It's a small, less-than-impressive neighborhood pavement bar - so what has made Bar Bracarense such a legend among Rio's many watering holes? Since its establishment, Braca, as it is affectionately known, has been attracting hordes of hungry and thirsty locals on their way to and from work or the beach. The perfectly chilled draft beer, the delicious salgadinhos (bar snacks) and the excellent service all add to bar's recipe for success, and its popularity with beachwear-clad Leblon lovelies has long been a draw for many a male drinker. But it's the relaxed ambiance, good mix of people, lively post-work happy hour, and plentiful pavement tables and chairs that really raise this bar above the competition.
