No bar table with friends, cold beer and aperitif-time snacks – some São Paulo homes go beyond traditional programming to de-stress people leaving work and looking for an open place after government authorization for bars and restaurants to return operating in the capital of São Paulo.
It is possible to launch axes between one sip and another, for example. Or choose a new decoration for the room while waiting for the drink to be ready.
At Hatchet House, in Vila Olímpia, ax throwing is the flagship product. A little known sport in Brazil, it has a specialized league – WATL, or World League of Throwing Axes – responsible for organizing championships between countries such as Canada, China and the United States. It is with the idea of popularizing the practice here that the house was opened last year in São Paulo.
The pitches are separated from the hall by bars, with monitors at their disposal, and have wooden targets at one end. The first hour costs R $ 40 and customers get progressive discounts based on the number of friends they take.
To contribute to the ambiance, the decor has a Nordic and rustic theme, with subdued colors, in addition to classic rock elements. Of course, inspiration is also on the menu. The variety of dishes is wide, with options for burgers, steaks and portion sizes. One of the good options is flatbread – a kind of thin-crust, artisanal mini-pizza – like Sif (R $ 24), marguerita flavor, and Surtur (R $ 27.50), with a mix of shimeji. , shiitake and button mushrooms. Minas cheese.
Among the drinks, the big highlight is beer, with many Brazilian and foreign labels. But it is possible to order wines, sparkling wine, mead, classic drinks and non-alcoholic options. Depending on the day, you can find great deals for two for one for Guinness (Thursday, R $ 31 a pint) and gin and tonic (Saturday, R $ 23).
Meanwhile, the Vintage Brechó Bar Boutique operates in a curious way. If anyone sees something of interest among the items on display, it is worth asking one of the attendants for the value. The bar works with a thrift store and offers clothes, accessories and decorative items.
As in any establishment of this type, the idea is mine. The customer will find items that refer to childhood and past decades, such as mirrors, furniture, photos, electronics, vases, jackets, pants, dresses and shoes …
The relaxed, informal space pairs well with craft beer, but it’s worth betting on the drinks to give it a more chic look. Order the classic negroni (R $ 38) or the Moscow mule (R $ 35, with artisanal Brazilian vodka).
To eat, sandwiches are the main attraction of the menu. The two recipes made on bossa bread are eye-catching: one takes grated prime rib marinated in smoked stout beer, slices of fried bacon and tartar sauce (R $ 28) and the other is delivered with a pallet of grated pork, marinated in Creole seasoning, coleslaw with the house’s barbecue sauce (R $ 24).
Those who like a good, simple burger can go without fear to the Super Burguer (R $ 27), with 140g of beef, cheese, bacon, egg, cucumber pickles and homemade mayonnaise.
The houses are part of the Achados Elo project, which is supported by the card company and organizes establishments with options unique to São Paulo. The selection is made by the Folha Folha team and follows the same criteria and analyzes used each week by the supplement.
