Academia da Cachaça - Nightlife in Rio de Janeiro - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

Cachaça is the national beverage, though brazillians are nice beer drinkers to - 8th in the world rank as it concerns. And cachaça is made all over a large number of places in Brazil, which means a lot of producers and varieties. Academia da Cachaça is the place to find hundreds of the best ones and to apreciate its signature drink: THE caipirinha.

Why you should visit it

Besides decor - the tacky brazillian flag on the ceiling is kinda cute - Academia is the place for a well balanced feijoada washed with caipirinhas made of several local fruits like pitanga, siriguela, limão-galego and the most traditional one, the lemmon version.

Special tip

Ask for the cocada geladinha - it's a mixture of coconut and cachaça straight from heaven. The "bolinha de carne" is a keeper.
