You sit outside on the sidewalk, and serve your own drinks out of the fridges. Bio Bip just celebrated 50 years of activity. It is just a half block off the main drag on Copacabana.

I went all the way to Rio to explore bossa nova. If you are a bossa nova lover, visit there on Wednesday night.

Went to Rio in April 2016 with my entire family. Tried to find Bip Bip one night because my dad and son both play guitar but there was nothing where Bip Bip was meant to be, we were using the GPS on our phones too.

chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
