Bar dos Descasados information
Inside Hotel Santa Teresa, this stylish bar with outdoor seating has lovely views over the city (looking north). You can enjoy decadent cocktails (including a caipirinha made with tangerines grown on the property) and savory snacks such as salmon tartare while pondering the A-list crowd. The bar is fairly empty during the week but becomes a livelier destination, mostly for couples, on weekends.
The bar has an intriguing history: the building was once a hotel for the recently divorced, and before that the bar functioned as the slave quarters of a working coffee plantation.
