WELFARE AT RICCO LONDON
Your health and safety is our priority.
Come and see us if you need help.
Let our team know if you feel unwell
If you start to feel unwell, let any member of our team know right away or head to the welfare tent which is at the rear of the club next to the smoking area. There are always medics on site as well as a dedicated welfare team whose job it is to look after you. We will not judge you if you come and see us for this reason.
Look after each other
Keep an eye out for your friends and fellow clubbers. If they start to appear unwell or uncomfortable, then check if they’re ok and let our staff know if you’re worried about them. We all want a safe and friendly space where we help each other.
A free water bar is located at every bar. Remember to sip water regularly throughout the night but don’t down it too fast.
Take regular air-breaks
We usually have a relaxation garden, where you can sit down for a moment, take a breath and grab a drink.
Arrange a meeting point with your friends
We might have patchy phone signal inside the venue so it’s a good idea to pre-arrange a meeting spot for your mates if you get separated. The best place for this is by the front dooroutside this is also our smoking area.
Let us deal with harassment
We operate a zero tolerance to harassment for all of our guests whatever your gender, sexual preference or background. If someone is making you feel uncomfortable then let us know - all our staff are trained to deal with incidents of harassment. Our full policy can be found here.
