2463 18th St NW
Washington, DC 20009 Adams Morgan Rate and review


Bossa Bistro + Lounge is an Adams-Morgan institution bringing you the best in live world music, Brazilian tapas, cutting edge art, spoken word events, and the finest cocktails on the strip. Unique in every regard, Bossa is one of those rare grown-and-sexy places in the city where you can feel equally at home with a date, your posse, or your grandpa.

Bossa is famous for its nightly shows, featuring formidable acts in the biz - Junior Marvin of Bob Marley and The Wailers renown; Cheick Hamala Diabate, DC's resident Malian griot; Thievery Corporation's Sitali; Brazilian songstress Cissa Paz; salsa sensations Alfredo Mojica, Raul Morel, and Tumbao; and other celebrated powerhouses grace the house regularly.

You don't have to save up for a churrascaria extravaganza to sample Brazilian fare here. With a head chef direct from the state of Minas Gerais, you can enjoy national culinary treasures tapas-style and kick back with a caipirinha for extra authenticity. Carnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free folks all have options for the tasting.

The art gallery features local painters, photographers, and lithographers with a global and unusual vision. Shows rotate, but "Bossacima Project" - a take on da Vinci's "The Last Supper" recreated with Bossa regulars - is the house's trademark and most provocative conversation piece, and it maintains its permanent home above the main floor bar.
