Favela Point hasn't closed its doors since it opened. The bar-café has been a success not only in the community, but also in the media. The group appeared on Monday, March 26, in the newspapers Extra and Meia Hora.
On March 15, Favela Point was inaugurated, another venture of the ELAS em Movimento project in Morro da Providência in Rio de Janeiro. The bar-café has a carioca feel and a privileged view of Guanabara Bay and the Port Zone. Residents and tourists have been offered a menu with snacks, meals and first-class service.
"We opened with the community and tourism in mind. Providência needed this initiative. The first bar run only by women and legalized," says Rosineide, one of Favela Point's partners.
The days passed, and with great success, the partners haven't stopped for a minute since the establishment opened, and from Sunday to Sunday, the bar-café is always full.
"We've been selling a lot, there was a Saturday when we sold everything and we could only reopen on Sunday night after replenishing the stock, it was great," said Carolina Pacheco, a partner in the bar-café.
For the past two Saturdays, the community has been hosting a show by a pagode group in the space where the Nossa Senhora da Penha Church is located, and this has attracted residents and people from outside the community. See another report on the group.
