The atmosphere here was terrific. The food was delicious and the drinks were just what the locals enjoy. The place got really busy after 10 as the music started. This is a great place to gets feel for real Rio nightlife. It's also in a...More
We visited here based on others advice. You pay to get in and the food is nice and tasty. The club though with its local live music was my favourite. Not somewhere to go if you don't like being confined as it does get busy....More
This place is just the best! In Rio for our 25th Anniversary, planned to go to Rio Scenarium but it was closed. I'd wanted to come here anyway so we decided to take the short walk to here from Scenarium. We were not disappointed!!! Fantastic...More
Spent a night in here just before Christmas. Fantastic samba band playing and locals dancing. A lovely atmosphere.
Really friendly staff too.
The only thing was their payment system. You are given a form when you arrive, then the barman fills it in every time...More
A place to hear some of the well known artists play and some up and coming talent as well. Popular with Cariocas, the bar has got that "local" feel. A must stop for lovers of Samba, Chorinho or Samba de enredo. Try and catch Ana...More
Been there for a jazz show (actually we wanted to hear samba music, but that day they performed jazz).
The place is very nice, and serves good food: we ate the lasagna steak which was a very unusual dish for me, so it was a...More
In the buzzing nightlife of the Lapa district, this place offers brilliant live samba with ever changing bands. Great caipirinha, nice food and people dancing samba all night give these place a fantastic vibe.
Didn't know what to expect from other reviews but basically you can get a taxi to drop you off in Lapa and then just walk around to whatever venue you what. Carioca da Gema was fun and inexpensive drinks. Great place to visit but more...More
The only thing special about the place is its old building. There is a long stair to get in the place, as it is on the second floor. There in no other way to get in. The menu is horrible. It is just a copy...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.
