“Enchanting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

My fiance, his friend, and I danced the night away in this multi-leveled samba dance club/restaurant/antiques story/bar in the heart of Lapa. The atmosphere is magical! We loved it!
Between awesome caiparinhas, we spoke with other Brazilian tourists in broken Portuguese and just had a jolly good time. Dress to impress, and work on your samba before entering!

PS. You will be given a 'passport' or 'bill' upon entering, onto which the barmen will indicate and tabulate your drinks and such. You need a piece of identity to enter, but I didn't have any on me and they let me in nevertheless. If you lose this sheet, you will have to pay a predetermined lump sum at the end.

“Go here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

A taxi driver recommended we went here. Very unusual club, with great busy atmosphere and oh, oh my, the Caipirinhas are superb.
A must see if you are in Rio. Best go before 10 if you want a seat.

“Great place but lots of tourists (like us)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

The food, service and value was excellent, as was the live music. The only problem was that it was a little more touristy than we were expecting. We did leave fairly early though and the clientele seemed to be changing as the night went on.

“Live music, caipirinhas and great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

As you walk into the venue you will be amazed by the decorations. This night club is also an antique store during the day! It really creates such an unique vibe!

The food is great, they have a wide variety of snacks to choose from. They have a live band playing Brasilian music and the crowd is a mix of locals and tourists.

Remember to bring you ID if you want to get in as they will ask you for it at the door. And do not loose the card they give you as you walk in, the card will track everything that you have ordered. The only downside is when you want to leave you have to stand in line to "check out".
