“Great hangout spot”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Balcony Bar is the evening chill out spot in Rio. It's up on the Leme end of the Copacabana beach. After you eat dinner head up here for the late night chill action. Getting a table can be tricky sometime, my advice is to tip the hostess good the first visit and he/she will always find you a table. Best deal is the big beer tower ~$25. Pizza is good too.

“Interesting..”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Best word for this place is interesting...

Watched the brazil Mexico match here which was an incredible spectacle as the bar was full of Mexicans.

For families this place isn't the best as its crawling with prostitutes. This was no real problem as they stick to the wealthy looking tourists, but could be a bit off putting for families.

Food was surprisingly good with a wide selection.
