Restaurant, bar, night club, lounge… These are just some of the services offered at 00 Rio de Janeiro, a place where charm, refinement and great service unite, winning over the locals, visitors and foreigners in general. With an innovative and hybrid project, this establishment consists of an outdoor garden, a restaurant with contemporary cuisine, and a modern dance floor, creating the perfect atmosphere for meeting up with friends as well as romantic dinners.
The candle lighting emits an air of sophistication, while being relaxing and welcoming. In the outdoor garden, sofas and bean bag chairs keep the cool vibe going, where you can meet and make friends. Proof of this is the community table – the bar’s calling card – and what strengthened the idea. “It is essential. I love traveling alone and I know how annoying it is to eat alone at a table. With this community space, you always feel like you are part of a group and inevitably end up making some new friends. Everyone loves it.”, states Arnaldo de Merian, 00’s creator. The dance floor, where the traditional parties are held, has intimate lighting and is full of projections that change according to the music being played.
00’s success story began in 2000, when it was just a restaurant. “One day, it was raining a lot at the end of the night and the clients weren’t able to leave. The kitchen was already closed, but we decided to keep the bar open due to the high volume of people. One girl asked us to turn up the music – which was ambient music – and when I took notice, they had made a makeshift dance floor, which only ended at 5 am.”, states the owner.
Very well known in the city, the restaurant at 00 specializes in Contemporary Cuisine and has a varied menu which includes flavorful and elaborate dishes that mix Brazilian, cosmopolitan and Asian elements. Sushi Bar, appetizers, salads, fish, meat, pasta and desserts are some of the options that clients will find here. Besides all this, 00 has an exclusive contract with the wine importer VINCI, which means it carries 6 white wine labels, 18 reds and many half bottles.
And if anyone becomes a fan of this gastronomic experience, the restaurant also has a buffet service, called “00 Culinária”, which unites creativity with experience, when hosting corporate events, banquets, weddings, parties, cocktails, lunches, dinners, brunches, breakfasts and coffee breaks, in all of Rio de Janeiro and surrounding areas. The structure offered by 00 Culinária can meet the needs of 20 to 2000 people, and even offers consulting services for decorations, DJs, security, receptionists and valets.
Open from Tuesday to Sunday, 00 Rio de Janeiro has also become a great place for those who want to party. Legendary parties such as DUO, Stereozero and Becape has made this location a meeting place for beautiful and interesting people, from all walks of life. Considered the face of Rio, events here can last up to 12 hours, to the delight of Arnaldo, who chose the name “00” because, among other theories, if you turn the numbers sideways it becomes the infinity symbol.
