We were looking for some nightlife and our tour guide recommended this place. It didn't disappoint. With three stories of interesting spaces to explore, a balcony overlooking the street and another over the live band playing samba music and the dance floor, we had a great time! The band was really talented and there were just the right amount of... More

Our tour guide had recommended this place when we asked him where we could go on a weeknight for a drink or two. Although we went in with low expectations, we were pleasantly surprised at how big the place is. There was a place for everyone, from live music to a DJ spinning a mix of local and pop music....

Fantastic club. There is a cover charge of R45 however this gets you into this great venue which holds up to 2000 people. Theres live singing, food to order and 3 floors for you to dance the night away. Great venue - great night.

It was Wednesday night. We thought this was a club, we arrived early and enjoyed the dinner first. Even we did not bring our IC, they allowed us to enter with the show of credit card. It never turned to the club on Wednesday night, but their live samba show was great, best samba singers I saw in Rio. Also... More

Rio Scenarium has been recommended by a lot of people and magazines for good reason. It is most definitely worth seeing while in Rio. The city lives for samba and you can see it and feel the energy here. It's a nice place and there's plenty of places to just have a caipirinha if you don't want to join in.... More

We came here on a Thursday night for a samba night. We were told there are 3 levels and each level has a dance floor with different genres on each floor, live music, techno and hip hop. However there were only two floors with music and half the floors were filled with people dining. There is one or two main... More

You MUST go. Do yourself a favour and go early - and stay all night. This is a total experience and bring your dancing shoes. Everyone is here: young and old and everyone is moving to the samba music. The design is outstanding, all 3 floors. You should visit all floors and all rooms. You pay 40 Reais to get... More

We were told by many people to visit Rio Scenarium, and we were also told that the area is a bit 'edgy' so we were very cautious going there (as we usually are wherever we go in Rio). We went on a Saturday night, couldn't get a reservation for food but just turned up at 8.45pm. Got straight in, no... More

We went to Rio Santorium on our last night in Rio. We were asked for our passports at the door but we only had a copy of one passport and luckily a phone picture of the second. That was fine. The entrance was $R 30 pp but we were handed over our order cards and supposed to pay for everything... More
