Rua Armando Almeida Lima, 8 | Vidigal
Bar da Laje has become one of the trendiest spots in Rio since opening in May 2014. High up in a favela at the Vidigal Mountain, with those breathtaking views of the coastline and the city, it is a place to have fun and watch the sun go down. You can call ahead and book a pickup close to your hotel to save the trouble of convincing a taxi driver to go up the hill. Once up there, you can enjoy the drinks, the live music and just feel like the happiest person in the world.
