Like an octopus, baaBeat has many tentacles. This recent spot in Arroios offers different services that largely reflect the owner’s many passions – bicycles, vegan food, sustainability, animals, community, art and citizen empowerment.
In their bicycle clinic they build, repair and rent bikes and accessories. They will not only repair your bike, but they will show you how to do it and guess what? If you watch, the first repair is free of charge. The idea is to empower people to do things themselves, but if you are not not into tools, they will fix it quickly, at a fair price.
While you wait you can sit outside and try one of their 100% vegan delis (the quiches or the gluten-free pastel de nata are very good) and the craft beer, A.M.O, which brewed in a small brewery in the neighbourhood.
Soon baaBeat will also have their animal clinic up and running, where they will provide animal training services and workshops. Supporting and partnering with local business is their motto, so if you have an idea for a partnership, a new service or a workshop they are all ears. Nothing is off-limits!
