Comer. Beber. Dançar. Eat, drink, dance. That's all everyone needs in life, right? Right. Thank goodness for Brazilian-style Bar and cultural institution Floripa, which infuses some authentic Brazilian life into the Shoreditch area of London. And what a wonderful place to be it is – to quote Floripa's website: 'a fascinating mix of London bloc party club, Ipanema inspired colonial bordello (ahem), an idyllic sunset circus' – and at the same time being none of the above. Taking a page from the original city of Floripa, an island-become-city just off the coast of Brazil's southern region, this exceptional place makes for an amazing way to spend a night out on town.
There's this misty and rainy air going full-time, London's trademark, and you haven't seen a ray
of sun in – what, weeks? You're almost certain it's been weeks, but it sure feels longer. Think you
might be in need of some vacation? How do mile-long beaches and light blue, salty water sound
like? That's what we thought. Come take a short trip to Floripa, an urban conglomerate on an island
just off the coast of Brazil. This is the place Floripa in Shoreditch takes its inspiration from. And
they are doing it well, mind you: Open Mic sessions. Pancake Parties (yes). Concerts and club gigs
of up-and-coming acts. Add to this a wide variety of Brazilian style cocktails and expertly tended
drinks, and you're well on your way to enjoying an extraordinary night, Brazil-style.
Brazilian cuisine is in a class of its own: Equally tasty and healthy, the seasonal varieties are reflected in Floripa's ever-handwritten menu. Come and enjoy authentic feijoada, Hand of God style Steaks or Pao de Queijo. Floripa offers larger groups of guests a special menu and also offers to cater to special needs – just give them a bit of notice. Apart from the staples like feijoada you'll find a wide array of specialties, including delicious petiscos and salgados. If you happen to find yourself yearning for a healthy dose of sun, great music, and some South American lifestyle, just drop by Great Eastern St in Shoreditch. Floripa warmly welcomes you.
