With more than 10 years of history and a hiatus of almost 5 years, the DUO party is back in Rio. From April 7th, the party that marked an entire generation has a new address, Alba, in Botafogo. During every Sunday in April, the event will welcome the public from 5pm with current and era-defining hits. Housed in a charming mansion built between 1903 and 1905, Alba brings a multicultural concept to Rio de Janeiro. Known for its diverse gastronomic scene and lively nightlife, Botafogo was the neighborhood chosen to welcome the new development, which promises to offer an immersive experience combining gastronomy, culture and art in the same environment. A plural place, like the region.

Rich in history and charm, the space, measuring approximately 250m², has a restaurant in the garden and an internal area reserved for the bar, with projections and intimate presentations. In addition, there will be other artistic events such as readings, monologues, sketches and book launches.

To welcome the public, mixologist Tai Barbin created signature drinks inspired by historical and cultural personalities from Italy. The selection has options ranging from refreshing to more intense flavors, to please everyone. The Boat Namer, gin, honey, lemon and salted cucumber juice (R$35); Dante’s Hell, Silver tequila, sparkling rosé and lemon (R$ 42); Italian Odalisca, Beefeater Pink Gin, Aperol, sparkling wine, watermelon shrub, dill and Tahiti lemon (R$ 39); and O Observador de Estrelas, Brandy, red wine, passion fruit, ginger and lemon (R$ 35), are part of the menu.

Alba is the result of a partnership between Vibra Marketing, an entertainment group that operates in the areas of events and festivals and which entered the gastronomic sector with Bosque Bar, the Italian Piero Zolin, who is also a partner at Coltivi, the businessman and PR Leo Marçal, the award-winning Tai Barbin.

Designed for the contemporary and hip public, the project was born about two years ago, when everyone decided to combine their skills and passions to create something new and special for locals and tourists. “Our goal is to provide this diversity of experiences in all aspects of the house, be it musical, artistic and gastronomic with excellent dishes and high quality services, and, of course, an exceptional selection of drinks to complement”, explains Piero.

“We bring all these elements together in one place. The concept behind Alba is to be a house that not only houses the restaurant, but also to be a connection platform, where people meet to express themselves or express themselves artistically”, highlights Juliana Schultz. “It can involve acoustic music, dance, poetry, reading books and also other forms of art, such as painting and theater”, concludes Leo.

A new meeting point for locals and tourists, Alba is open to celebrate diversity through all the senses
