Stylish bar and restaurant in Rio de Janeiro that dazzles the senses with a striking decor and a menu of caipirinhas that must be seen to be believed.

A contemporary oasis for lovers of creative fare and fresh-shaken cocktails, Iraja Gastro has burst on to the scene in Rio de Janeiro, and created a splash along the way with their combination of drinks and dishes. Located in a stately white residence with a spindly iron gate and bright yellow bench positioned out front, Iraja Gastro embraces all with a flair for the unique right from th moment they spot the venue. Once inside, Iraja Gastro is strictly modern, with sleek wooden floors, muted walls splashed with accents of green palms and colorful prints. The highlight has to be the hanging green garden which adds a touch of lush life to the room and balances out the modern touches brilliantly. When it comes time to enjoy a cocktail, Iraja Gastro‘s line of custom house cocktails is fun to say the least. A bubbly tipple featuring sparkling wine and strawberry caviar, along with a Passion Mojito, which is made with homemade soda, kiwi, mint, passionfruit, and premium rum, are just the tasty tip of the iceberg. A full range of caipirinhas flavored with your choice of fun ingredients like tangerine, basil, green apple, mango, mint, rosemary, or ginger (just to name a few) is also on offer in addition to ‘wine jugs’, of which the Tropical Rosé – bubbly rosé wine, rhubarb, raspberries, raspberry liqueur, and cranberry is a sparkling standout. This is to say nothing of the fine food, which has garnered a reputation as some of the most delicious and beautifully presented in all of Rio.
