WHAT IS FLORIPA?
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 recook it and take a South American beach bar and re-present cocktails sipped on the cabana's of Ipanema and Florioponalis.
Floripa is for every cool London season from Mad May mornings to Autumn's Fashion Week, Deep Midwinter nights and those rare long summer days in between.
Floripa is from 50's South Americana - the bossa beach vibe to 21st Century London's Babel like Hub of the World.
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 - contradicton 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 destabilizing the established order of things with Brazil as our spring board and benchmark.
Come join the contrary. Viva a revolução
Floripa - Egality, fraternity and liberty Brazilondra style!
