Lapa 40 is located as the name says at the bohemian neighborhood of Rio, Lapa! Place has 3 storeys with the ground being the best for pub grubs and cold beer while listening some live music and the mezzanine is the magic happens... all the time management is bringing renowed artists and stage is totally intimate, so you can be...

Among the 4 best places to enjoy the night in Lapa. For those who have visited the Rio Scenarium worth knowing Lapa 40 °. Good music, good drink and a place where the locals frequent. Watch out for your drinking glass. I always carry with you.

The only good thing about this place is the live band that plays in the first floor. The drinks were very expensive and didn't worth the price. The waiter was very arrogant after I complained about my drink. I ordered a caipirinha and couldn't taste any alcohol in it. He said it was because of the sugar and then I... More

Downstairs = cover band of American and international classics (in Portugese). Make your way upstairs to the top level, where before 11PM you can find hilarious paid dancers who get the show going, and then the lights come down and it's alllll dancing and bumping club music (though 90% of the music was Brazilian). It still feels like a fun... More

Lapa 40 Graus is a bar where they play live music every Friday and Saturday. In the middle of the crazy lapa nightlife and music scene. Brazilians love it. Long queues to get in on week-ends, so you may want to go a bit early. As in most Brazilian nightclubs, you may eat there too. Lots of beer and caipirinha... More

The band that was on really kicked! They did a lot of covers, old and new. Their instruments (drums, base and guitar) together with a couple of mac's with synth music was a great combo! Orders at the bar is made simple, since you don't deal with money before you leave (except the entrance). Cool place, we give our warmest... More

The place is huge and has different environments (you can sit to eat and drink or go dancing, etc). The music is also great! Higly recommended!

Lapa 40 Graus is an amazing club in the heart of the party center of Rio - Lapa! I went there during this year's Carnival and as you can imagine - all the streets around were so crowded. And my first impression of the club was it's nice and strict entrance organization so despite all these people there is an... More

We went there on a friday night of August with friends, the place was full, especially the third floor. There was a band playing live music (from typical brazilian dance music to universal hits), there was also a group of dancers that were showing the crowd choreographies. You really dont have to know how to dance, the excitement of the... More
