If you want to get comfy with a beer, a bite to eat, and the big match, Rio de Janeiro pubs are the place to do it.
Our number one pick, the Lord Jim Pub in Leblon, is a real home from home for British ex-pats, and has successfuly managed to recreate the style and ambience of a cosy British pub right in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. With big screens and British pub grub, this is the ideal spot to watch international sports games.
Of course, every city must have at least one Irish Pub, and Rio de Janeiro is no exception. Of several Irish Pubs in Rio, Shenanigan's is the liveliest, and there's a real party atmosphere most nights.
Meanwhile, the carioca take on the pub is the boteco,
casual spots serving food and drink. One of the oldest and kookiest botecos in Rio de Janeiro is Bar do Gomes, in Santa Teresa, which gets very lively on Friday and Saturday nights.
