Vinicius Piano Bar - Bossa Nova at the best

If you like Rio de Janeiro and Bossa Nova then you must, must visit Vinicius Piano Bar. It is located in the Ipanema quarter and just in front of the bar where Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes wrote the famous Bossa Nova song “Ipanema Girl”…watching the walking poem in her way to the sea…

Vinicius Piano Bar is also a restaurant, but it is mostly known for the live shows – and I was lucky enough to listen to Maria Creuza, one of the “oldies” still performing. The space is not too big, but it feels good to mingle with Bossa Nova fans from all over the world that always get it crowded.

For those not familiar with Bossa Nova – in the lack of a better definition, it is a kind of mix between Jazz and Samba…style that I highly, highly appreciate… [more ]

Bossa Nova in Ipanema

Girl from Ipanema is probably the most famous bossa nova song of all time, so where better to hear live bossa sounds than this upmarket beach neighbourhood. At Vinicius, you can hear live bossa nova most nights, although occasionally smab or MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) will be on the musical menu. There's a good selection of bar snacks and typical Brazilian meals here too (although the choice for vegetarians is pretty limited) and this is a nice place to have an early evening meal and drinks, then soak up the atmosphere and music. It's a little touristy, and more a place to come and listen to music than to party the night away, but if you're a fan of bossa nova then this is one of the few places in the city that you can here the music performed live.
