“The best bar.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

The best place in south area of rio de janeiro. They have amazing drinks (not over priced). The bottle service is really worth it; amazing prices from champagne to vodka. Service is very friendly and fast. they open early on weekends close by 4 am with good food. On weekends don't expect to find a table after 10PM. but the best part is just stay, have some drinks and meet new people. For me the only bad point, the lack of attendants that speak English. But they are so friendly you don't even notice the difference.

“Great bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great service and busy bar with beautiful people. Make sure to get there a bit before midnight to get a table. Cariocas (people from RIo) like to hang out outside with drinks for hours and do not mind the wait. The foreign people with me would get very annoyed with the wait..

“Nice place for drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

It's a nice bar for drinks but I wouldn't have dinner here. The menu has more tapas like food rather than dinner. We had bruschetta which was soggy and then a bowl of risotto and a bowl of rice with shrimps. Both portions were small and not really value for money. Drinks were nice so this place should be listed under bars and not restaurants.
