    I went here on a Thursday night and they played drum & bass in the upper room and rock in teh lower room. Also went on a Monday night and it was not that good but you're options are limited on a Monday night.

    May 2009: If you are looking for a place to go with a group of friends, I would recommend it. They have the lounge downstairs and upstairs is the dancing. People are dressed up....the only bad thing is if you go there to meet local girls or just to meet girls, goood f'n luck! You gotta have TIGHT game and its not like in the USA where the girls...

    Avenida Atlantica. This seaside avenue was the best place to stroll in the evenings. Every part of this street had a diffrent feeling. And at every stand there where all kinds of things to eat and drink, and some even had live music where you can sit and have a caipiriña and listen to some live bossa nova. And every week starding from Wed on they...

  • Emporio

    Rio de Janeiro Nightlife

    My favourite nightlife spot turned out to be a place called Empório! It is another busy, small and FULL place that has the cheapest drinks (at least that we found) in Ipanema... not to mention some of the STRONGEST drinks:) There is a great mix of people (more locals here! plenty of tourist too and the people are not too young either!) inside...

  • Bombar

    Rio de Janeiro Nightlife

    Bombar is a small bar in Leblon. It's popular among younger crowd and perfect for a first place to visit and drink before hopping into nightclubs. The entire second floor is a dance floor with dj blasting house and techno style music. I believe the entrance fee is R20 for guys and R10 for gals. All staff members were extremely kind and...

  • Arcos da Lapa

    Rio de Janeiro Nightlife

    One of the best places for young people to hang out in Rio is the Lapa neighborhood. At night, the locals gather around Arcos da Lapa aqueduct. There are a lot of bars and clubs in the area, but most people prefer to hang out and drink beer in the cobble-stoned side streets of this neighborhood. Sometimes it is just too hot to be inside, especially...

    When the cab dropped us off in front, I was a little bit worried about where we were. It's seemed to be in the middle of nowhere and I finally notice a 00 in the distance. The atmosphere inside was very trendy. The tables and benches to hang out at and have drinks were kind of low to the ground and had small candles all around. There were lights...

  • Guapo Loco

    Rio de Janeiro Nightlife

    For some reason..........another mexican place. And also............another small mexican place, but gets busy and has a good crowd. For if you want to go out to somewhere that you haven't yet been, it Tuesday night and you're not quite up for the big night out or club scene. Plus you can grab yourself some dinner while you're at it.

    Rio de Janeiro Nightlife

    Thank you - I bought some! :-) Just wanted to share with fellow travelers out there that couples dancing here is a big deal. It's where friends get together for socializing and having fun. The gafieiras are dance halls (saloons) where people come either on their lunch hour or at night to dance samba, salsa, lindy hop etc. I found a really good...

  • Emporio 37

    Rio de Janeiro Nightlife

In a nice area, safe, and good folks friendly service.For a night startup...

    The old part of town in Recife has great nightlife and lot's of live concerts in the weekends.It used to be a very seedy part of town with lot´s of prostitution and crime, but these days it has become a trendy area with cool clubs and a very good vibe.

  • Bars

    This was an overpriced lounge. It was way too small and it cost guys $40 cover to get in. They don't even tell you how much it is to get in they just give you a Visa Check card there you have to charge your drinks to and pay off at the end of the night. Alsp there was no room to dance! No shorts for guys.

  • Plataforma in Rio

    I think Plataforma is restaurant but we ate somewhere else first, later we went there for watching Samba dancing and Capoeira show (African fighting). Very colorful show, I advice. After the show they called big groups to platform by playing their music. We went there with our music "Uskudara gideriken". It was nice night.

  • my Salvador da Bahia page

    My favourite bar. This is simply a wonderful place to spend the night. It's in a house in Pelourinho, under the atellier of the artist Maria Adair. The pub is her son's and is just about one of the cutest places in town - the crafts made and painted by the artist are everywhere (inside the glass tables, hanging from the ceiling, the menu...)....

  • Traditional Music in Lapa

    There are many old Dance clubs in this part of town It seems to be a quite shady part of town but the taxi drivers will take you right up to the front of the clubs and pick you up there, as well. It's one of the few places in Rio that I found that has a lot of the old music (Samba, ect...). Anything from Casual to more dress up.

  • Bossa Nova "Temple"

    Situated over the restaurant , there are two shows each night, the first- generally a singer alone- on 9,30pm and a second one on 10,30 pm...very good singers -Maria reuza for instance- and good musicians too. Cheap-about 30 Reals plus the drink- but good vibrations... You have to wear a shirt....

  • Copacabana by night

    Isn't that some view?This picture was taken from the top of the "Rio Atlantico" hotel in Rio.While we were in Brazil, I only once went out with Brazilian friends in Ouro Preto and went to a Samba show in Rio. Other than that I have not much experience with the Brazilian nightlife - but I am sure, other VTers have more suggestions!!!

  • Best DJ EVER!!!

    Club Melt is the BEST place to go out dancing in RIO! The only thing about Rio nightlife is that it can be very dangerous. Always go out in large groups and ladies, don't wear your purses or any bling. If you direct attention towards yourself it may not be good attention, and chances are you could get mugged. So when you go out at night.. the last...

    We all went out to some area called Loppa (I think) and hung out eating and drinking. When we were walking to catch a cab, we heard this drum beat coming from a warehouse looking place. We decided to walk in and my jaw just dropped! 12-15 drummers were banging away with this most amazing sound. Everyone was dancing the samba! Drinking, dancing, and...

  • Iracema Beach

    This is a place where the waiters wear tuxedos and the women are as fashionable as any in Rio. Relatively inexpensive to drink there though. They have a disco dance floor, and the ladies willdance with each other if there are not enough men around! Clothes recommended.....jeans and sneakers probably out of place.

    Brazil is a country of passionate people who really know how to party.

    The best time I had in Rio during Carnaval was cruising the strip meeting people and checking out the vendors. You can't go fifty yards without walking into a party with speakers piled up and people dancing in the streets spraying silly string everywhere.You could up and put some music on and within minutes have a crowd of people dancing.The people...
