Happy Hour in Rio de JaneiroOn April 1, I was invited to attend the launch cocktail party for the Boteco Chic Festival, an event that will take place every Wednesday. This time the stage for the party was the Royal Tulip Rio de Janeiro, located on the São Conrado waterfront, but each week it will take place in a different hotel in the BHG chain, I really enjoyed it and that's no lie...lol.
I was delighted with this high standard hotel, which I hadn't been to before. I was greeted by the messenger who promptly showed me to the lounge, which faces the sea, with a special touch of wonderful lighting that makes the atmosphere very pleasant.
As well as always taking place in a wonderful location in Rio de Janeiro, the event combines gastronomy with music, art and fashion in the same place, and always has a special guest, such as the photographer Beto Gatti, who exhibited some of his works at the launch, which adorned the walls with a very interesting look at our Marvelous City.
The event will take place every Wednesday from 6pm, with lots of good music from Radio Ibiza. During the event, a set menu will be served, which I really enjoyed. A mix of boteco food with something more gourmet, such as white bean soup with cabbage crisp and torresminho, prawns with plantains and coconut and chestnut farofa, handmade sausage on the griddle with garlic aioli confit and bread basket, mix of pastries among others with great presentation and a taste of wanting more, but in each edition two more dishes will be introduced to diversify the delights more and more!
Is your mouth watering? What's more, the drinks put on a show in terms of taste. You can try the cashew caipirinha with a lemon duo or the tangerine caipirinha with ginger and basil, different mixtures, but which are sure to win over your taste buds, or enjoy the cachaça, which already shows its inspiration in the name, by the way, have you had rain today? I thought the name was great. Chuva is a flavored cachaça in a variety of flavors, and is a great option even to give as a gift to friends.
A conscious event is something else, isn't it?
Do you like it? Don't miss out on a nice Happy Hour in Rio de Janeiro. The next one will take place today, April 8, at the Marina Palace, located in Leblon, with the presentation of the works of photographers Beto Gatti and Bruno Brin, in the exhibition "Mulheres que Sonhamos" ("Women We Dream Of"), for sure the event will be a show again, along with its exquisite snacks, tasty drinks, quality cachaça and good music to rock the night, it's very chic!
