“Lots of posers, unfriendly”
Review of Studio RJ

Studio RJ
Ranked #72 of 143 Nightlife in Rio de Janeiro
Attraction details
Reviewed November 27, 2013

I was looking forward to going here based on the reviews I read on other sites. Went there one Saturday night and lined up with the rest of the folks waiting to get in. Once in there, immediately I admired the cool view of beach from the windows behind the bar. Music was very good and crowd a tad bit more dressed up than your average Rio club. I would characterize as smart dress. Guys still in fancy t shirts and designer jeans while women in cute little dresses. So until this point, I thought this was a cool place and a good find.

But I later found the people to be so pretentious and unfriendly. The bar staff, the patrons, everyone. I've lived here in Rio for a few months now and go out all the time. And this place had the most unfirendly crowd I've experienced. I guess the stiff cover and beach view bring in the wrong crowd? I have no idea.....

Just next to bar Astor, Studio RJ is a relatively new (I think, given that we were probably the only non-Brazilians in there) music venue, with shows from samba to jazz and bossa nova. It is quite modern but feels very authentic and the music was great. We listened to a session of percussion samba for 30r by turning up early and putting ourselves down on the guest list (otherwise I think was 60r). Music started at about 9h and went on till well after midnight.
