This evening is your chance to delve into the nightlife that makes the city so famous. There is no other place in Rio that embodies the energy of Brazilian music (or its people) more than the Lapa district, home to the city’s most vibrant nightlife. Once the sun goes down, this normally quiet neighborhood turns into a bustling enclave full of restaurants, nightclubs and bars. The streets fill with cariocas and gringos alike, all flocking to this 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 Brazilian music scene has to offer. On the Rio Nightlife Tour, you will head right to the heart of the action where local guides will accompany you to one of the best clubs in Lapa, Rio Scenarium, a stunning venue where the locals come to listen to traditional Brazilian jazz, samba and just about everything else.
