Named after the famous American author, Bar Bukowski is a firm favorite with Rio's young bohemians. The converted colonial building regularly features live music on the top floor, while DJs spin indie and alternative tunes downstairs. The venue also features a large outdoor drinking area with comfy seating and a bar. In a somewhat surreal touch, on the upper floor you'll find a roped-off lounge area where dwarves wander around supplying free Shisas (flavored tobacco pipes) to bewildered-looking drinkers. Spirits and cocktails here are pricey, but draught beers are reasonable. Call ahead for details.
