Copacabana at bunga bunga

Missed the boat with booking your Brazilian beach holiday in time for Rio Carnival, fear not, head riverside rather than seaside, and join in the Cocobananas Rio Carnival Party, on Friday 13th February, above Bunga Bunga, on Battersea Bridge Road.

Celebrating the world’s biggest carnival, for one night only, Cocobananas will transform it’s laid back beach shack into a one-stop-party-shop of carnival craziness. Guests will be welcomed with complimentary whistles, before being sashayed away by sexy samba dancers to have themselves decorated as decadently as the bar staff, (who will be hidden behind their feather headdresses), with free festive face painting.

An array of colourful, carnival themed, Cachaca filled Caipirinhas, (so extensive, that the lucky ones will even be in with a chance to match their drink to their dress), will be available, and Bossa Nova beats will be blended with various Latin American Electro, raising the heat on the dancefloor, before it’s cleared for two especially steamy Samba performances. Last but not least, there will be blown up animals around the place– of course – what Brazilian party would be complete without raving rainforest revelers!?

Cocobananas takes guests straight to the heart of a Latin American beach party. Set over two floors, the nightclub is a celebration of all things Brazilian, with a décor evoking the vibrant beach shacks found throughout the country. Design features include vintage surfboards, palm trees, distressed plantation shutters, and a reproduction of Rio’s iconic Christ the Redeemer Statue. Guests can unwind in the upstairs caipirinha bar, which offers the perfect holiday soundtrack and atmosphere.

The Inception Group also own and operate Chelsea speakeasy Barts, 80s themed nightclub, Maggie’s, the acclaimed Bunga Bunga, an Englishman’s Italian, Bar, Pizzeria and Karaoke, and Mr Fogg’s, a Mayfair bar modeled on the home of Jules Verne’s most famous adventurer, Phileas Fogg. Last December they also launched Beaver Lodge, a cabin bar and dance saloon based on the winter cowboy log cabins found in Wyoming.

So get all kinds of festival freaky, this Friday 13th at Cocobananas
