Veloso Bar, at the corner of its namesake street, is a quintessential boteco. Opened in 2005, the pub is perennially buzzing with locals and expats, and the infectious energy spills out onto the cobbled-stone pavement. Liquor bottles, frames, music posters and football jerseys dot the walls of the rustic and unassuming establishment. On offer are an array of traditional specialties like feijoada, meatballs, escondidinho and chicken drumsticks. Their coxinhas (pear-shaped chicken croquettes) are some of the best in town. The caipirinha, popular cocktail and Brazil's pride, is concocted with seasonal fruits and has won the place accolades aplenty.
