In the heart of Lapa, the Cultural Cafe Sacrilege is a completely different place. Reference by the wealth of information and a remarkable creativity. Identity is the joke of the 'sacred' with bohemian Rio. The result could only be an interactive...more

Avenida Mem de Sa 81, Rio de Janeiro, State of Rio de Janeiro 20230-150, Brazil
Visited as part of a bar tour of Lapa.
Was busy but had a great atmosphere with good samba band and music. Had a simple Caipirinha which wasn’t the cheapest we had in Rio but worth it for the music and atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I came here on a Friday night. We had decided to come after seeing how highly reviewed it was for nightlife in Rio.
We arrived at about 8.30pm and it was about 20BRL to get in. As we arrived early, we were...More
Our Uber driver didn't know where Scenarium (?) was and dropped us off on a corner. We heard music coming from inside Sacrilege and decided to just go for it. We were three women, arrived about 9 PM, were seated upstairs overlooking the dance floor...More
These guys definitely skimmed my credit card and stole about 1000USD. It's still a fun place to go but either pay by cash or be very careful covering your pin.
I went once and had my cat skimmed a few days later (quite common) I...More
We have chosen this place as random. We just went to Lapa and were walking on the main street where the clubs are. We had such a great night. Actually we were dancing all night. Locals and tourists were dancing and the athmosphere was very...More
Café Sacrilegio has a very festive atmosphere. I offers very good food as well as its music. If you wish to drink something that is not on the menu, you just have to ask for. If they have, they will serve you. The service is...More
This more of a live music, eating and drinking place rather than an attraction. Shows are not on every night but you could find out when they are on and book a table through your hotel. There are usually 2 groups playing Samba and Bossa...More
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that
used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
