Come for the free live music

Free live music here once a week. Worth taking a look, but take a taxi not a great area to walk to and from. Bar is decent, but we wait a long, long time for overpriced drinks.

I really wanted to see this. As advised I took a cab to get there as it is located off a main road and near a not so nice part of town. Finally got there only to find that staff were reorganising things, or whatever as no one spoke English. The restaurant looked nice but I had just eaten and... More

This place is a must see in a visit to Salvador. The best sunset of the town, specially at saturdays, when there's a jazz jam session there. It is a museum, so you can visit the exibitions earlier, sit at the balcony and enjoy the view.

I fail to grasp why public administrators enjoy opening museums if they know they are not to give much attention and if they don't really care about visitors! This is a case in point. About 10 years ago it was booming and they created a sculpture park, really a great idea with a great view, Now, everything is poorly planned,... More

During all year long, on Saturdays, the Bahia Modern Art Museum (MAM) holds a Jazz Jam Session on its grounds. The show starts around 5 PM and proceeds after a gorgeous sunset until about 9 PM. The musicians are the best that Bahia has to offer (not forgetting that this city rivals Rio de Janeiro and Havana in terms of... More

Very historic setting, awesome view of the bay of Bahia de Todos os Santos and looking back up at the city. The Sat. evening Jazz sessions are wonderful. Very relaxed and very stunning backdrop...friendly musicians and impromptu Jam sessions with travelling musicians...don't even dream of missing it. The Solar da Unhao restaurant underneath the main building in the area where... More

The museum was open the Wednesday evening about 4:30 when we stopped in. There was little inside to recommend it. But it was a peaceful place to sit outside as the sun was setting. It was a very nice modern building surrounded by a beautiful fence, overlooking the bay. But below was a wonderful restaurant and folks have mentioned the... More

The MAM seems to be closed throughout the end of year season and January 2015. The website is not functioning, there isn't even a sign at the gate. You just have to go there by taxi to be sent away by some guard who doesn't speak or understand anything but Portuguese. Mmmmh, nothing to write home about....
