A place to try different drinks than the tradicional mojitos and caipirinhas, although a little expensive. The place has a great atmosphere and decoration.

Great drinks, great crowd, overall solid scene for cocktails, especially on the 3rd-floor rooftop area. Note that this is a cocktail/social bar, not a disco/dance club, so go in with the right expectation and enjoy!

This bar&restaurant has a relaxed vibe, range of music from coffee to club, and a superb cocktails and wine list. I highly recommend this spot.

Not really, they open in the evening with a more adult hangout bar vibe.
