Once a firm fixture on London’s heady nightlife scene, it’s no surprise that Nick House decided to make a career out of clubbing. His company – Nick House Entertainment – boasts an ever-expanding portfolio of plush party-orientated properties, including Mahiki and Whisky Mist, many of which are frequented by the capital’s coolest club kids. His latest venture, Kanaloa, is a joint project between himself, Piers Adam, Girls Aloud wild child Sarah Harding and her DJ boyfriend Tom Crane. Offering a vibrant venue in the heart of the City, Nick’s latest offering – which opened just before Christmas – is geared, somewhat surprisingly for the financial district, towards a female crowd. The interiors are decked out in a distinct Polynesian theme, with fresh flower arrangements, lush green plants, tropical furnishings, Tiki carvings, bamboo chairs and tables, and a quaint wooden bridge. As you’d expect, the cocktail menu is rum-based, with a number of different concoctions to help you prop up the bar. Clearly, there’s no bringing this House down.
