Having been in many Irish bars in Ireland, and across the world ( Perth Aus, Singapore, KL, Shekhou, Bogota, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Dubai) and having married an Irish wife, I feel reasonably qualified to comment here. This was without doubt the most soulless and sterile...More

An Irish Pub in Rio. International Beers, Rock and Roll Music (Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays) and Karaoke (Wednesdays) in the downtown area (Centro) of Rio de Janeiro called Lapa. Next to the famous Lapa Arches and Selaron Stairs.

With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
