    Discoteca Help: A Clubbers Definate

    by Firebabe Written Feb 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Me and some friends went to Help as a last resort one night, I managed to convince them, and we ended up having a brilliant time. It was me another girl and one guy, and a whole lot of prostitutes.
    Ok, me and the other girl got a whole lot of dirty looks in the toilets from the other girls and when we were the only ones dancing on the dance floor, and a women tried to rip me off at the drinks pre pay kiosk, but apart from that, I had the best night in ages, and I know they had fun as well.
    The club is big and the music is fast and loud, and the toilets have big mirrors. What more do you want?
    Girls, youl will find it hard to get a man in here, and guys you will be in heaven!
    The drink prices are reasonable and the barmen are friendly, so go and have fun!

    Dress Code: Anything goes!

    Me in the blue top and my friends

  • Discoteca Help: More details about Discoteca Help

    by vsecrets Written Dec 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here is the last thing to say to those of you who are more sophisticated. About half of the girls working in Help are prostitutes by trade who go to Help every night to make money. They are dressed vulgar, behave vulgar, talk vulgar and go straight to the point very quickly. However, there are plenty of girls there who go to Help because they face financial difficulties and don't know how to make money otherwise. I met a girl who was paying for her university studies with her revenues from Help, another one who was saving money to open a fashion store in her native Belo Horizonte, another one who needed money to invest into her jewelry business in Salvador, another one who was paying English classes, another one who had been dumped by her boyfriend and needed money to feed her baby, another one who was trying to help her ruined family in Favelas (poor outskirts of Rio), another one who worked as a marketing assistant during the day and could not pay her rent... I know they were not ***ting because I spent a lot of time talking to them (I speak Portuguese), and I still remain in contact with some of them. Once you get them to talk about their passion, they can talk for hours. Some of them burst into tears while telling me about their lives and how they ended up in Help. Those girls only come to Help once or twice per month if they live in Rio, or they travel to Rio to work in Help for two or three months until they meet their financial objectives. Those girls are shy, they are dressed more discreetly (though still very sexy), they are more careful about picking their customer, and they will want to get to know you better before they make you an offer. Some of them almost blush when it comes to negotiating the price. Look out for those girls if you are looking for great company. They are as hot as professional whores, and unlike professionals they will never fake an orgasm but behave as a true sexual partner, very caring and loving. Treat those girls really nice and you might as well make a friend.

    Discoteca Help: The Ultimate Weekend Pick-up Spot

    by dbrouwer Written Oct 19, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the qunitessential Copacabana nightspot for dancing, drinking, people watching and picking up girls. Many of the girls here are "working", but you won't find every one. If you are looking for a "non-working" girl, however, this is like looking for a four-leaf clover. The music is some of the best club music that you will experience in Rio and definitely the best DJ's in Copacabana. This is definitely a tourist spot - some of the highest cover charges and drink prices in Rio. On Friday and Saturday night, Help doesn't get going until almost midnight, but then it is usually packed with people. Guy to girl ratios hover in 1:1 to 1:2. Odds are high that you won't go home unaccompanied, but make sure that you have all the details worked out in advance of leaving with someone. You don't take a woman to this place - she will be hasseled beyond believe and hit on about a hundred times. Definitely a meat market.

    Help Discoteca is great, but the area around Help can be dangerous, especially at night. Thats why its always good to have a tour giude when you are in Rio, especially for your first time. I am an English speaking guide in Rio and know all the hot spots, there are many more beside Help! (termas, boites etc.) Email me at termas_guide@yahoo.com if you are coming or planing to come to Rio. I give tours at R$50, per person, per night (R$50 = approx. US$17)

    by Luchonda Updated Dec 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rio de Janeiro is of course famous by the yearly Carnival parades mostly located around the area called "Sambodromo" .
    Thousands of participants - members of "Samba "schools are participating and dancing on the rythm of Samba music.
    Nightlife in Rio - you will find it on the "Avenida Atlantica" But there are for sure better places - not that touristic

    Dress Code: Leisure - but be carefull
    Mega-Disco "Help" is a favourite place for tourists.Hot sweeping music and many beautiful women - they will promise you an unforgetable night on the beaches of Copa
    and than...surprise surprise !!

  • Discoteca Help: Best Club in Rio - HELP (My expert advise)

    by pimpster Written Jan 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The reason this club is named Help, is because once you have had a taste of Brazil, you are going to be so consumed, you will need help in order to function.

    I travel around the world with a group of friends a few times a year. Have seen about 45 countries over 5 continents and RIO, Brazil is in my top 3 of all time. If you are a guy and have any sort of game at all, you will find the most beautiful women in RIO. It's amazing, they are jaw dropping beautiful and ready to party!

    I read all the trash talk about help, but those are from shallow self centered guys with a low self esteem. Yes about 90% of the women in Help are "working girls", but and a very big BUT, they are real down to earth and nothing like you would expect. Just need to know how to talk to them and if you are a good looking guy, or at least a guy you knows how to talk, you don't have to pay for SH*T! If you do end up paying, the going rate is anywhere between 250 - 400 depending on the night and if they like you or not. Here is the best tips you can get. Get to the club about 12:30, if you have to pay negotiate a price before you leave, and here the real important one, NEVER EVER leave the club before 3 am. No matter how bad you want to leave, never leave before 3. You will know why if it happens to you :)

    I can't say enough about Rio and Club HELP. If you are fat, old and bald, or a young stud, you will have an AMAZING time in HELP. Just learn some Portugese before you go, you will be shocked on how little English they speak.

    Dress Code: No Shorts, no Sandals.

    Discoteca Help: Beautiful women... BUT!!

    by O.B.Wilson Written Mar 28, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is all you hope for both good and bad. It has great outdoor seating where you are surrounded by attractive women. Short women, tall women, black women to white women, they are there. Most of the women are really cleaned up and have excellent shapes and are down to hang.

    GO: If you have control of yourself or if you want to be buckwild with find prostitutes.

    DO NOT GO: If you cannot control yourself(& you have a wife/girlfriend at home) and/or you want to meet regular brazilian girls. The women here are working. They are gorgeous working women, but you will GET WHAT YOU PAID for.

    ADVICE: If you get with the women, negotiate and use your own supply.

    Dress Code: No shorts
    No sneakers
    UNLESS you have the money to buy them off.

    Discoteca Help: No help required!

    by Willettsworld Updated May 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is full of local girls and western guys so the combination goes very well together. It's the only disco on the beach front of Copacabana and is billed as the biggest disco in Latin America. If, like me, you're a single guy then you'll be in 7th heaven as the girls are pretty damn hot! But remember, 99% of them are after money if you fancy to persue extra activities elsewhere ;-) You can stand and just let the girls pass you by. Give them the eye and that's it! So this place is more of a meat market than a disco but the girls do dance which is always worth seeing. The music is mainly R&B along with Brazilian dance and pop if you're even bothered to know! Outside, before it opens which I think is 11pm, you'll find a whole load of girls trying to get a guy without having to pay the entrance fee.

    I heard about club HELP before arriving in Rio from a buddy so I figured I'd check it out. I was staying @ the Rio International Hotel, so the location was great.(hotel is also just a few blocks from MARIELS:great resturaunt) HELP didn't dissapoint. There is plenty of cheap booze, good dance music and pretty women to go around. I'll put it this way, " if you can't have a good time here then you need HELP." A must see!!

  • Discoteca Help: French comments.

    by Danyspeed Written May 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pour tous les français un peu faché avec l'anglais qui passerais par là pour avoir des commentaires sur la Discothèque Help.
    Comme vous l'aurez compris vulgairement le Help est une "boîte à putes". Mais tout doit être relativisé.
    Personnellement je suis parti à Rio entre mecs (relations professionnels) pour 4 nuits sur place. Chacune de ces nuit a été passé au Help! Pourtant je n'ai ramené aucune fille à l'hôtel. Voilà mes commentaires:
    1) Le taxi

    En effet la nuit pour aller au Help vaut mieux prendre un taxi. Le trotoir coté plage de copacabana est assez dangereux pour les touristes. Côté hotel c'est mieux mais pas seul.
    Donc taxi jusqu'au Help!
    Pour le retour pareil et pas de souci, les chauffeurs vous attendent au pied de l'escalier.
    2) L'entrée
    Ouverture à 11h
    Fermeture à 5h
    23 reals pour tous avant 12h 30
    33 réals après.

    3) L'interieur
    Un boîte normale rien d'extraordinaire: piste canapé caisse, bar terrasse mezzanine au dessus de la piste Dj motivé.
    4) Le peuple
    En effet quand on va au help on y va entre mec car les filles sont déjà sur place.
    4 nuits: Le Jeudi et vendredi c'est tranquille très soft, il n'y a pas foule, tu peux profiter. Samedi, horreur, tu as tout et n'importe quoi autant en filles qu'en clients. Cette soirée m'a un peu deçu. Dimanche ça ce calme un peu.
    5) Les filles
    Je souligne ce qui a été dit plus haut. Il y a différents types de filles: les pros qui se repèrent à cent mètres, les folles qui ont besoin de fric pour soigner leur dépendance, et des filles plus raisonnables. Alors oui le samedi et le vendredi soir elles ont qu'un objectif. Si tu es cool avec une fille que tu a repéré ou qui t'as repéré, tu danse, tu lui payer un verre tu discute un peu, tu lui dis pourquoi t'es là (pour moi danser et passer la soirée à la cool!), elle reste avec toi un peu le temps d'un verre bu bien tranquillement, puis si tu n'as pas changer d'avis malgré sa persuasion, elle te dis au revoir gentiment et voilà. (suite àprès...)

    Dress Code: ... suite:

    Tu peux donc passer une excellente soirée avec des filles sympas sans pour autant coucher avec. Elles font ce qu'elles veulent. Comme dis plus haut, elles sont indépendantes (pas de boss mais elles sont par 3-4 à se surveiller)et cool (pas de prise de tête.
    Tu veux aller à l'hôtel? Ok. C'est 200 réals+ 50 de piole basta pour 2h ou plus. Tu veux pas aller à l'hôtel? C'est pas grave. Elle reste cool, elle essaye quand même de te faire changer d'avis gentiment mais voilà. Si elle vois que la soirée est calme certaines reste à parler avec toi. Elles ont toute une vie à côté, et elles apprécient qu'on s'y intéresse.
    Perso, j'ai le dernier soir j'ai juste donner un bon pourboire à une fille pour qu'elle reste avec moi pour la soirée. En même temps, nous nous étions convenu que si du travail se présente, elle s'en irais. Je lui est payer à boire, je suis rester coll, on a passé une bonne soirée, et à 7h je suis rentrée à l'hôtel (seul). J'ai passé une excellente soirée, elle aussi. Et tout va bien.

    Tout ça pour dire, qu'au Help, c'est comme partout, tu choisi qui tu veux draguer, l'autre accepte ou non et puis voilà. Si tu dis clairement les choses il n'y aura pas de soucis. Les filles là-bas sont très gentilles et ne se prennent pas la têtes.
    Je recommande donc de passer au moins une soiré au Help! Je n'ai pas regretter mes 4nuits sans sommeil.

    Be cool and move!
    It's not the time to sleep!

    Help really is a dream come true when your a drunk irishman walking into the club, beautiful girls all over you, cheap booze and open late. To cut to the point plenty of the girls prefer sex without a condom so be careful! You don't want the hassle of stds and medical checks to spoil your holiday. If you're out of it make sure she doesn't slip your johnny off, it has happened and you don't notice cause your pissed, then you withdraw and think what the f*** Next day you realise what a stupid boy you've been...

    Discoteca Help: Fun club!

    by Joseph69 Updated Jan 25, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Help is not your ordinary club. It's one place where women outnumber the guys. Since I was in Rio, I had to go to see what the fuss was all about.

    Some of the girls offer their "services" for a fee. I mean, you can take one with you but you must pay for the "privalege" to make love with them. You don't have to of course, as many women are willing to dance with you and get to know you.

    BTW, the women are very very attractive too! You should see the smiles on many guys' faces! :)

    It has an outdoor balcony which is nice and you can view the beach from there.

    Oh, it's also cheaper before 11pm. The entry fee increases after 11pm.

    Dress Code: Guys, where nice jean and shoes. Ladies, sexy attire!
