Mangue Seco Cachaçaria

Bahian in Santa Teresa & Lapa

Part of the Rio Scenarium nightspot empire, Mangue Seco serves a mix of seafood and Bahian fare, with hearty moquecas and caldeirada de frutos do mar (both seafood stews). Upstairs is a bar with more than 100 types of cachaça (sugarcane alcohol), and there's live music (often samba) on Friday night.
