NileGuide Expert tip:
Head here on Friday or Saturday nights for live samba performances and a lively atmosphere
Croquettes are a staple item on the bar snacks menu of many Rio drinking establishments, but at Bar du Bom they have become the focal point of the venue's culinary offerings. Here they can be found in some 30-plus varieties, including smoked cheese and calabresa, lamb and mint sauce, and even sweet varieties such as a lip-smackingly good chocolate croquette served with vanilla ice cream. Order a few between friends for the perfect companion to some ice cold beers. There is a good range of imported ales on offer here, as well as Stella Artois and Brazilian beers on tap.
