Its a typical Brazilian club with live music.. We got there early so very quick to get it but its approximately $20 usd jus to go in! Place was packed with as many locals as there were tourists... We left early around midnight and the place had a huge line!!

I like this place. I tasted a nice food (very different). I enjoyed a great company. I liked the building itself, interior design and a little history about this place. I liked music, but I expected much more from this place. May be because it was advertised as an excellent, most popular place in Rio, but nobody dance. May be... More

We were a bit shocked when we arrived and we were told that we had to pay 25 reales as cover when we got out. Once we got in it started to pay for itself. Great live music, people having fun and awesome decoration. The food was quite good. We went for appetizers and a main dish. In my case... More

Loved this restaurant! The setting on a street filled with antique shops and high end clubs is excellent. The decor of the restaurant - also filled with antiques - is a treat. The food was excellent - we tried all of the daily specials and they were served fast, and hot and beautifully presented. I loved the space and want... More

We got a table right next to the stage. Dinner was good but nothing special. Once the band started playing, the place came alive. The dance floor is pretty small and got cry crowded quickly, but that just added to the fun. Great place to lose your inhibitions and just dance and enjoy yourself.

It is a very unique venue, where they have antique furnishings and other items on display. We really enjoyed the live Brazilian band and the dancing, We had appetizers which were pretty good. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to hear some good live music. Scenarium is located in the Lapa section of Rio. It was very easy... More

This place is huge with several levels and different rooms, live music, good drinks and interesting historical decor. Lots of tourists but also locals, good for dancing or just people watching.

The Best place to party in Rio de Janeiro, I would rate this place as one of the BEST clubs I've been to, There is an entrance fee at the door, I paid 40 Reais for it, but the drinks prices are cheap and reasonable, Make sure to bring ID's as they strongly require you to show it at the... More
