Palaphita Kitch

Top choice Lounge

in Gávea, Jardim Botânico & Lagoa

A great spot for a sundowner, Palaphita Kitch is an open-air, thatched-roof wonderland with rustic bamboo furniture, flickering tiki torches and a peaceful setting on the edge of Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. It's a popular spot with couples, who come for the view and the creative (but pricey) cocktails: the caipirinhas, made from unusual fruits from the Northeast and Amazonia, are a hit.
