Meeting Flavio At Favela Chique in Bairro Alto

After the boat cruise we met a guy called Flavio randomly and he asked if we wanted to “go for a beer,” We told him we’d meet him in the same spot in an hour as Ruth was trying to get her phone unlocked. We met him and ended up in a bar in Bairro Alto called Favela Chique. It was our first time in Bairro Alto and we loved it! Bairro Alto is a picturesque working class quarter dating from the 16th century that has traditionally been the city’s bohemian haunt of artists and writers.
