Highs + Lows

  • The house itself is stunning. Grand and airy and positioned right at the top of Santa Teresa with absolutely stunning views of Rio.

  • Rio is hot...in so many ways. Thankfully where the house is located it’s at least ten to fifteen degrees cooler than the beaches below. Given that it’s ninety degrees in the winter, that’s a plus!

  • The food. I mean, it’s a Fat Radish pop up...there is always delicious food being served.

  • The bar, provided by Absolut Elyx, was set up by Argentine mixologist Tato. Excellent cocktails at all times.
