Rio Scenarium, Lapa

Patricia Ribeiro

Great Rio de Janeiro restaurants are scattered all over, with fine choices along the beach - Barra da Tijuca and Guaratiba, Ipanema, Copacabana, Leblon - and some time-tested places in the historic downtown area.

When it comes to bars, Rio keeps a fine balance between tradition and novelty. Away from the beach, Lapa, with its mix of upbeat locals, international travelers and seedy characters, is one of the hottest spots in town. So is neighboring Santa Teresa. Tijuca, on the North Side, is a great find for the traveler who wants to mix with the locals on a quest for great food and some of the most traditional bars in town.
