This traditional samba and beer bar has been the meeting place of many Brazilian intellectuals, politicians, musicians, and actors since the late 1940s. Although refurbished in the early 2000s, Bar Brahma sticks to tradition with its wooden furniture, dark wood paneling, mirrors, and intimate lighting. The original piano from its early days is also still in use. Bar Brahma hasn't lost any of its iconic charm, and is as bustling as its location at the intersection of Avenida Ipiranga and Avenida São João. Not surprisingly, Brahma draft beer is the drink of choice here. The kitchen serves up tasty Brazilian pub food, such as bolinho de bacalhau (deep-fried cod dumplings) and picanha steak marinated in beer. There are around 1,500 live performances a year—check the bar's website for the schedule of shows.
