Get ready to dive headfirst into the pulsating nightlife of Copacabana! Firstly, our Classic Copacabana Bar, Club and Pub Crawl is your ultimate ticket to an unforgettable evening of revelry. With our knowledgeable guides leading the way, you’ll explore the best bars and clubs. You’ll also immerse yourself in the energetic atmosphere of this iconic neighborhood. In fact, Copacabana is renowned for its vibrant nightlife scene, and our pub crawl ensures you don’t miss out on the action.

All bar, club and pub crawls should start from Arpoador. In Copa´s case, you´ll be heading towards Leme. This selection of bars and botequins is arranged geographically, but not in any sort of ranking. So reverse, skip, or repeat bars and you´ll be fine as long as you have a drink in your hand.

Adega do Cesare

Brazilians consider the lager served here “awe-fucking-some”. The Caldeirada Aperitivo is the best option to get your stomach started: mid-sized, award-winning seafood stew. Dont sit inside with the loser, grab a barril and stand outside, showing off to all the cars that you are drinking a beer while they are stuck in traffic.


Get some tapas and sangria in you, because it’s always good to mix.

Bunda de Fora/Bar do Aboim

The one thing they do phenomenally: Pastel de carne, (beef fried turn-overs), for only R$6 a pop! Only after 3pm.

Bip Bip

Help yourself to a beer from the fridge, no food. Opens after 8pm.

Boteco da garrafa

Look for beer brands like Teresopolis, Eisenbahn, or other Brazilian micro-brews.


Order pastel de camarao, an overly packed shrimp fried pasty, and their empada de Siri, a filling crab cake! Great Brahma beer too!

Pavão Azul

Their well-known pataniscas de bacalhau (cod fritters) is worth the trip. Gets very packed, and very friendly.

Manuel e Joaquim

Bolinho de bacalhau (cod cake) and a chopp.

Adega Perola

An extremely traditional botequim awaits you, brimming with rare Portuguese bar foods and tapas. You’ll also quickly notice their old-school charm, where nothing is sugar-coated. They serve delights such as squid and fish ceviche, anti-pasti, and other intriguing preserves. Overall, it’s a must-visit establishment! However, do keep in mind that it closes early, at 11pm!

Real Chopp

A great place to hang out, because of the varied, affordable dishes and busy location. Great chopp (draft lager).


Check out their counter, as they have a great selection of tapas type food to choose from. Otherwise, their bolinho de aipim (cassava cake) is the best bet. Great Cerveja Escura from Brahma, the stout version.

Galeto Sat’s

Check out their spring-chicken dishes (galeto), as well as their Portuguese fries (batata-frita portuguesa). Great chopp!


The mecca of sandwich bars in Rio! The Sanduíche de file com queijo e abacaxi, (cheese-pineapple-steak sandwich) their flagship offering is worth the sheik-shocking R$28. Also consider the lombinho de porco (pork chop), and peito de peru (turkey breast) which are also great orders. Marvel at how fast they put the sandwich together! It´s all part of the experience.

Caipirinha Crawl

Of course, this pub crawl could be replaced with caipirinhas. However, there’s a catch—only one per pub, and if you make it past Belmonte, you might need to call a coroner. Additionally, when it comes to cachaças to ask for, consider options like Magnifica, Salinas, Ferreira, Meia Lua, Boazinha, Vendaval, and Germana.

Fruits to ask for are:

Lime – Limão (regular)
Lemon – Lima
Cashew fruit – Caju
Pineapple – Abacaxi
Strawberry – Morango
Passion Fruit – Maracujá
Lychee – Lichia
