A quick, but pleasant stay in Brasília
Depending on what you need to get done in the Federal Capital, you can check into your hotel during the day or at night, after your business meetings, for example. Regardless of this, we’re going to look at basic plans for those spending 24 hours in the city.
Important: consider doing intersting things, sure, at cool place, of course, as long as they are close to where you’re doing business or your hotel. Time flies, and no one wants to spend their valuable time stuck in traffic. Take it from us!
There is no lack of options when it comes to good food and entertainment around the hotel Royal Tulip Brasília Alvorada.
7 AM – Breakfast
Having your morning meal at the hotel is always a good idea. It optimizes your time and is usually included in your stay. The Herbs Restaurant, located in the RT Brasília Alvorada offers three meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) of the highest standard. Simply delicious!
12 PM – Meeting + lunch
For those who enjoy different types of meat, the traditional Bar do Alemão has a large menu offering fillet steaks, cod fish and chicken dishes, as well as their famous roast pork with crackling.
The sophisticated The Old Barr, at the Royal Tulip Brasília Alvorada, is decked out in the style of an English pub with a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Just perfect for informal business meetings. 🙂
5 PM – Enjoying Paranoá and other sights
If you manage to get out of any meetings before nightfall, be sure to enjoy the sunset from Paranoá Lake. It’s a spectacular sight that covers almost the entire extension of Royal Tulip Brasília Alvorada and Golden Tulip Brasília Alvorada.
Also just a stone’s throw from the hotel is the Nossa Senhora Aparecida Metropolitan Cathedral, designed by Oscar Niemeyer. The local architecture is a spectacle apart, and on the inside is a life-size replica of the Pietà, by Michelangelo. Ah, along the way you can also see Palácio da Alvorada, Palácio do Planalto and several other monument attractions. It’s really beautiful!
7 PM – Delightful drink
The entertainment and leisure complex at Pontão do Lago Sul is perfect for a happy hour, as you can find fine fare and an active cultural and sports program. BierFass Lago offers live music and exclusive recipes, like their cod carpaccio. Those after a beach atmosphere should head over to Manzuá. Specialized in seafood and Baiano-style cuisine, the shrimp bobó and acarajé are a must. 😀
If you’d prefer more of a bar atmosphere, try Bar Brasília. It is the meeting point of Brasília’s bohemian following. Decorated in the style of the famous bars of Rio de Janeiro from the past, they serve the wildly popular DF draft beer, as well as excellent snacks and other labels of cold beer.
Would you prefer to enjoy the happy hour and then head to your room to relax? Visit Bar do Capitão. It offers a delicious variety of snacks and sandwiches.
10 PM – Nightlife
For night owls, a good party never goes amiss, right? And Brasília has a party for every taste. For those not ready to leave before a night of getting down, Outro Calaf offers a varied agenda, with something happening almost every day to the sound of Brazilian music. Salsa and Merengue in the Federal District? Some of the very best! Head to Caribeño and dance the night away. It’s the meeting point for Brazilians and foreigners, where everybody hits the dance floor to the Latin rhythms. The food is incredible, too. Arriba! For folks that prefer pop rock, the pub UK Music Hall always offers a live attraction. This is a great tip from someone visiting the city from Thursday to Saturday. 😉
After this itinerary, we’re sure that your 24 hours in Brasília will be loads more fun.
No more excuse! Time to make the best of your trip. Until the next destination!
