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 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....

The Solar do Unhão (MAM) is a wonderful mansion with a chapel beside. Facing the Baía de Todos os Santos with its gorgeous view. But as a museum is a shame with nothing inside. The only thing that worth a visit is the wonderful staircase, a piece of wood,beautifully crafted in the middle of the main lobby. The MAM's cafe... More

but there is a jazz show every Saturday starting at 17:00. Take a taxi because it is far from parking or busstops. Young and old come to enjoy the relax atmosphere
