NileGuide Expert tip:
During important sports matches, a minimum consumption charge comes into play at the Lord Jim. You'll be required to spend a minimum of R$15-20 on food and drink, but that's easily done given the range of good beers and tasty foods on offer.
Football to the British, soccer to the Americans and Futebol to the Brazilians, there's no questioning the popularity of the 'Beautiful Game' in Rio. With the World Cup 2010 kicking off in June, the Lord Jim pub is the ideal spot for international visitors to cheer on their team without incurring fierce looks from patriotic Brazilians rooting for their national side. The Lord Jim pub quite convincingly recreates the look and the atmosphere of a traditional English drinking den, and it's a popular spot for locals to get together and communicate in their native tongue - even the bar staff here speak fluent English. A range of British beers and ales, together with traditional dishes like fish and chips, make this a hit with homesick ex-pats, and there's no livelier spot to catch and England game during the World Cup 2010 championship.
