For a flavour of Rio right here in São Paulo, Pirajá, a bar modelled on a classic carioca ‘botequim’, is a top spot for a lazy lunch – possibly to the syncopated sounds of a samba band, who strike up on the occasional Saturday afternoon. The Rio de Janeiro Carnival bloco Cordão do Boitatá will be kicking Carnival off early at Pirajá with the annual ‘grito de carnaval’ (carnival shout), playing traditional Carnival marchinhas. Join the revellers inside, outside or anywhere you can find a spot.
