Vinicius Bar - Bossa Nova's last outpost in it's hometown?Added by admin - 24/03/11 10:58AM - 0 Comments - -
When you are in Rio of today you must look hard for the past era. But you will find them if you want to. Vinicius Bar is one of those diamonds still alive.
When worshiping Bossa Nova and goes to Rio de Janeiro of today you can easily loose the faith. The Rio of today is another world. The commercialisation of the modern world is as alive in Rio as it is anywhere else. The subtle elegance of decadent dreamers and romantics seem far away. The chaos of poverty and favelas is in the middle of the vast metropolis. Gunshots and bombs a far too big picture of everyday life. The Rio of the sixties is long gone. You yearn for Bottles bar....
When you are in Rio of today you must look hard for the past era. But you will find them if you want to. Vinicius Bar is one of those diamonds still alive. Everyone knows about Garota deIpanema restaurant in the alleys beside Ipanema Beach. But it's neighbour across the street is not as known. But it's a haven for us escapists.
Live Bossa Nova almost every single night all year long. Behind the artists they still hang around. Jobim and Vinicius. If you can see ghosts you will probably see them hanging around drinking scotch on the rocks. Brazilian Jazz last outpost in it's heart. Vinicius Bar. When in Rio it's a must.
