Academia da Cachaça

Bar in Ipanema & Leblon

Although cachaça has a sordid reputation in some parts, at this bar the fiery liquor is given the respect it (nearly) deserves. Along with dishes of traditional Brazilian cooking, this pleasant indoor-outdoor spot serves more than 100 varieties of cachaça; you can order it straight, with honey and lime, or disguised in a fruity caipirinha.
