About your host

I am a freelance food and travel writer with 9 years experience of working in Rio de Janeiro. I've had my food and travel articles published in newspapers and magazines including National Geographic and The Sunday Times (UK). I created Rio's first food tour company in 2013. My partners are Vinicius and Marie-Lou. We are culinary guides, cachaça enthusiasts, and experts on where to find the most…

What we’ll do

We'll start the night in a traditional bar in the heart of Rio's bohemian Lapa neighborhood. Here we'll get things going with ice-cold beers and traditional bar food (you don't go bar-hopping on an empty stomach!). Next up we'll make our way through the bustling streets to visit an ancient hole-in-the-wall bar to taste a selection of cachaças (Brazil's national spirit). Now that you're warmed…

What I’ll provide

Snacks, Appetisers, Dinner and Tasting menu
We've designed the 'menu' for the night so that you will try a really wide variety of delicious and authentic Brazilian bar food classics. Instead of one big meal that weighs you down all night, there'll be a succession of delicious bites so you'll end the night perfectly satisfied.
Apertif, Beer, Cocktail, Spirits and Water
A selection of the drinks that fuel Rio's thrilling nightlife of samba and fun. There'll be craft beers, potent caipirinha cocktails, artisanal cachaças and fruity 'batida' shots. We don't skimp on the drinks, so you'll finish the night decidedly merry!
Car
We'll take a short Uber ride to get from Lapa to the North Zone and another to get back to Lapa before the end of the night.

What to bring

Umbrella if it's raining
Money for your taxi home at the end of the night (or sign up to Uber)
If you have a food allergy, please remember to bring your emergency medication

Where you'll be

We'll start at an old bar that is one of my favorite 'galeto' (spit-roast chicken) places in Rio. Our second venue is an ancient hole-in-the-wall cachaça bar, walls lined with dusty old bottles and decades of history. Once we're up into the North Zone we'll visit a trio of foodie bars within walking distance of each other, each famous for a different dish. Our final venue is a traditional beer and caipirinha joint back in the heart of Lapa.
