The sheer number of bars in Rio de Janeiro makes the process of finding a venue that offers an authentic Brazilian experience a little thankless. Fortunately, this Traditional Carioca Bars Tour has already done the hard graft and sourced a selection of wonderful bars for you to enjoy. Meet fellow travelers, mingle with locals, swap stories, sample classic Brazilian drinks, and embark on a journey through the trendy Lapa neighbourhood past many of the city’s iconic landmarks.

Beginning at 3pm, your guides for the day will meet you at Teatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro, before leading you to Amarelinho Bar; your first drinking hotspot. Instantly recognisable for its fluorescent yellow awning set against the elegant Praça Floriano, this haunt is a popular lunchtime spot with Cariocas and makes for an ideal setting to start your tour. From there, you will bar-hop your way through the delights of downtown Rio, stopping at such watering holes as Bar Luiz, one of Rio’s oldest cervejarias (pubs); Bar Nova Capela, a classic old time eatery popular with artists and musicians; Bar Brasil, an alehouse with a distinctly German influence; and Adega Flor de Coimbra, a regular bohemian hangout since it opened its doors in 1938. The tour finishes at the foot of the famous Escadaria Selarón, the wonderfully colourful stairway that has become a symbol of the Lapa neighbourhood – the perfect backdrop for some farewell photos with your new found drinking companions.

Brazilians love to party. Let the locals show you where to go and how to do it in style.
