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.

It was from the Senzalas that much of Brazilian culture developed, such as Capoeira and popular dishes like Feijoada stew. We named our creperie ‘Senzala’ in tribute to those who formed our Brazilian roots and influences.

WM Barker


Mr William M. Barker, the eponymous founder of our infamous, secret, underground cocktail bar, is both a figure of past and present.

Originally, Will was a wine and brandy merchant from the 1800s, he owned the building which in the basement we now, 200 years later, call home. In his younger years Will was, an academic, Victorian party boy and very much a gentleman about town. He would be surrounded by his famous friends and possessions of the finest quality, he was nothing less than the Beau of Bishopsgate, and for us, that’s who he’ll always be.

Today, we are ever aware of Will’s presence and he lives on in our shrub cocktail collections, in the secret underground bar itself, and through his captivating team; Will’s kid’s, as they are known by all around. So if you ever hear us talking about Will, or Will’s place, you’ll now know who we are talking about.

So don’t be a stranger, join us, cocktails will always be waiting for you here.
