barzinho

Tuesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Check out Barzinho, a cozy new hangout with colorful and chic decor, conveniently located in the heart of Lapa, making it an ideal place to meet for a few beers after work to wind down or kick off the night. Barzinho was opened by Fabio Batistella and Rodrigo Pena, who also run popular Meza bar and lounge in Humaitá. Any fans of the latter should definitely try the new venue.

Enjoy their tasty menu, which features classic petiscos with a new twist, such as fried chicken coated with parmesan accompanied by catupiry cream. Or you can chill-out with a well-earned beer or caipirinha after a tiring work day, while checking out their artful decorations.
