Sitting pretty among the snack bars and Michelin-starred, unmarked restaurants in Arakicho, Ipanema serves as a local gathering spot and is the perfect place to start a night of bar-hopping. During the day, the light, comfy space is filled with locals nursing cups of Brazilian coffee, while evenings see occasional bossa nova gigs accompany all the caipirinha-sipping. Check out their website for schedule details and new additions to the café menu.
