This place is very nice boteco, it is like any other boteco (bar) in Lapa in Rio. If you are hungry you have available lots of appetizers (if you are hungry) and very cold beers and caipirinhas. I would recommend to go there in a boteco hopping night.

This is a three floor bar and live music show house in the heart of the Lapa entertainment district. Due to the recent fire tragedy in S. Brasil, occupancy limits and fire escapes have recently been reviewed at all Rio bars/clubs/show houses and actually enforced, which means arrive early on Friday/Saturday nights if you wish to venture to the third...

Nice option to go if you have good friends you want to spend some time after work with. On a Thursday, the music (before 11pm) was not loud, so we could easily talk to anyone around the table. There were a few options to eat and beer brands to choose, but food were tasty and beer were cold. Nothing more... More

Went here randomly on a Thursday night, there was a band on the main floor and we thought the place was dead until we headed to the third floor and that's where the party was. Joao Gabriel was performing - drinks were inexpensive and cover was reasonable. Crowd was fun & lively. People were friendly & music was great. Fun... More
