Armazém São Thiago
26 Rua Áurea
The best bars for telling secretsThere are plenty of places to dance the night away in Rio. But for a more intimate experience, follow the locals to a neighborhood boteco. These open-air bars buzz with the hum of conversations and occasional cheers related to a televised soccer game. Leblon's Bar Jobi, with its cozy checkered tablecloths and paneled walls, is a lovely spot to review your vacation photos and reminisce on the trip. At Armazém São Thiago, a former grocery store restored to its early 20th-century glory, you can sip local wines and watch as night takes over the bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
