Garota de Ipanema is a restaurant which gained popularity in Rio de Janeiro as it is the name of a song which marked the beginning of Bossa Nova. The bar opened in 1945 in Ipanema and it was named Bar Botineiro. Shortly after it was opened it became one of the most bohemian locals in the area as it is where Vinicius de Moraes and Antonio Carlos Jobim composed their song La Garota de Ipamema which they dedicated to a girl who used to pass by the bar everyday.

Following the success of the song, Bar Botineiro changed its name to La Garota de Ipanema and it soon became a major tourist attraction in the city. Today, this restaurant serves lots of different dishes from all over Brazil, as well as snacks such as sandwiches, pastas and pizzas.
