Boox Supper club and model lounge in Ipanema
hours7pm-4am, Mon. - Sat.
Crystal chandeliers and tufted-purple velvet on long rococo sofas are what first grab the eyes as you walk into Boox, one of Ipanema’s hottest social lounges and supper clubs. An architectural box of sorts, the front of the building is drawn in panels of exotic Brazilian woods and tall panels of glass concealing silky white drapery and super-sparkle of one massive chandelier. Inside, however, the eyes become transfixed on the crowd of show-off models and their super bronze and buff boyfriends dressed to the nines in white linens and designer beachwear that only a true Brazilian could pull off.
Boox is divided into two rooms, including a first-floor dining room of concrete floors and pristine tables encircled in white slip-covered chairs and that big, bold purple sofa that that acts as a more comfy-banquette to the Starck Ghost chairs lined up on the other side of the tables. A mix and mash menu of grilled meats and sushi fills the hungry stomach while the upstairs lounge that is one of the hottest in Ipanema with nightly DJ and sultry lounge scene for the pre-nightclub crowd fills the hungry eyes.
If you’re not sure about your post11pm door clout, make a late dinner reservation and then insist that the hottest escort you into the upstairs lounge.
