It's flamboyant, over the top, brimming with live and love. Much like Rio De Janeiro in a nutshell. Love the spirit and the music. Just be prepared to lose yourself. And a word of caution on those caipirinhas, they are lethal, so approach with caution.

This is such a fun club with all types of people and ages from middle aged couples doing samba to live bands to great DJs. Fantastic decor and although there is a long queue outside, it moves quickly.

The place is buzzing with beautiful people and samba. Its a massive club with live samba and a dj area... The decoration is very nice .... If you go there just lose it to samba dont resist it

Good night out option. You can get a real feel of the history of the city. The Scenarium has a lot of antiques which makes it special. The music is really cool

Wonderful place to go for live music and dancing. I'd highly recommend checking out this venue. Get there early if you want a table on the ground floor near the music. We arrived around 7:30 on a Thursday and managed to snag a table but any time after that and it would have been impossible.

Big and spacious with enough bars to keep you happy. They have a fantastic system of only paying on your exit without having to run a tab. Great food. Must experience in Rio.

This is a 3 story restaurant and club. We came on the early side (around 7:30) for an average priced/tasting dinner then enjoyed the live samba music in two different rooms and left at 1:00. There are lots of stairs so don't wear your highest heels.

I love Rio Scenarium. The live band was great and we danced all night long. There were a few rooms with a DJ , so there was music for all age groups. The only thing that stood out was their payment process. They took my picture when I got there and checked my ID. You pay for admission and drinks... More
