    Barraca Biruta: By the beach

    by SoccerGirl09 Written Sep 12, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a Nightlife and a Daylife spot. It is a place in "Praia do Futuro" called "Barraca Biruta". During the day, especially during vacation time, there are a lot of good looking people enjoying the beach, people from all around the world. At night, people go there usually when there are concerts, parties and etc. During the month of July, every Tueday, there is the "Festa Normal", where a whole bunch of people go there and dance, it is style night club. Then, on saturdays, there are always, parties that you can go to that is usually also night club style. Year round, there are concerts with famous artists. This picture was taken there last July in one of the "Festa Normal". I really enjoy going there.. Very nice environment.

    Dress Code: Anything you like. That's what I like about Biruta. Just be yourself.

  • Statue of Iracema and Beira Mar: Great place to propose

    by lindinho Updated Aug 14, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Beira Mar area is a real night spot as you will see when you arrive. The story of how the founder of Fortaleza fell in love with an Indian princess is immortalised in the statue of Iracema. A great place to have a kiss or even propose !!!

    Afterwards a walk along to the little market and a drink in one of the bars is in order. However don't forget your mosquito repellent. No malaria here but the things are a real pest !

  • Lounge Beach: Sick of forró?

    by pcalado Updated Aug 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you get sick of the usual nightspots in Fortaleza head to Praia do Futuro on a Thursday night and you will think you are in Ibiza or the Greek Islands for a while.
    Beautiful spot and excellent house music once a week.
    For a different feel try to get there by day for an very different "barraca de praia" experience.
    Think Bora Bora in Brasil!

    Dress Code: Fashionable - But no beach sandals unless you are a VIP

  • Restaurants and dance clubs

    On Mondays I guess 99% of tourists and locals go to 'Forró do Pirata'. A very nice dance club/bar where you can dance to 'Forró' (the most popular dance in the Northeast) and some Axé (from Bahia)and meet new people. There's no way you can stay still!You have to pay a R$ 15,00 entrance. And if you manage to keep dancing until 4 am, they serve their special "Survivors' soup"!

    Dress Code: Casual, summer clothes, comfortable shoes since you will dance a lot.

    Hey guys.. I finally went to Fortaleza again... So now, I will be able to be a little more helpful about where to go!!! I hope it helps!!
    The nightlife in Fortaleza is pretty fun. We always have live concerts and night clubs to go to. On Thursdays nights there is always places by the beach where you can enjoy some very good crab and sit with your friends listening to live music. There is always bars and cafes to go, places where you can sing and dance!!

    Dress Code: Whatever!! You dress however you please.

    From Monday through Monday...

    From Monday through Monday there is always something going on in Fortaleza. A great deal is going to Pagliuca Café, which is actually a bar/pub and order a Gin Fizz or a beer and enjoy the Tuesdays night where they turn the lights off and fire the bar....It's AWESOME
    Spots to hang out: Empire Cafe (my favourite), cafe Pagliuca, Praia de Iracema, Opção Futuro on Friday night, clubs such as Mucuripe and Pimenta Maluca or Órbita on Sunday nights.....

    Dress Code: Whatever!

    Pirata: Monday Night - Pirata

    by SilentAssassin Updated Jan 20, 2005
    Atop Pirata Bar - in Iracema

    If you're EVER in Fortaleza over a Monday night, you just have to experience Pirata. It's where all the locals (both young and old alike) go to dance and enjoy the local music (called Forro (sp?) - pronounced fo'-ho')..

    I had a GREAT TIME in Pirata Bar..

    Althought it's called a bar, don't be confused, this place is HUGE on the inside, with a full stageshow, and a wonderful band.

    bars

    by IneXisTenZ Written May 6, 2004

    Two bars on Avenida Beira Mar, just along from Rua dos Tabajaras, offer a wonderful combination of eating, drinking and live music: the Pontal de Iracema at no. 680 and the Cais Bar at no. 696 are extremely trendy nightspots where you have to arrive early to get a seat.

    Forró - Cultural dance

    by IneXisTenZ Written May 6, 2004

    Fortaleza is justly famous for its forró . Nowhere is it so popular, and there is no better way to see what Cearenses do when they want to enjoy themselves than to spend a night in a dancetaria in Fortaleza. And spending the night is literally what you need to do: although most dancetarias open at 10pm, people don't really start arriving until around midnight, and peak time is in the early hours of the morning. There always seems to be forró on somewhere but the venue changes every night.

    Nightlife is really 'lively' in Fortaleza. You can´t miss 'Forró', a kind of typical dance very different and sensual...

    Forró do Pirata: The most amused bar of Brazil

    by AnaMargarida Written Nov 13, 2005
    Forr�� do Pirata

    Bar very amused with northeast typical music. It only opens at Monday. It is a true madness. Thousands of people dance to the rhythm of the hot sounds of Brazil.

    Dress Code: Informal clothes to be able to dance.
