Baqretto Londra Bar  

Rock and Retro
The Fasano name may be synonymous with generations of culinary excellence and renowned for a global chain of Michelin starred venues, but Rogério Fasano´s big loves are Rock Music and London. Anyone in doubt needs look no further than his brain-child, the Baqretto Londra Bar.

Accessed via a 30 foot long ravine of glowing light, violet décor, and wispy white curtains, it’s clear from the beginning that guests are entering something sacred. But that’s not to say that the atmosphere inside is anything but casual.

Originally purchased to become Rio’s addition to the famous Faena Hotel and Resorts, the interior décor was largely the work of legendary designer Philippe Starck.

The Fasano family purchased the establishment, bringing in their own Italian favorites: oversized sofas and chairs, leather upholstery, earthy interiors and low profile tables.

The retro lounge is decorated with a giant British flag, recolored in Italian red, green and white. The walls hang heavy with forgotten and famed stars from eras past and LP records. And the musical selection is decidedly and unabashedly rock.

This homage to both London and rock music features intimate, personal performances by current superstars, in a close-enough-to-touch atmosphere that creates a relaxed feel and encourages the musicians to interact with the unintimidating crowds more like a personal group of friends than audience.

Together with its distinctly Fasano feel, elegant décor, award winning cocktails and meals, and private performances, it’s no wonder that Baqretto Londra has risen into the popular haunts of the beautiful Brazilian people and become a prime destination for the international jet set.
