Casa Independente

You’ll find a big tile-covered manor house in the middle of a pedestrian square in the Intendente neighborhood, and between two hardware shops there’s a door. Go through it and up the flight of stairs and you’ll soon be inside what looks like a kitschy old home with vintage furniture and Portuguese memorabilia. Nothing matches, and that’s the point—every room, including the hallways, is different and mis-matched. Relax on the back patio, find a small little corner nook on the first floor, catch some live music or a DJ set on the weekends in the main room, or meander through an art exhibit that’ll likely be running throughout the entire space.
