Boteco, an authentic Brazilian bar in the heart of Paris

At Boteco, tapas, drinks and even the atmosphere give out an air of Copacabana. South America has never felt this close!

Smooth Bossa Nova notes already set the tone: at Boteco ("bar" in Portuguese), the ambiance is warm and caipirinhas reign supreme. On the stone walls and overlooking the bench seats showcasing tropical patterns, the Mona Lisa lovingly hugs Pelé, the South-American football idol in an analogy of the place's spirit. Two friends run it, one French and the other Brazilian, wanting to recreate the ambiance of a real boteco. The challenge has been met, with decoration evoking the Amazon rainforest and a refined menu harking back to Ipanema. You will be able to share typical tapas like picanha beef, black beans and sesame hummus, tapioca pudding dadinho (tapioca with grilled cheese, serrano ham and bittersweet sauce), as well as the signature ceviche. Pair this South-American culinary adventure with a Tonka bean beer, brewed on the spot, or one of the many variations on the caipirinha, like the caipi-maté (rum, ice maté, lemon and thyme syrup), all in moderation. You can even learn how to make yours during cocktail lessons, every first Saturday of the month. Cheers! Or as they say in Brazil, Tim-Tim!
