Love the place but I s not smart how they manage the payments. I have being there couple times and it is always horrible the payment moment. Huge line, more than 1,5 hours waiting to pay! It is not smart at all.

Need to arrive early to get a decent table. Long lines & very slow moving as well. Virtually no English & no well organised. Great samba music but food & drinks pretty limited & lots of deep fried options. Drinks beer & Caiperinhia only. Staff not well trained & unaware of what was included in cover charge. Great ambience with lots of eclectic art & collectables on display. The street outside is also entertaining & quite safe

This place is gorgeous from the atmosphere point of view! This is the only place that truly made me dance during the last 10 years! The music and Brazilian dance is something outstanding! The club is multi-level with incredible design which is different in each zone. The meal are great! This place has some magnetic very light atmosphere where you really relax, getting fun and feel happy!

This is literally a tourist trap. We waited for about 30 minutes to get into this ramshackle club. I didn’t mind so much as we chatted with fellow line standers and listed to music. There is no VIP or bottle service at this venue. Scenarium is a three level old mansion with effectively folding tables and chairs scattered about that they serve drinks and food at. We were forewarned about the food so stayed away. On the second floor there is a connection to a dance club. That part was ok. The DJ played a mix of Brazilian, Latin and American top 40 hits. One positive thing about this club is that you will likely find some English speaking patrons and to some degree staff. The problem comes when you go to leave the venue. Instead of using credit cards or cash to pay as you go, they take your photo upon entry and give you a house charge card to charge your drinks/food on. At the end of the night everyone has to queue up, turn in their cards and pay their tab. This resulted in an hour long line TO GET OUT OF THE CLUB! If you go and you’re even thinking about leaving, get in line. There is nothing worse than feeling trapped in a venue in a place that is not your own. God only knows what would happen if you lost your card and someone else started charging to it or if a waiter mixed them up. Besides being a fire hazard of mass proportions and a museum of junk (read armless statues not like Venus) this place just isn’t worth it. Enjoy it from the outside and visit a better bar on the same street.

This a great samba club, but don’t eat here. Tried strips which they had not even warmed up! Since the music is so good I gave them a three but the food is zero!
