This huge club is all about Brazilean music and Brazilean drinks, mixed with a great atmosphere without the dizzy crowds.

In the same neigborhood of Rio Scenarium, you find also this Disco. For me is a must to try, especially for younger generation (20-25) is a really nice place to go and dance. Generally they also play international music and the Disco has 3 floors.

Lapa 40 Graus is a bar where they play live music every Friday and Saturday. In the middle of the crazy lapa nightlife and music scene. Brazilians love it. Long queues to get in on week-ends, so you may want to go a bit early....More
