The boys in Ipanema
This great local bar in Ipanema is just two blocks from the beach. A great place to grab a cocktail before or after a sandy interlude.

      nice place
      This is the only gay place left on what was the gay strip. It's also just about the only option open before 11pm. Service and food are very good, the prices are in line with other trendy places in ipanema (a bit high compared to rio overall but still not expensive by world standards). Popular with locals and tourists. This place is pretty much a must for any gay visitor to Rio.

      The bar is located in the Ria Farme de Amoedo, the gay street of Ipanema. a lot of fun. People usually start to arrive after sunset. Cariocas gays also attend the "To not AUI" before gay parties.

      The place to be if your gay in Rio
      Rio has a gay neighborhood, but everyplace is gay friendly or have gay nights. So it is hard to find a gay only bar. Well To Nem Ai is one of the few in Rio that is mostly gay. It has a large outdoor seating. Seemed to be the place to meet all the other tourist. <br><br> It is a must stop on a trip to Rio.

      The only bar...
      This was the only gay bar we could find on the gay street! During carnival the whole street was packed full of guys and girls all dressed up. Atmosphere was amazing, had the Risotto which was really nice, but pricy. Outside of carnival a lot more quite but still ok to start the night with a few drinks.

      Laid back place for a drink
      I went here a couple of times early-mid evening for a drink. It was a good place to have a beer, hang out, people-watch. I did hear those American-English speakers that a previous reviewer had mentioned -- it was just their conversation, not their language, that was annoying! It is an easy, comfortable option but personally, I don't have a problem with that -- I didn't see any better options on this street. Food is ridiculously overpriced so I'd stick to an appetizer if anything.

      This is NOT Rio...
      I alway walk by this place hearing the queens speaking ENGLISH and wonder what is so special about it. This is the same sort of place found anyplace in the USA. Why come all the way to Rio to stand around drinking WAY over priced drinks, (compared to other places in Rio) and sponsor a straight owned bar, (the owner is a straight guy from ITALY)! There are so many amazing real carioca places in this city where you can meet cool LOCAL gay people and this plkace just is NOT Rio! The locals even go across the street to Bar popeye to buy their beers and bring them back to To nem Ai, (they know better than to pay those high prices)! Get out and explore Rio and don't hide is the "safe" place where locals are looking to meet rich tourists. It's a classic gay tourist trap. yes, the food is good, but in a city this big, there is better and cheaper food made by LOCAL owners! To Nem Ai...I just don't get it. Lame and boring. The Hard Rock Cafe of gay Rio...

      The best place for evening drink and snack
      This a newest bar on the gay street in Ipanema. A lot of guys are coming here for their evening drink and snack before they go to the clubs. Waiters and the owner are super friendly and it is easy to get to know locals in this bar.
