Tucked away behind the middle-class suburb of Botafogo, unassuming Laranjeiras is steadily establishing itself as a prime spot for eating, drinking, and socializing. The price of property here, comparatively cheap for the Zona Sul, has led to an abundance of independent bars, restaurants and nightclubs along the tree-lined streets with hip, young Cariocas heading here in their droves after dark. Head here on a Saturday night and enjoy a meal and drinks at Bar do Serafim, at Rua Alice 24, before heading to Casa Rosa, at Rua das Laranjeiras 550, to samba until the early hours.
