O Plebeu

Bar in Botafogo, Humaitá & Urca
Tom Le Mesurier

In a lively stretch of Botafogo, O Plebeu is a welcoming, open-sided two-story bar with tables spilling onto the sidewalk and a 2nd-floor balcony. Neighborhood regulars pack this place, drawn by ice-cold bottled beer, codfish balls and an unpretentious crowd befitting the name ('The Commoner').
