A 21st century enlightenment coffeehouse: introducing Rawthmells
Situated above the Vaults, Rawthmells is a new all-day dining option at RSA House (8:30am – 8:30pm) offering quality food from CH&CO and casual seating across a variety of spaces, which also gives access to superb thought provoking content delivered by the RSA events team. Designed to get the conversation started, Rawthmells makes a fantastic new option for socialising pre-or-post event, as well as being an inspiring co-working space.
Creating the enlightenment coffeehouse has involved a significant amount of work including the transformation of two entire floors of RSA House over a 9 month period, and opening up hidden parts of the building for the very first time. Rawthmells is a natural home for anyone who wants to change the world, enabling people to connect, share knowledge, collaborate, and drink good coffee.
