Something of a novelty for cariocas, Lord Jim is one of several English-style pubs scattered about the Zona Sul. Darts, English-speaking waiters and a few expat beers – Guinness, Harps, Bass etc – are on hand to complete the ambience. The R$40 all-the-beer-and-caipirinhas-you-can-drink nights (currently Wednesdays from 6pm to 10pm) get messy.

Unlike many bars, there's always a cover charge, though drink specials lessen the hurt.
