Why locals recommend it
It’s a colorful oasis at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge that feels like a typical boteco, a Brazilian neighborhood bar, and has room for bands and dancing. Their range of infused cachaças make for delicious twists on the traditional caipirinha, and Saturday afternoons they serve the best feijoada, a bean-and-meat stew that is Brazil’s national dish. Aim for Thursday for bossa nova, Friday for samba rock with Turma do Samba, Saturday for samba and pagode, and Sunday for forró.
Tips from locals
During the day and early evening it is a Brazilian restaurant. at around 11pm or midnight they remove the tables and chair and the place turns into a carnival! Very festive mixed crowd.
This is a great place for Bossanova on Thursday evenings or samba on Sundays at around 5pm.

“In the summer there is no better outdoor bar to go to – a huge space in the back with picnic tables, taco truck, great Bloody Marys and a full bar. At night the music inside turns up and everyone starts dancing.”
