    Telly great place, danced all night!
    Fab food, great staff serving
    The staff when you first check in could act a bit more friendly, we were not asked to bring ID, luckily we had a photo of our passport page

    Finally we found a place were they sell good beers and are proud of it. The owner could explain a lot about the different beers and they were all very tasty.
    Rio needed a place like this, hip, cozy great for having a drink with friends and with a selection of food.
    The owner kindly offered some new appetizer he was trying out.
    I would deffintly recommend this place

    I am struggling with giving this place 4 stars because I really did not enjoy it. But I have to be honest that my main problem with the place was the type of music. Downstairs was 100% grunge. Upstairs was a DJ playing terrible music that I guess maybe could technically be called rock. But they do draw a crowd that seems to enjoy it.
    They tick most of the boxes on safety and service from my experience. Food was edible, bouncers seemed watchful but not aggressive. Waitresses were attentive and polite mostly. There is a minimum consumption per ticket, so make sure you distribute your orders evenly over both tickets if you are a couple.
    Make a reservation and arrive around 9 if you want a table and dont like standing in line to enter.
    I wouldn't call this a Rock Bar . . . unless maybe you refer to it as a Grunge Rock Bar.
    I would not go back, but only because I disliked the music so much.

    I visited that place last Thursday night and they were performing samba live. You can get a beer can for 6 reales and enjoy the music. I loved the place, it’s small but cozy.

    Stayed in Rio for 22 days and went out most nights and honestly feel as though I'm qualified enough to say this is by far the best night out Rio has to offer.

    The location is slightly far so you want to go with friends. Split the uber.

    Entry to this amazing club is only 20 rial.

    To go upper levels its an additional 20 but tbh there was a way better atmosphere at the bottom, more dancing, less pretentious people haha

    Drinks are unbelievably cheap here so a good night is ensured. 2 rial for a beer or vodka.

    The DJs play decent music too not just constant samba or funk.

    Highly recommended if in Rio and want the real Brazilian experience

    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.

    Bar staff and the band were friendly.

    Even tried our hand at dancing Samba which was a laugh!

    Would recommend visiting if part of a group but if travelling alone may get a bit lost in the crowd!

    During our weeklong stay in Rio (first time) we enjoyed three times the evening at Beco das Garrafas. The highlight of the place is the live music, each time there was a different band of singers and musicians, all very excellent.
    Food and drinks are ok, do not expect too much.

    My family, including my 16 y/o daughter and my 14 y/o son, went to the club on Monday night to see samba do trabalhador (Worker’s samba). It was from 4:30 to 10pm. We got there about 6pm. We got a bucket of drinks and some food from the food stalls there. It was hard to see the band from where we stood, but the music filled the room. As the night went on it got more crowded. We had a great time! The music sounded so good and so many people were singing along.

    Note about getting there- we took the metro to the second the last orange line stop and then took a 7-10 minute Uber ride from there to the club. We took an Uber back to our hotel afterwards.

    Only for those who really like a samba, and the detail is pure samba !!! Whoever comes in RJ can not miss the TIA Pagoda DOCA.Ao Commanded by Nor, son of nostalgic Tia Dock, pastor of the Old Guard of Portela, this is the most traditional Rio pagodas. Samba has a repertoire focused on the good modern pagodas, especially those of the Cacique de Ramos class. Arriving early can still sit after the place fills and no one else is parado.O samba returned to the old address in Madureira and from 13h to 18h on Saturdays is making room for new composers. After the samba come loose. Not command the wheel (vocals), Tuta (Cavaco), Marcio Ricardo (guitar), Emerson (banjo), William (Surdo), Keko (percussion), Carlinhos (Cuica), Ronaldinho (Pandeiro), Cidinho (tantan) and Dom Elton (percussion). It is common to see there consecrated samba dancers to give a soup.

    First, there aren't any kind of sign mentioning its name. But, if you go there on a Friday ou Saturday, you'll recognize by finding a crowded place, full of nice and fun people in front of it, in the side and in the back of the bar. There are burgers with great ingredients and some snacks. Few options of food, but lots of options to drink. Takes a long time to have your food, but the taste and environment are totally worth it.

    We were taken there by Brazilian friends who heard about it from a friend of theirs who lives in Rio. We would not have stayed in the area after dark without the local knowledge, because it looked quite earthy. We travelled to and from our hotel by taxi, and once our friends negotiated a table, we had a fantastic couple of hours there. The band was excellent and there was good food and drink. The atmosphere was very, very relaxed, with mainly full of local people, in couples or groups. Highly recommended.
