““Cachaça” (sugarcane spirits) in its most varied forms. The city’s first cachaça bar, it’s been open since 1960 and offers impressive variations of the distilled drink made from sugarcane. Among the most ordered variations is a mixture of cachaça, clove and cinnamon known as Gabriela. It is a meeting point for the young people who frequent Lapa to drink the “saideira” (last drink) and chat until dawn.”
