Bars at the Main Square
Praça Matriz is perhaps the busiest place in the historical center of Paraty. There we have several options for dining, having a drink or just relaxing at the square drinking some beer.
Some of the most popular bars are those that play live music. At Praça da Matriz, we have the Sarau Restaurante, which it has daily shows by local artists and it plays good Brazilian music. The food is excellent and also the drinks!
Be sure to try the typical drink of Paraty: Jorge Amado, prepared with Gabriela cachaça (clove and cinnamon flavor), lemon and passion fruit.
Another nice restaurant-bar is Casa Coupé.They have live music on the weekends and it’s one of the most traditional restaurants in the historical center. Their menu is really good and a lot of options.

Samba da Benção
It has already become a tradition thing to do on Mondays and it’s on the city’s informal calendar. Samba da Benção is organized by local artists who play samba, partido alto and Brazilian music. It takes place every Monday, except when it rains, at Praça Matriz.
Some locals say that the places was chosen to honor the African ancestors who disembark in Paraty during the colonial times, when the Praça da Matriz was used as a slave cemetery.
It’s a beautiful and very meaningful party!
