in Ipanema & Leblon

A favorite since 1956, Jobi has served a lot of beer in its day, and its popularity hasn't waned. The unadorned botequim (bar with table service) still serves plenty; grab a seat by the sidewalk and let the night unfold. If hunger beckons, try the tasty appetizers; the carne seca (jerked beef) and the bolinhos de bacalhau (codfish croquettes) are tops.
