So named due to its location close to Posto Nove-also known as lifeguard post nine, the trendiest spot to hang out on Ipanema Beach-this popular kiosk has been serving drinks and snacks to thirsty beach bunnies for many years. As well as serving the ubiquitous bottled Skol and Brahma beers, Quiosque Quase Nove is famous for its exotic takes on the traditional caipirinha. Here, as well as serving the drinks with sugar cane rum, sugar and crushed ice, the bartenders will whip up tasty versions made with tropical fruits such as cupuaca, pitanga and graviola. While these lack translations in English, rest assured that they make deliciously different cocktail ingredients! Good bar snacks and live music in the evenings complete the relaxed scene.
