Fancy a trip to London? Cocktails ahoy!

Hello RateMyPlacement fans!

As you’re probably aware by now, RMP hq is based in the unique setting of Vauxhall in the City of London.  Why do I alert your attention to this?  It’s because we are a stones throw away from some of the most amazing, cool, ironic, crazy and just plain wacky establishments in one of the best cities in the world.  Curious?  Then read on to find out more….

As Marketing Manager at RMP, I feel it is my duty to give you an insider view on a few of the best haunts in London and tempt you to come and visit!  I also have a cheeky prize for someone who likes and shares my blog from our good friends down at Kanaloa, a seriously cool bar on the list below!  So enjoy and remember to share, SHARE, SHARE!

The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town 

This is one seriously cool bar, located behind a SMEG fridge door (like the one below) in a new Breakfast Club in Spitalfields.  The Breakfast Club is bang smack in the heart of Shoreditch and you have to ask one of the staff to have a drink; only then will you be allowed behind the fridge door and down into the secret basement bar, for those “in-the-know”.  Now go hunt down that SMEG fridge to be part of the action!


I have very fond memories of Circus as I spent my 25th birthday here (yes I am 25 before you comment!).  As the name suggests, this establishment is one hell of a circus, complete with crazy performers who bend in places you wouldn’t think were possible!  Insiders tip: You don’t need to spend lots of dollar on dinner as you can hire out the bar area for free!  Perfect if you’re trying to save on pennies but want to add a bit of spice to your evening and be entertained by some of the top, wackiest performers in the business…you have to see it to believe it!

Ssssh it’s a Secret…..

…..cinema!  Quite possibly the coolest thing to do in London at the moment.  Find out more at but make sure you don’t tell anyone….


Well, if you haven’t heard about this club, where have you been?!  Put on your flower lays, don your beach frocks head down to the tropical paradise that is Kanaloa.  Who needs a trip abroad when you can sip some cocktails as seen in picture below?  We’ve hosted two of our fantastic Summer Intern Parties at Kanaloa and will be hosting the third one in August so watch this space for more info coming soon.  With tiki bars galore, pumping beach tunes, and a mermaid at the door to greet guests, something tells me Summer has officially arrived in London ;).

Here’s the fun part….

One of you lucky people reading this blog WILL WIN TWO AWARD-WINNING COCKTAILS AT KANALOA!  To win, all you need to do is SHARE THIS BLOG and let us know what cocktail you want, simple as that!

I hope this blog has got you in the mood to visit London and try out some of more quirky, unusual and exciting haunts.  Until next time…..enjoy a cocktail (or two) and remember to share this blog!
