LONDON CAIPIRINHA FESTIVAL 2017

The London Caipirinha Festival is the largest Brazilian cocktail and gastronomy competition of its type in the UK created to promote cachaça, the distilled spirit used to make a caipirinha, as well as a range of participating bars and restaurants across London.

The festival seeks to celebrate Brazil’s vivacious spirit, and in particular put one item from the country’s rich gastronomic heritage centre stage: the caipirinha.

Cafe Pacifico

There’s certainly an enduring appeal to this Mexican cantina on Langley Street – it’s been serving Covent Garden visitors since 1982 and shows little sign of letting up. Expect a fun and frenetic atmosphere, and a bit of a party vibe. Although a Mexican restaurant, it claims to serve one of the best Brazilian caipirinhas in London!

Salsa Bar Charing Cross

Located on Charing Cross Road in the centre of London’s West End, the Salsa bar and restaurant is the South American party heart of the capital. A great deal of effort has gone in to creating a truly Latin atmosphere here at Bar Salsa, starting with the décor which comes straight from a Rio guide book, bright colours blended with rough hewn wood for a rustic beach-bar look.

Comer, beber, dancar’ or ‘eat, drink, dance’ is the USP at Shoreditch’s Floripa.

Their Sunday roast with a Brazilian twist – picanha (top sirloin) beef and pão de queijo (cheese bread) yorkshire pudding – is worth investigating’. Weekends see the place opening until 3am with DJs spinning funk, reggae, disco and ’50s rock ’n’ roll on various nights.

A great new bar in an unlikely location, the heart of Chinatown.
