Rio by Night, Brazil

Once the sun goes down, this normally quiet neighbourhood turns into a bustling and vibrant area full of restaurants, nightclubs and bars. The streets fill with cariocas and visitors alike, who flock to this Rio nightlife Mecca with one thing in mind, fun!

From traditional northeastern forró, to Rio’s own samba, to reggae from Bahia, visitors will enjoy the best that the Rio music scene has to offer.

You are taken to the heart of the action where your local guide will accompany you to one of the best clubs in Lapa, Rio Scenarium an unusual bar, a mix between an antique shop and an auction room, where the locals come to listen to traditional Brazilian jazz and samba.
