Explore the Nightlife in the Lapa Neighbourhood

An interesting way to spend your free time in the evenings

The majority of Río de Janeiro's bars, restaurants and clubs are concentrated in Lapa, a neighbourhood that comes alive when everywhere else is sleeping. Here caipirinha and 'chopp' (the name popularly given to draft beer) are the favourites, as well as live music and clubs where you can dance until the early hours of the morning. If you are looking for somewhere with tradition and a great reputation, try Simplesmente on Pascoal Carlos Magno Street. This place is ideal for getting something to eat, whilst having the first few drinks of the night and listening to Brazilian music. After that, nothing beats Casaráo Cultural Dos Arcos on Avenida Mem de Sá, which showed the city's first audio-enabled film at the start of the 20th century. Today it hosts rock and electro concerts, amongst many other musical performances. On the same street you can find Odisséia Theatre, an old warehouse from the 1900s, now converted into a club and concert hall. In Club Six, on Marrecas street, there are six areas for different musical tastes (www.clubsix.com.br). This is the place to be for those looking to visit Río's trendiest nightlife spots.
