His case was sent to the Old Bailey, where a preliminary hearing is expected to take place on January 14, the Metropolitan Police said.
Mr Isman, 31 from Poplar in east London, died in hospital after suffering multiple gunshot wounds at about 3am on Boxing Day during a private function in the Avalon club on Shaftesbury Avenue. He was 31.
Dean Robinson, a 32-year-old barber, is charged with possession with intent to supply class A drugs and concealing criminal property and is expected to appear at Thames Magistrates' Court later today.
A third man, 31, who was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs and assisting an offender, has been bailed to return to an east London police station in late February pending further inquiries.
Three men also arrested in connection with the incident, aged 24, 31 and 34, remain on bail.
