Bar do Armando
This large building was once an old grocery store, but today it has been transformed into a bar. All sorts of people can be seen at Bar do Armando, like reporters, musicians, politicians, writers, tourists and bohemians. The main attraction here is the ice-cold beer, perfect for drinking alongside the bar's famous "x-porco" sandwich, seasoned with lime. The owner is in charge of almost everything here, and can often be seen talking to guests at his bar.
Cachazaria do Dede
This venue has the best happy hour in the city, serving mouthwatering hors d'oeuvres like its famous stone-fried "charque" (South American jerky) with manioc rolls and "coalho" (a lightly salted soft cheese, traditional in northern Brazil). The smoked pork ribs is a great dish to pair with the bar's 180 brands of "cachaca" (pronounced "cah-CHAH-sah", a traditional Brazilian liquor) served by the glass, although there are 600 other brands sold by the bottle. Each bottle of cachaca is served along with information about its origin, the type of wood used to age it and its alcohol proof. If you're not into trying cachaca, you can order a "chope" (draft beer) or one of the 60 kinds of bottled beer available.
The "chope" (draft beer) at this bar has been chosen as the best in the city for the third year in a row. As soon as the eight-gallon barrels arrive, they're immediately taken to walk-ins set at 40 degrees before being hooked up to the taps. Enjoy a delicious and refreshing beer at Manaus' famous Picollino bar.
