The best Thursday and Sunday night in Rio. People on the street, drinking the best "chopp" like a frozen and creamy beer, good looking people, happiness as Rio can be. Amazing food for meat eaters - ask for "picanha" and "farofa". Opened all the other days. If you come to Rio and don't try Braseiro once, you didn't come to Rio.

I arrived to find outdoor tables crammed with boisterously chatting, flirting, drinking, Cariocas, (the term for those lucky enough to live in Rio de Janeiro.) My friend Daniel was meeting some of his effortlessly cool friends for a mid-week drink at Braseiro de Gavea in Baixo Gavea. The Portuguese flying across the table, the sexy dark men, I was a pig in shi* with a Brahma beer. It's easy to lose track of time and drink the evening away here. According to my source, a fantastic and funny Brazilian filmmaker , Mondays and Thursdays are for single people. Wednesdays and Sundays are for a pushing 30 crowd, who've still got it. Wink. The weekends aren't very packed. If you want to see how Brazilians spend a weeknight, this place is for you.
