Large groups are commonplace in the Trongate’s little slice of South America: Boteco do Brasil. This loud and convivial bar has built up a steadfast fan base of Glaswegians keen to keep partying after the pubs close, but not quite in the mood to hit the club. This is a place where food very much plays second fiddle to the fruity cocktails and party atmosphere. There are a few nods to the bar’s Brazilian heritage across the menu’s pages with options such as pão de queijo – a starter of breaded cheese balls originally from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais – and brigadeiro, Brazil’s most popular dessert consisting of chocolate truffles made with a blend of condensed milk and dark chocolate, topped with coconut flakes. Otherwise the food on offer is pretty standard pub grub – their burgers are particularly popular. Open until 3am seven nights a week, you get the sense that Boteco do Brasil is not interested in courting a foodie crowd, this is place to drink cocktails, dance and have fun into the early hours.
