Wilton's Music Hall - East London

The crumbling Wilton’s is a brilliant venue even without live entertainment, beginning life as an ale house in 1743 before becoming a grand music hall in the mid-19th century. On Mondays you can often catch great world music for free in The Mahogany Bar, plus there’s ‘pay what you can’ aperitivo. There’s also a four-day Global Beats festival starting Aug 14, with music from all corners of the planet (Senegal, Japan and Brazil, to name but a few).       

£8+, Global Beats is on Aug 14-17, 7pm-11pm

Floripa - Shoreditch

A brilliant Brazilian-themed bar (above) sitting pretty among the gritty madness of Great Eastern Street, Floripa not only serves up mean cachaça-heavy cocktails and Latin flavours, but also lashings of live music every week, getting the punters dancing on tables. DJs spin Latin and house tunes this Saturday and Brazilian beats ambassador DJ Cliffy will kick out the world music for a Floripa Bloc Party on July 19. We also have to mention the rap/ opera fusion night (July 23), for sheer peculiarity. Plus, it’s free!
