Experience the carnival atmosphere of Brazil at Nottingham’s Tropeiro restaurant


By February, most people will have had enough of the dark nights and cold weather. But at Nottingham’s Tropeiro there will be a chance to sizzle in the good times of Brazil’s famous Rio Carnival with a series of events which taking place this month.

Located just a stone’s throw from the Old Market Square, in an area buzzing with restaurants and bars, Tropeiro is housed inside a grand, palace-like building and is a meat lover’s paradise. Guests can choose from 12 cuts of freshly-roasted, succulent chicken, pork, beef or lamb, which is carved before your eyes at your table. But don’t worry if you don’t like meat – there is also a vegetarian menu as well as a salad bar with 20 choices.

Tropeiro is also the perfect destination for families and groups of friends, as well as couples looking for something a bit more lively than the usual Valentine’s Day dinner.

The carnival begins on 13th February with a night of live music, vibrant colours and carnival costumes, with FREE cocktail shots for anyone who comes dressed for a carnival. And as Valentine’s Day approaches, the atmosphere will become a bit more intimate though no less exciting. Love birds can indulge their passion for food – and each other – with a special menu which includes the exclusive Brazilian Rose cocktail and a sumptuous chocolate fondue sharing dessert.

On 15th February, the carnival will once again be in full swing with a family celebration and live music from 1pm. And the party doesn’t end there – as the carnival closes for another year the exotic cocktails will still be flowing and there will be an opportunity to win a meal for two by completing the comment card after your meal.

Carnival time is a time for celebration and having lots of fun, and Tropeiro will certainly offer just that. So dust off your feathers, grab your partner or a group of friends and head into Nottingham city centre to party the Brazilian way!
