Ipanema Food & Art Society


Get involved with a little slice of South America. Even though it’s half way across the world, the authenticity more than makes up for the distance.

Most of the staff are Brazilian and the tables are packed out with hotties who speak in broken English. Get into the swing of things on a Sunday when afternoon beers descend into chaos.
Hang outside or in the bar as the dining room can get a little stuffy in the warmer months. We can’t resist a long, cool, Ipanema beer and Acai Caipirinha with that famed Brazilian berry, sugar, acai vodka and cachaca, boom.

A bunch of Brazilian street artists have come in and given the place even more colour by sweeping murals across the walls. Live music sets and DJs will make you feel like you’re at Carnival, let loose and samba baby.
