Check out some of the new bar and restaurant openings in Rio

Pay homage to Alfredinho at Bip Bip

Alfredinho, a giant of Copacabana’s cultural landscape, died at the beginning of March 2019. However, his bar, Bip Bip, lives on. Inconspicuously located on a side street a block away from the beach, this shrine to Rio bohemia hosts free and informal – yet virtuoso – musical sessions of choro (Monday and Tuesday) bossa nova (Wednesday) and samba (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Look out for special events during April on the bar’s Facebook page.

Date: 8pm-4am, Mon to Sat; 7pm-1am Sun

Place: Alm. Gonçalves 50, Loja D, Copacabana

Visit Canastra Rosé

Canastra Rosé is the latest creation from the masterminds behind Salomé Bistrô in Leme, Le Pulê in Ipanema, and the original Canastra, also in Ipanema. Following their successful formula, this two-story restored mansion on Botafogo’s buzzing Rua Álvaro Ramos serves cocktails, wine, and churrasco (Brazilian barbecue) snacks against an Instagram-friendly background of tropical plants and retro furniture.

Date: 6:30pm-2am Tues-Fri, 6:30pm-12am Sat, Botafogo

With a few cafes, restaurants and bed and breakfasts, it is the perfect place to while away a Sunday listening to one of the best samba troupes in the city for free (if you get there before 6pm).
