EON: Dance club of the moment
Hottest nightclub in Curitiba supposedly, went there once and did enjoy myself. It has a large bar and lounge area to the left and then a separate room with a modest sized dance floor with a bar to the right of it. Many pretty people and top DJs in Brazil have played there. The music is house techno, there is a VIP section that is just an area elevated from the dance floor, roped off but completely open with people coming and going. There is a bar in the dance floor area, the club is not very big at all by club standards but still will get packed. Thursday night is their night.
Dress Code: No jeans, shorts, or sneakers. People were very well dressed, but it is still a casual environment, nothing too formal. Women were much more dressed up then the men.

Emporio São Francisco - good but smoked
This is actually one of the best rock'n roll bars in Curitiba, their livemusic is great and the saturday's band "Sexofone" is pure 70's rock. Meantime, be ready to go thru a totally smoked environment. The bar was built on a small old house, and everybody is smoking without any air refreshning or exchanging. Many people feel very unconfortable there. Whatever, expect to throw your clothes away if you don't lead them to some laundromat next day.
Dress Code: very casual - jeans and t-shirt

Bar Do Alemao/Schwarzwald: Bier, Bratwurst und Fritten
Bar do Alemao (the German's bar) is a great indoor/outdoor place that serves excellent german food and beer in a typical traditional german environment. Excellent berr and food. You'd think you are in Bavaria.
Dress Code: informal
Bar Folha Seca: "Happy Hour" place
This nice bar has an informal but warm atmosphere and it is mostly visited by all kinds of people after working hours until late night...

Rua 24 Horas
This is a great idea in Curitiba. It´s a covered pedestrian mall with a mini-market, clothing stores, electronics, cafes/diners/bars, and even a free internet cafe (that´s right ..... free!) That´s open 24 hours a day; 7 days a week. Nice to stop by at any time of the day, but especially useful if you´re stumbling out of a club at 4AM in the morning and would like a bite to eat. It´s especially popular with the young crowd but all are welcomed.
There´s also a very handy tourist information booth that´s staffed (you got it!) 24 hours a day. The free internet cafe is quite popular so you often have to reserve in advance if you want to surf there. If you don´t feel like waiting then there´s also a ``pay for time´´ cybercafe in the mall that has many terminals and it has good rates.
Dress Code: No particular dress code.

Rua 24 Horas: For Night Owls...
The Rua 24 Horas is a small covered arcade of shops and restaurants in the Centro Civico area. Although some locals have said that "no one goes there anymore," at least it is one place that is open literally 24 hours a day/night. If you need to buy some groceries, want to eat, get a haircut/manicure, buy some magazines at 3:30am, Rua 24 Horas is open. There is also a free Internet location here, but it is not open 24 hours. It's busy during the day and early evening, and residents have priority.
There are not as many shops as I had expected. The restaurants are mainly pizza/Italian food places, but there are pasteles, sandwiches and an Arab food place.
There is a small courtyard area, where on Friday and Saturday evenings, local musicians play and people sit, drink, and just enjoy each others' company. One Saturday night, my travelmate and I went there just to have something to eat and sit and read for awhile. There were two musicians playing some Latin American and English songs (Simon and Garfunkel, Pete Seeger, etc. folksy type music.) It was a nice atmosphere to hang out. A diverse crowd--young people, families, etc.
Worth a visit, just to see, sit and relax.
Dress Code: Whatever attire you have is fine. It is an open place.
Crossroads: The best rock bar in town-- Live music
Well they just play pure rock musci. Excellent musicians and nice atmosphere.
A MUST to go there at least once you are in Curitiba.
Especially Fridays and Saturdays
Check out the badn Cracker Jack!!! Cool guys you can always ask them to play some special songs, but it should be rock.
Dress Code: It is a rock bar, so come on, but you have to make a reservation, so that you get a table, which you should have to place all your stuff and the beers in the ice box from Miller.

A rustic bar, inspired on german way of drinking beer. So, many german dishes, music (however it plays other rhythms) and beautiful people.

John Bull´s: Another good rock bar
Excellent rock and live music. I think it is an excellent place, you should coe early to get a place upstairs to see the band playing.
