Fodor's Review

By far the liveliest of Santa Teresa's many drinking dens and the hub of much social activity, this enduringly popular boteco anchors one end of the neighborhood's main drinking and dining strip. The whitewashed walls are hung with posters and artworks honoring the Tropicalia arts movement of the 1970s, and Bar do Mineiro continues to attract the kinds of artists and intellectuals that lived in Santa Teresa at that time. Some excellent snacks are served here—the

pasteis de feijao (fried pastries filled with black beans) being a firm favorite with locals—as well as hearty plates of meat-based comida mineira (cuisine from Minas Gerais State). A street-party atmosphere prevails on Sunday afternoons, when the bar is standing room only and revelers spill out onto the road outside.
