What they say:

Floripa is the nickname of a Balearic style city-island off the coast of Brazil, the short form of the beautiful and unique flower of Ipanema and a brand new venue in Shoreditch where Brazil and London come together in a hedonistic bohemian cultural fusion. Our aim is to take the classic elements of Brazilian cuisine and remix them, take the best of London€™s incredible music scene and re-cook it and take a South American beach bar and re-present cocktails sipped on the cabana€™s of Ipanema and Florianopolis. Floripa mixes all convivialities €“ we are a Brazilian influenced restaurant, a bar for the globe, a London bloc party club, an Ipanema-inspired colonial bordello, an idyllic sunset circus and indeed none of the above. Of this we are sure at least €“ contradiction is our métier. The clash of cultures is not a war but a love-in where unadulterated fusion is always better than the real thing. The melting-pot-friendly magpie-like character of London sets it apart from other European cities and as Londoners and citizens of the world we celebrate destabilising the established order of things with Brazil as our springboard and benchmark.

What we say:

Previously known as Favela Chic, this new Shoreditch bar is arriving with a big brazilian smile and is ready to bring something fresh to the London scene. Floripa is a perfect London party venue and the famous Florpia bloc party on friday and saturday nights offers a top night out in London with dinner, drinks and dancing till 2am. Try out their delicious cocktails and fine Brazilian wines and party with an international crowd all focused on dancing their hearts out to the party beats and anthems. Floripa hosts live music throughout the week and is a great London bar for checking out unsigned and independent music acts in London.
