Bar and botequins Buzios Brazil

Features of a Botequim

The major difference is the botequim is plane and simple and sells only cigarettes, alcohol and snacks like candy and pork rinds. They usually have a bar and may or may not have stools. As these establishments are so small they usually spread out their tables on the sidewalk in front of the bar.


The primary form of entertainment in a botequim is drinking and smoking. However, there is usually some other form of fun taking place. Music may be playing or a sporting event may be shown on television. Rarely is there any live music as there is no room for a band or a dance floor.

Bar do David

Bar do David is a bar and restaurant and is best know for its Brazilian fair. One of the favorite dishes is Seafood In Stone, which combines squid, shrimp, fish and octopus. Their pizza is another favorite. Ask the waiter about the drink specials, especially any homemade liquor that might be available.
