Places I recommend:
Restô-contemporary cousine just a block from home
Itahy- about 4 blocs with a great "picanha", a brazilian meet served on a grill right at your table
Lapa Maki- All you can eat Japanese food on the next street.
Carretão- All you can eat meat place. Barbecue brazilian style
Barzim- straight club with Karaoke on fridays or thursday, not sure.
Galeria Café-Gay club
For directions, just search on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps, they are all in Ipanema
Go to Lapa at night for some samba clubs, but be careful, there has been a lot of pick pocketing lately
Go to Santa Tereza too at sunset for the bars on the hills.
Of course watch the sunset at Ipanema beach!!!
DON'T TAKE VALUABLES TO THE BEACH, THAT IS A RULE FOR EVERY SMART TRAVELER. NOT JUST IN BRAZIL, EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD PEOPLE STEAL YOUR STUFF IF UNATTENDED!
After 11pm, please respect other guests and don't be loud or watch TV.
The AIR CONDITIONER is NOT allowed to stay on all day, it is only during NIGHT time for a better sleeping experience. The host will turn it on and off, only on HOT nights, please do not touch. It will be turned on at 11pm and shut off at 6am, it keeps chill until 10am if doors mantain closed.
No smoking in room but there is a balcony for smoking, and the door has to be CLOSED, so that the smell doesn't come in and bother the other guests.
Ring the bell downstairs when you arrive, number 6
Always close the front door!
Never drink water from the tap in entire Brazil! Don't take expensive belongings to the beach, only walk with copy of passport or ID
and never leave cameras, phones and money unattended while swimming at the beach.
The neighbourhood is the safest in Brazil, but all over the world it's good to be cautious. Ask the wifi code, clean your feet after the beach in the shower at lobby. No strangers allowed in the loft anytime. Clean dishes right after usage. Moderate noise during the night, after all, it is a shared room. 100 reais fee if key is lost.
I am a very easy going guy, that enjoys to meet people and want you to have your best Rio experience! I live with Mateus, a Graphic Designer and model, very outgoing, friendly and wonderful person. I am a professional photographer and actor. Really into theatre, movies and any other cultural events. We love to meet different cultures and maybe make new friends, who knows... See you soon in Rio!
