Our friends at Barrio North are putting a load of parties for carnival this weekend, with the last due being Tuesday the 24th. There’s £3 Abelha caipirinhas all night, free brasilian food, samba and b-boys. DJ Limão is playing a load of Rio Funk and carnival tunes and it’s also raising money for Action for Brazil’s Children.
For those of you that haven’t been, Barrio North is a latin vibe DJ bar on Essex Road (Angel tube is 5 mins), great cocktails, friendly staff, and gets dancey-busy with a good looking N1 crowd Thursday through til Saturday. They also have a goddamn caravan right in the middle of the bar, and serve a mean caipirinha (made with the finest small batch cachaça from Bahia – that’s Abelha Cachaça, for those of you who are slow to catch on!!) too.
