Garota de Ipanema

Bar in Ipanema & Leblon

During its first incarnation, this small, open-sided bar was called the Bar Veloso. Its name and anonymity disappeared once two scruffy young regulars – Tom Jobim and Vinícius de Moraes – penned the famous song, 'The Girl from Ipanema'. It changed history, and the name of the street, too.

Today you'll find a mix of tourists and cariocas here, as well as sizzling platters of grilled steak.
