in the village: Forro and drinks
In the high season there are in Jeri many beach party and in the last years there are some lounge bar with a sophisticated atmosphere, like in the main european town!
Teh best for me is to ask to the local people the best night event in the week...there are 2 Forro club that in the high seasonare open allthe night, but in the low s only some evening....there are a lotoof little bar, nice where you can spend you night talking in front of a good caipirinha...the best for me is the bar all around the big tree inthe main sandy square!
Another way is to buy some cerveza ben jelada and standing in front of the sea looking to the star!
beach: hmm oh mmm.. nightlife?
not much really.. eat, walk on the beach if you not afraid of FROGS . As we were in rainy season they were everywhere!!! just too many of them.
But you can walk by the beach and get those 'special' drinks from trolleys :)
Dress Code: SIMPLE
Jeri Beach: Beach Party
The beach parties at Jeri are a great way of enjoying the nightlife and meeting people. The beach is a hive of activity at night especially at the weekends. Drinks stalls are set up along the road leading up into the town where you can buy you Caipirinha, cachaça and all other evil Brazilian drinks :)
There is even live entertainment with music spilling out onto the beach as well as the Capoeira demonstrations.
Great way to kick start your night before you head onto the indoor clubs and bars.
Stalls with Cocktails: Caipirinha, Caipifruta, Caipirosca, Capeta
The final part of Rua Principal gets really busy at night. They put numerous stalls offering all imaginable traditional Brazilian cocktails, from the most popular caipirinha (cachaca with lime) and caipifruta (cachaca with one of the tropical fruits) to caipirosca (vodka with lime) and other roscas (vodka with one of the tropical fruits) and capeta. Besides, they have also Cuban cocktails. My favourite were the classic caipirinha and caipikiwi (cachaca with kiwi fruit).
While sipping refreshing drinks you can watch passersby. It is in any case a nice spot to begin the night, meet the people and decide on where to spend the rest of the night.
Mamma Afrika: Live Music
Every other day the party takes place here. People start arriving as from 1 am and as opposed to Sky, there's an entrance fee of 3 or 5 reais.
The place has no roof so it's very nice at night. Sometimes they have forro night, or salsa night or as in our case rock night (or I should say "rocky" as the Brazilians say :)
Sky: Forro dance!
Every other night they have Musica ao Vivo (Live Music) here and there's dancing. Forro is one of the most typical dances in Brazi, so make sure you get to see some while you're there. It's sooo sexy! I loved it! You'll see lots of locals dancing there, some of them are real experts, so it's a pleasure to watch them... and envy them! If you're a girl, you may be asked to dance with a local guy... take the chance! But be warned that this dance is really sexy, so you shouldn't be shy and let the guy lean over you.
There's no entrance fee and you can even go in with a drink from outside.
At the end of the main road: Drinks after dinner
At around 6 pm the main road (beach side) gets packed with drinks vendors who put up their stalls until very early in the morning. They all offer the same drinks, including the most famous Brazilian one: Caipirinha (cachaça, lime, sugar and crushed ice). But go for others! I HIGHLY recommend Capeta, which is made with: condensed milk, coconut milk, cinnamon, guarana powder and syrup, vanilla escence and vodka. I needed a doze every night and although I've brought all the ingredients back home, it's not the same to sip one while chatting next to the beach... Another classic is Piña Colada: rum, coconut milk and pineapple.
It's a great place to socialize and to learn about parties where to go afterwards.
Around 10PM,the parties start,with "Forro" (regional rythym) all over the corners.
Besides,places with live music have also reggae shows,rock,etc..
During the hig season,mondays are the only days without parties,and in he low season only Wednesdays and saturdays are festive nights!Here a picture of Forro partytime!!(me in black in the middle..)
Usually the parties are free,or have a very simbolic charge!
ROMANTIC OR ALL NIGHT LONG FUN!
For those looking for romantic atmosphere,what can be more special than a place with no streets lamps,where you can just enjoy the unbelievable starry sky!!
We went to several places to make fun,dancing and eating,the best:the marvelous beachside bar " TAVERN ",with a cold beer always waiting for you,a great espresso,warm cheese buns or,my FAVE " Acai " (a tipical amazon tropical fruit) ice cream,mixed with banana and granola!!Gosh,I miss it!!
It also has a mezanine with a beautiful view
