With its casual mix of game day events and biweekly samba parties, AOA is part opulent sports bar, part festive eatery. A small semicircular bar near the entrance is supplemented by a larger stone one in the focal point of the space, where those looking to imbibe can select from 25 beers on tap while they watch either the game or the pizzas sliding out of a wood fire oven. Checkerboard floors and dark wooden tables combine with a tall back bar, wireframe chandeliers, and ornately sheathed columns to produce an atmosphere at once rustic and decadent, but comfortable in any case. Food fare runs decidedly Americano, and those looking for a quick (or hours-long) evening taste of Brazil can saunter over to the auxiliary Cachacaria Boteco bar, a mishmash of tapas, strong cachaca cocktails, and Brazilian-American artifacts so dense you can practically smell the beach party.
