Bar do Gomez website

Founded in 1919, the inimitable Bar do Gomez began life as a Spanish migrant's grocery store (hence its other name Armazem São Thiago) and retains its idiosyncratic charms of yore to this day, with jars of ancient-looking olives and tinned foods still lining the shelves above the bar. Gomez has run the bar for years, making it a dependable local staple attracting toothless characters, dogs chasing cars at the crossroads and a gaggle of locals in various stages of inebriation. Deep-fried cod balls (bolinhos) and shrimp pies (pasteis) come highly recommended, washed down with a great chopp and over sixty types of cachaça. Emitting an authentic rough and ready charm, this is the essence of Santa Teresa experience.
