Bar Lagoa

Boteco in Gávea, Jardim Botânico & Lagoa

With a view of Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas across a busy road, Bar Lagoa is one of the neighborhood's classic haunts. Founded in 1935, this open-air spot hasn't changed all that much since then: the bar still has surly waiters serving excellent beer to ever-crowded tables and, in spite of its years, a youthful air pervades.
