OnlyRoses City Spotlight Rio de Janiero

We’ve got lots of friends living in beautiful cities around the world, and we’re always looking for good recommendations on where to stay, shop and eat. These tips were put together by Joanna (a close childhood friend of OnlyRoses co-founder Sabine) for our latest city spotlight: Rio, where we hope to open a store one day.

WHERE TO STAY -

Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro
Nestled in the heart of Ipanema, this hotel has it all (and more): enviable location, attentive service without being too much, and understated style (it’s oozing with cool).

Copacabana Palace
As Barry Manilow crooned, “music and passion were always the fashion.” They still are. And so is ‘The Copa’ – which has earned its legendary reputation as the place to be (and party) in Rio.

Intro

WHERE TO EAT -

Antiquarius
Visit Antiquarius for the best of traditional Portugese food, and huge plates (perfect for sharing). Tip: Wear your ‘Sunday best’ (this is a place to see and be seen).
Rua Aristides Espinola 19

Satyricon
The top seafood restaurant in Rio (by far, we’re told). Order the Trio Mare to start. Then indulge in any of the fresh and meticulously prepared Mediterranean-Italian dishes on the menu.
Rua Barão da Torre 192

Aprazível
Nestled in the hills of Santa Teresa, Aprazível offers a fabulous view of Rio, yummy dishes and drinks, and a charming and romantic atmosphere.
Rua Aprazível 62

Esplanada Grill
The very best steakhouse in Rio, serving up the most loved cuts of beef, and a feijoada to die for every Saturday.
Rua Barão Da Torre 600

Bar do Bira - Guaratiba
How would you like to escape to a magical place where time seems to stop and the food is indescribable? Um yes. Order the Pasteis de Siri e de Camarão and pretty much anything else (you can’t go wrong). The catch? It takes 40-60 minutes to get there from Rio.
Estrada da Vendinha 68a
