“Great place!”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Went here randomly on a Thursday night, there was a band on the main floor and we thought the place was dead until we headed to the third floor and that's where the party was. Joao Gabriel was performing - drinks were inexpensive and cover was reasonable. Crowd was fun & lively. People were friendly & music was great. Fun place for tourists.

“Lapa Moves...”
Reviewed March 29, 2011

After one glorious night, this multi-leveled, modern and expansive bar and concert venue in the heart of Lapa, has now become a must-do in Rio for me! The pulsating live samba was a complete thrill to experience; indeed me and the packed crowd partied with various bandas 'til 6:00am and yet the party was far from over! As with most clubs in Rio, there is a card system whereby you receive a card where all your drinks/food are loaded and you pay for them (and your admission, about $50 US) upon your exit. Money well spent.

“never again!”
Reviewed August 19, 2010

Unfriendly 'doormen' (men in black???), who keep you waiting outside until they decide you may go in, 'VIP' tickets for double the price, although you get no table and no chairs... unfriendly 'managers'... No way!!! Tthere are much better places if you want to enjoy the night-life in Rio, for sure!
