Didn't try the restaurant downstairs but went purely for the Bossa Nova scene they have going on upstairs. Had a really fun night and perfect for anyone trying to get some Bossa Nova culture in whilst visiting Rio. The guy who was singing even explained...More

I love little clubs like this, and we caught Toni Barreto, a decent bosa nova guitar player singer, and then Anrea Montezuma, excellent saucy Brazilian lady singer. The club is small, and sort of has New York Village folk bar feel, the drinks are varied,...More

We did come for the music, but made the mistake of also eating here. Very much below par. They admitted they didn't make most of the food on site but bought it in (pastel, bolinho, etc.). The wine list is pathetic, the food edible but...More

This is a small little club on a second floor in Ipnama...kind of retro . It barely promotes itself. We recommend you stay with beer or simple drink and just spend your money on the cover charge. It features an introductory act and a main...More

It is a pity, it is such an authentic bar with nice music, I did a good "NGO" action by buying a CD from the singer RITA PORTO instead of buying one from a music shop. When I arrived back home in South Africa the...More

Smells like urine as soon as you walk up stairs. Ordered a caprihina was brought to me in 30 seconds. Obviously pre made mix. The charge a entrance fee. I would not eat here with the pee smell. Gross!!!

We went for launch, odered one fish dish and one meat dish. The meat was okey, very simple with caned palm hearts as a side dish. The fish was a defrosted fish. I believe that for more then 65 € for 2 plates and a...More

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
