fantastic samba music in this bar. we went on a tuesday night and easily got a table near the live music. A great vibe to the place, with so many people just getting up to dance, at their table, or in the dance area, as the music moved them. Real character of a waiter - with an unforgettable laugh.

This is totally worth the visit, the first obstacle is getting in.. we called them right after we arrived in Rio, it was booked for the whole week. So we just showed up at 9 pm and had to stand in a v long que. It took us about an hour to enter. Bit if you don't book.. don't worry..... More

This experience was suggested by our travel agent and it was a great tip! This destination on a cool street in Lapa was certainly unique! Hard describe the style - but think of it as a giant antique store or museum that you eat and dance in! Each floor, and even each seating area - has a unique set of... More

We went to Rio Scenarium having read about it on Lonely Planet and recommended by someone. When we first walked in we weren't sure how the whole thing works and we tried to get the wait staff's attention for a table but we kept being ignored. So we had to go back to the cash register desk and made a... More

Rio Scenarium is one of the best clubs in Rio. The interior is really beautiful. And you experience live brazilian music. I would go there again for sure! Lapa is the best.

Convinced by our carioca friend we went there on a friday night......man what a line of people cueing up waiting to go in..... Anyway the place was very busy, as expected, but not overcrowded. Very lively place, good atmosphere and casual ambiance made the night very pleasant. 40 Reais just to get in.

We only could enjoy this place from outside, as we were stupid enough to just turn up and hope to get in. My friend had gone there a few weeks prior on a Thursday night, and got in without a reservation. We went on a Saturday night, about 10pm, and the line was honestly about a kilometre long, and 40...
