You’ll find Stuzzi located at the end of the infamous Dias Ferreira in Leblon. This place is pretty tiny, the bar takes up most of the room and a few tables and chairs are scattered out back. Chic décor, decent lighting and a hot crowd, there’s nothing to dislike here.
Come the weekend this place gets seriously busy, you’ll need to use your elbows to get to the bar, but don’t let this put you off, embrace the challenge instead. If it all gets a bit much head out past the DJ to the small terrace area and mingle, there are plenty of hotties out here, you’ll definitely make friends.
The cocktails are great, we drank Esotici (Absolute acai, strawberry, mint, tangerine and cinnamon) crafted lovingly by head barman Vitor Barros, and then moved onto the Aphrodisiac with sparkling wine, Tabasco, raspberry syrup and yxaiio (the Austrian drink full of pheromones), shabba.
