We are back with another instalment of quality music. If you haven’t been to a Band Republic night, things are done slightly differently. The night usually consists of four different acts, from country to indie, pop to rock, playing three songs in the first half, and three more in the second half after an interval.
Gone are the days when the public will be hoodwinked into buying something just because it has a great marketing campaign. We want... Read more

Every Sunday we will be creating the perfect Sunday chill out scene, with the screening of classic Brazilian and music related films throughout the afternoon, think anything from The Aristocats to Searching for Sugarman to Chico and Rita. Entry will be complimentary from 3pm for a 3.30pm start. (Roast dinner starts at 1pm).
Later on and to further enhance the Sunday session vibe there will be a themed DJ set inspired by the films that have been previously screened… This will follow with a live jazz set from the Jazz Meet Resident Band and special guests.
We have your perfect Sunday all wrapped up!
Last week Floripa had the honour of being featured in Time Out’s blog in their Top 5 Secret London Spots! Sssh, dont tell anyone or the secret will get out…
‘Tropical decor, killer cocktails (try the lemon daiquiri), great food and live music… all the best bits of a great night out. Their sunday roast with a Brazilian twist – picanha (top sirloin) beef and pão de queijo (cheese bread) yorkshire pudding – is a must!’

So many good times. B-boys breaking, half-naked, apron wearing, Frenchmen, musical bingo, and a Coverdrive video shoot. Only a few of the memories that made up Floripa’s first year. So many great acts to thank, so many magical nights, and it’s almost finally time to celebrate the momentous occasion of Floripa turning one. The party will be Wednesday, November 21st and many of our favorite acts from the past 12 months will be performing along with new talent to kick off the second year.
We also want to thank all of you! Thanks for dancing, drinking, laughing, and reminding everyone, including the staff, that we can still escape to Brazil, even after a long day in London.... Read more
