn't working at either place. Does anyone know where she is working?
I did not hear anything. The guy who owned the Wood was old and in poor health, so I do not think he would re-open. Next store was a large club that was open for a few months. The crowd was ghetto, and there were always fights inside, so the State pulled their license. I could see the old club becoming a large upscale SL, but that is only a guess.
I heard a rumor the Candlewood or a topless bar under another name was opening in the old Candlewood spot or next door where they had a night club. Can anyone verify this rumor?
sonia went back to Brazil...with her new man and kid
Did this place really close? I wanted to go there this weekend? If it did does anybody know where Sonia the barmaid is working? I didn't come here often but she was one of my favorite barmaids and I liked the low key atmosphere of the club.
The Wood is closing it's doors this Friday November 9 2007 - They will be having a farewell party food, and a full house of dancers. The have called all the hot dancers from the past to join the festivities.
There have been many rumors of the Wood closing but I hear Friday November 9th is their Last day. R.I.P Candlewood
I do not think you can say that the Wood is off the hook, unless they drop the phone! Nice layed back place, but some of those past there prime grandma's got to go.
I was here Fri & Sat nite.....great place...laid back....girls were about 7/10....they weren't the hottest.......but the lap dances are awsome.....I had a great dance from JoAnna and Vaness...DR rules !!
I came in here last nit nite (Sat)......place was off the hook.......my personal favorites was Alize...and Lina. They give awsome lapdances........def money's worth
i was here Sat nite.......it was pretty good....good crowd.......about 15 girls.........they had a few good looking ones................and they gave great dances...def get your money's worth here.........
A word of advice if your looking for a good time dont come here.this is were they come before there put DOWN...
is she really at the Fickle...that place is a dive.......its worst than Candlewood.....I used to see her at the Wood.....even though the Wood have older brazilian women, they are much nicer, , , , , but they have a few new hotties.....I actually like the place.....check it out...i usually get my dances from Lina and Jackie.....great dances !!
Yup, isabella is at the fickle filly which is kind of a retirement home for washed up strippers. generally all over 40 like isabella.
she works on Fri and Sat
Hey People, I haven't been in this place in a while and I was wondering if Amanda, a Brazilian lady who used to danced at Phenomenon works in this place. Thanks for the Info. Take Care
Nice pic. But strangely of the group of them, although Ashcroft is one whacko born again type, he actually stood up (a bit) to our chimperor, Der Fuhrer George Bush, and showed at least some human decency and respect for law. The rest are all human garbage, as all southern republicans are (and as northerm republicans are proving to be for putting party loyalty over the welfare of our country). There really is nothing worse than these scum.
this to keep it real.
I was here last nite......was hopping...got awsome dances from Lena....and Amber...and Vanessa......this place is not the hottest women..but cool has anice easy friendly atmosphere..I ''l be back next weekend
I'm new to Queens via the Philadelphia area and I am living in Bayside. I checked out this club last weekend and I was disapointed. I liked that the atmosphere had no young punks.However after reading previous reviews I did not find the dancers or barmaids even remotely hot. They were nice but washed up in their 40's. Why do clubs let women in their 40's dance or barmaid? Can anyone recommend any good clubs that are not too far from Bayside?
Somebody hit these chicks with ugly sticks. This place is a real dog pound. Its theme song should be " Who let the dogs out!!"
Anybody know if this place did indeed fold? I hope not, or I hope somebody reopens it as strip club. Yeah, I know the girls weren't Miss World candidates, and truth be told some of them seemed down right disinterested, but it had a friendly, low-pressure vibe for a night when you wanted a quick ruboff without alot of fanfare.
Aw, come on, I didn;t mean to offend any body. I sure hope the Candlewood dosen't close. All those older ladies will have to get real jobs or maybe they will retire. I hear the Candlewood has a real good pension plan for those senior citizens. Maybe all the old timers at the bar can hang out at the senior center in college point and give their money to the old ladies in aerobicize class, some of them can sure shake it!!!!!!!!!!!!
I heard a rumor that the Candlewood is closing at the end of March because there lease is up. Does anyone know if this is true? It would be a shame because this is a club that caters to a more mature crowd and is not overun by low lifes or wanna be gangsters.
you must be getting old like the rest of them......because girls wer pretty decent and young when I went there....you sure you don't go by the name "el stupido!" LOL!
I went into the bar on friday. wow!!!! it was like i went in a time machine. the same ol dancers and the same old dummies sitting around doin nothin.
JH Boy - I too am a Sonia fan. I know her over ten years. She is showing her age a bit around the edges but is still a fine looking woman with a great butt. Many times when I go here hoping to see some new dancers I find she is the best thing to look at. I am surprised no guy has swept her off her feet and married her. I don't know what the rest of the Candlewood crowd thinks of her but she is a keeper!!
She works at the Fickle Filly on Linden Blvd in Elmont, Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
No more Isabella. She made her money and took all the money of to many customers. Gave her fake home # to too many horny guys and played everybody, what a scammer!!
If Isabella works here, can someone tell me what days?
What happed here Sat night? I passed by around 2am (sun morning) and saw alot of cop cars and a commotion. Does anyone know what happened?
Isabella works Wed. for the general public Knowledge. So get a lapdance because is gonna end soon, as retirement is inminent (maybe).
Candlewood is having its Christmas Party this Friday! Always lots of girls.
I remember her from her Gallagher days... she's friggin' hot and gives great dances. So I decided to venture to the Candle to see if the rumor was true about her coming out of retirement. A Hall of Fame dancer coming back for more can not and must not be missed. Unfortunately she wasn't there and I couldn't believe what kind of dump this place is. Its a garage with a stage and very depressing. Can't believe they were able to pull Isabella.
which girl is Tamara? when is she working any xtras with her
The Message below is from me. I still did not spot Isabell. The CW has its regular crew, most are well past there prime, but they very down to earth. The CW is different then any other club. It may look like a body shop, and many of the girl could use new bodies, but it only takes one nice one - and thats what keeps me coming back.
Who is Isabella? You are right about Mark, he is a smart guy. The problem is the hot girls like the big $$$ and at the CW there is no big buck potential. I like the girls there, and it is always a special treat, when a new one come it is always a special treat. The CW is also good for after work pickups. It takes time, and then you are branded by the girl, so I stopped doing that.... Well I would never say no Lena....
yo dude...i agree with you.......i know the one italian guy that run the bar......i had a long talk with him very nice guy, in fact the man is a physical therapist..bright guy actually. he is having a difficult time with getting girls. I told him i help him out in anyway....u know like recommend girls from other clubs to dance here....he is willing to to do what it takes to get the girls..he told me what the average girl makes there.....and if you ask me i was impressed....and the girls are not that hot except for "our few" Well keep it mind.....maybe u might know some women Oh by the way I was there Wed, this girl Isabella..was her b-day......man this girl dance my *&^% off.. she is another smoking ass body :))
I like Amber - glad she is coming back. The CW now has a internet juke box were you can pick your own songs. I picked rapper delight, when it started I grabbed Vanessa for a LD, the song runs forever!! She almost passed out, I got monies worth!!! Lena is nice, but keeps to herself, she is not very playfull when she comes off stage. Her body is so amazing, tight and juicy, She is what wet dreams are all about. I love the CW - for me it is the best club in NY. You just have to be a steady and get to know the girls, who are very loyal to the place. You get treated very well. When the place is not busy, the girls will hang out with you all night. Just have to brush up on your Spanish and Portuguese
To Eddie I agree...Lena is a hottie, , , , she is an awsome lapdancer....and there is this girl Tamara. She is also very hot dancer....does great pole work.......Oh and I like Vanessa she is also a great dancer, and her friend is "Amber" is coming back this month....she is also a hot DR....
Stopped by Wed and Sat night - Place is good, bunch of girls who are past there prime, but they did have a bunch of hot ones. Venessa from the DR is back, she is real cute, nice, and most important gives a great LD Goodtime - Lena is no youngster. She is hot, and takes real good care of herself. I remeber her from the Fiddle and Bow. Safe to say she in her 30's - not that it makes a difference with that body, face and LD talent
place was kind of low key, but I had a great time with Lena and Patricia...they are hot and give great dances.....I didn't leave till 400...peace
I like this place......no worries , no hassles.......girls are very nice, some are very old...and could use more younger girls. However , there are some young hot looking girls, , , and they are alot of fun. My favorite is young Columbian girl ..Lena...she is hot best dances .....love them titties ...
This place is a dump. It could be a decent place, but the mgmt doesn't have a clue. Too many old (and I mean OLD) brazilians working here. Just needs someone to run the place properly.
Yeah , , wss ther emOn and Tues.......Isabella was awsome had a great lapdance from her ...worth seeing her. On tues ..I went to see that black chick Honey, , , , , , she is hot ...she does excellent poile work..she has a hot body..great ass....and lot of fun......I am going back Fri and Sat..those are the days she works
Went there last night within the last 2 months, and I must say that there was a black girl and she was hot. She looked like a young Donna Summers, and the body of a goddess. Pefect breast size 6 pack, and an ass good enough for a white or black man. Talk about perfect. Pole work is not done in that place and she did everyhting from handstands to upside down flips. When I come back in a couple of days I will definetly get a dance from her.
....i came in last nite ...looking for a girl name Minerva........i have not been here for about 1 1/2 yrs........does anyone know where I can find her.........although there was a few pretty girls last nite...table dances were great ..:))
Isabella was here tonight, she quit gallaghers and is here at candle wood ever monday. last two weeks i've been there around 5 and she was already there both times. LD was not bad but not great, i've had better. she is hot though and surprisingly fun to talk to. the rest of the girls need to be upgraded though.
Isabella: What is her schedule? I see the bar open at 4pm. When is she there? At 4 or she start later at 8 or what time? Thanks!
I had a dance with Isabella(from Gallaghers 2000) Mon night, , , , , , she was totally hot....off the hook......and the manger that night doesn't bother you during the dances...I saw a couple of new dancers (Brazilian), but hot and fun to BS with....
Its located on 33ave and College Pt Blv. From the LIE ...take College Pt Blvd N bound.......about 2 - 3 miles..on the right side.......deep in the corner
I tried walking around to find it but I didn't see it, maybe I'm being stupid but I looked around and didn't see a Candlewood Inn. I tried calling the place but nobody picked up, where the hell is this place, and what does it look like from the outside?
Anybody see a girl name Gia........she was woking here a few weeks ago.....have not seen her for awhile. she is PR and Indian, , , , HOTT great dancer ...cool chick.......anyone knows when or where she might be ??
How much is a good tip? Are there usually people there early like around when it opens?
there are no CR or Vip rooms.........lapdances are done up against the wall and corner of the bar. Management are pretty cool with the lap dances..light touching and no direspecting the girls......lapdances are $20. i have been getting dances from isabella...she is by far the hottest girl around...great lapdances....
do they have lp, private, cr? and what are the prices? how much do the girls usually want for tip?
there is a mixed crowd, actually there is hardly any asian guys...more like whites/spanish /black bluecollars....and white collars ages are 21 - 60 ....mangaement seems very cool and laid back......great table dances there ...but the table dances are not topless. They go topless/g-string on the stage . I have not been there for twoo weeks...but the girls got better...
what's the crowd like who visit here ? lot of 50 year old asians guys from main street ? or is it a young crowd ?
to anyone.........yes there is a a taxi service from the 7 train to the bar......... but Roosevelt ave/Main is where you get off on the train....and you need only to walk up two short blocks from roosevelt to College pt...then make a right on College pt ..then walk down to 33rd ave .....the bar is in the corner of 33 and College pt. the walk is about 5-8 minutes.....but i would take a cab at nite, just to be safe.........
Is this place accessable via public transportation OR a short Taxi ride from 7 train Main street station?
Hey I was at the bar last night and saw Isabella(Brazilian Chick). She used to workat G2000/pumps during the day. Well she is back dancing and working at the wood. I had an awsome dance and time with her .....def a great chick. Infact, the bar is picking up...saw a few hotties last nite I am def coming back tonite to see her again. She is there on Mon..and Tues
I had not bin there in a long while. I went ther because of the 7/5 coment so I thought I would try it out again. The writer was correct. The place has picked up.The place is as friendly and low pressure as it all ways was also, the selection of lovey woman has increased. And best of all, NO THUGS.A great place to unwind. Keep up the good work.
hey place is picking up.......a few hotties here now.....a girl name Gia .....she 's hot and very cool........and a few new Brazilian girls also........smoking bodies
see guys snapping photos with there cameras all the time --- pls post some here.
Were is cumkwat????????????????????????????????????????????????
yes Sonia is there...she is there Tues and the weekend.......she is very sweet and pretty......
I haven't been to this club in at least six months. Can anybody tell me if the barmaid Sonya still works here. I think she has a really nice body for a woman in her forties and I have the hots for her. Anybody been here recently to let me know what else is going on here.
yo there are some nice looking hotties.....love Lina...she is awsome.....and this Betty gives an awsome lapdance . Overall girls are ok..prices are better than most clubs...
Loading dock? This place was a auto body shop. I had my car fixed there many times. I got a dent and thought I would go back there because the mechanics were good and found it closed and turned into a bar. I like the fact that the candle wood is still around. It was the first T bar I ever went to when I was 18. It was always an easy going place with Ok girls, but where can i get my car fixed now?
What a waste, old hags, LD done in the open, guys watching which made it uncomfortable, it does look like a loading dock. Killed my overpriced beer got the fuck out of there. Never again. Money grabbing, washed up skanks
love this place.........it is a hidden paradise.....love Lena's lapdances..hot columbian girl with big boobs......
You are the first to say this i find it amusing. Chinese guys..?? well .. all I can say is Good Luck in searching dream topless bar......Mr. Connoseaur!
To Mark: Your insults only shows I am right. I tasted your Grey Goose, and it was also switched. I suggest you stop cheating your patrons, and do the right thing. Your bartender told me that you are buying knock off liquior from a chineese guy, in an attempt to impress the owner, and show him how "smart you guys are" even though she and the other manager told you not to. Your are not smart your an @sshole, and a looser. Clean up your act, you make more by doing the right think.
To BELL... i think that you been playing with private parts alittle to long . The bar has not served Remy in months ......as far the Chivas Regal drink, and all the the rest ....they are all top shelf. I have a suggestion for you , maybe if you used the the opposite hand, instead of the one that you jerked off with, or fingered a pussy with during your many table dances , the drink will taste right.......:))
If you are looking for a few beers and a lapdance this is the place to go. The dances are done on stools in the corner but they are done so well you dont care about the lack of privacy.All the ladies I danced with did a great job.but ask for a little spanish girl named Amber. you wont regret it.
Beware *** these guys are switching up the top shelf liquior. i ordered a chivas regal and it tasted like junk, when i complained the barmaid immediatly offered me another drink. i then ordered a remy martin, it to was bogus. when i complained, without hesitation she offered another drink, when i told her that i was smart to there tricks she said she was sorry. i ordered a beer and left. ***you guys wake up!!!! you are charging $8 for top shelve liquior. charge $1 more if 700% profit is not enough, but do not think because we go and see topless women that we are stupid. i would of stayed with my boys and drank all night instead we left *** you guys are the stupid ones and you guys lost my business ***
Had a few real hot girls tonight. Not many people, so I really enjoyed the personal attention the girls gave me!!!

went to CW for the first time tonight and I really liked it, got a dance from vanessa, hot girl from DR, nice rack and nice ass, place was pretty dead for a friday night, at least thats what I thought, will go back.
Went to the Candlewood tonight and just got back.Had a couple of lap dances with Lena. My God she is freakin awesome. Lena ground the shit out of me.I love her big firm breasts, slender body and sexy smile. Some other new girls were there as well, they are a definite upgrade to what i saw there last time. But i am going to save my money and go back in a coulple of weeks for Lena...
Hey man the Wood was cool tonite ..a few great looking girls. Big B-day party for one of the barmaids.. Great food.....I had good time .....awsome dance from Betsy and Melissa
definately will try to be there on the 22nd. Sepending on finances. I hope ;-)
Thanks for getting back to me simon. i found out lena will be there on june 14, june 18th , and june 22nd. i hope this helps all the lena fans out there!
I'm back in NY after an eight year hiatus and have been to the Candlewood twice during the week and it is OK nothing special. I used to be a regular at the Fiddle & Bow before I left NY and was disapointed to see it was closed. The place was pretty wild about ten years ago does anyone know why it closed? Somebody told me that a spanish topless place called Oficina on 104St in Corona is pretty good. Anyone know anything about it I don't see it on this web site's club list? What is all this talk about this barmaid Sonya? Is she a hottie?
Replying to Jim and HEMAN-Sorry, don't know when Lena and Marta are there. They did comment that they either are at CW or Pumps or Fiddle Faddle(i hope i have the name right). I haven't been there in awahile. next time i go back i'll definately post.
JH Boy - Sonya dreams of being in love one day, but understands that everyone considers her an easy score - and would never date a guy she meets at work, unless she really trusted them, and thought that it would be long term. I have known her a very long time, she has worked at many many clubs, and most old timers know her. I am very surprised that know one grapped her up already - I think she would make a good girlfriend/wife.
MRQ - Thanks for the info on Sonya the barmaid. I was actually hoping she might be an easy score since she appears to be 40+ and single. I did get a sense that she is very nice. From your post it seems like she is a "good girl" and actually that makes her more intriguing.
Hey Simon does Lena really have a sister .......is she hot ...if so where does she work ..:))
Simon do me a favor, do u know the days that Lena and Marta are at Candlewood. Lena told me she is there on Saturdays and 2 weekdays. Any ideas on those days? Thanks!
I agree with you that Lena is amazing. she has a sister named Marta that is there on occasion. Both are highly recommended!!
I went to the candlewood for the first time last night. my buddy live close by so we said why not scope it out. the colombian girl lena is super hot long black hair, huge tits, skinny toned body and nice ass. she gave an amazing lapdance, some old broads in there should retire. Lena was aawesome, you have to have her.
