The bar's idea is great. Very creative and you can take funny photos. Music is nice. Arrive early to avoid long queue. Food is OK. Sandwiches are tasteful and finger foods size are not too bad. But talking about drinks.... Avoid drinks, caipirinhas, mojitos, any...More

Best bar in Rio de Janeiro. Excelent atmosphere, best music and cold beer. The only remark is that you have to arrive early if you don´t want to stay a long time in the queue.

They have awesome drinks, cool music and best parties in Rio de Janeiro. The staff is always helpful and vibrant. Hookups are common and you'll probably dance until sunrise when you'll end up having a "saideira" in a nearby bar. They also have a hookah...More

This bar is at walking distance, like 5 min., from the place I was staying (Tupiniquim Hostel). It was full of gorgeous Brazilian girls. Highly recommended.

One of the few places in Rio where you can dance to rock. Music is great, beer is always cold and food... well, I would skip food. But I love this place to have fun and dance all night.

Inconsiderate to have guests waiting outside for 1:30 to enter this bar.. absolutely ridiculous... Either they want to show that the place is popular in total disrespect of the people outside or they are totally disorganized at the front door... Horrible experience!!!More

For me, Bukowski is the only night club in Rio if you like good music, opened space, varied environments and drinks. The public is not too young, although it's mixed. So for over 30s like me it's a great choice.
