So it's almost New Years Eve again...how did that happen?!?
We know what it's like trying to find the right location and the right mix of music and entertainment, all at the right price. Well fear not, Floripa has the answer! Our New Years Eve Carnival party is guaranteed to tick all the boxes!
Floripa celebrates everything that is unique to Brazilian and London culture and all that's in-between, blending soulful, funky music with live entertainment, the best cocktails to be found in the city and exceptional food. Here are some great reasons why you should spend your New Year with us:
Generic party DJs playing generic party tunes? Hell no! At our Carnival party you can expect to hear everything Latin, funk, afrobeat, batucada, samba, bossa nova, new breed R&B, hip hop, pop, rock, soul and many other dance crazes to shake your tail feather to. Check out details of the full line up below.
Our head chef will be preparing a veritable three course banquet of scrumptious fusion cooking, just right to see the year out and an absolute bargain at only £40 per head including entry to the party. Space is limited for dinner so be sure to book early! Check out our website for more details.
We are located in Shoreditch, easy to get to and pretty much the centre of the known world right?
Each and every person will be given a complimentary drink to toast the new year in with courtesy of our lovely friends at El Jimador and Bacardi. Thanks guys!
Floripa has something for everyone: we are a Brazilian influenced restaurant, a bar for the globe, a London bloc party, an idyllic sunset circus and much, much more.
Our moto is: Comer, Beber, Dancar! - Eat, Drink, Dance! - and we hope you'll do just that.
For one very special night only we will have head to head DJ combat as our residents Radio Floripa, Gringo da Parada and Ross Clarke battle it out against Get in the Groove London DJs Healer Selecta and Adrian Gibson. This is sure to be one hell of an experience:
RADIO FLORIPA has been spinning their trademark genre bending samba-hiphop-dance-floor-stupidity style tunage since we opened our doors last year . A lot of great things have come out of Paris and one of the finest exports in recent years has to be GRINGO DA PARADA. He revels in adventurous eclecticism, inventive juxtaposition, rare and racy tunes that celebrate the wilder side of life while also moving music forward. Parada's sets are more than music they are an experience. Apparently he was runner up in Frenchman of the Year in London to our other export DJ ce soir !
ROSS CLARKE aka El Capitain is a veteran of the London party scene. He is the co-founder of Lovebox Festival and the creative force behind Floripa's eclectic party nights. He also looks a lot like The Dude from The Big Lebowski which is a bonus in our books! Having DJed everywhere from the Hacienda to Rio, LA and New York he's happiest in his home village – Shoreditch.
GET IN THE GROOVE LONDON will be bringing you not one but two internationally acclaimed DJs in the form of HEALER SELECTA and ADRIAN GIBSON. When these two music heads team up to spin their finest rare and classic vinyl 45s, their feel good vibe is sure to make all your bones groove! Both have taken on large and small dance floors alike, from Glastonbury Festival to the Jazz Cafe, and are two truly solid stones of the London music scene.
Time Out Magazine says"where Healer Selecta goes the party is sure to follow". While GQ Magazine says "it is virtually impossible not to dance when Adrian Gibson is in the mix"and we agree! You can expect the best in eclectic classics and rare smashers from the 1950s, 60s and 70s...literally something for everyone!
And if that isn't enough to get you into the carnival spirit then we will also be having live music from MARACATU ESTRELA DO NORTE, a London-based group playing music from the Pernambuco region of northeast Brazil. They play a vibrant style of music that is rooted in Afro-Brazilian culture and goes straight to the soul! The group have performed at numerous major events including Glastonbury Festival and Notting Hill Carnival and are sure to bring an authentic carnival atmosphere to proceedings.
Get ready rock n roll, boogaloo, samba and swing your way into 2013!
