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

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
