Again, not a bar, but an area with several bars. The best pace to have lunch after a day at the beach. Go to Braseiro or Hipodromo (2 bars) and order a Picanha (rump steak) with a Batata Portuguesa (kind of french fries). If it's a Thursday night, just go there to drink some beers - you can buy at the bar or from the people that sell in the streets, and enjoy it. It may sound strange, but we like crowded places and drinking at the street.
