Ranked by the Guardian newspaper as one of the ten best bars in the world. What is certain is that it is one of the most famous historical in Rio. Decorated with antiques, scheduled sessions with Samba mixed with intrumental jazz and Brazilian music Thursday through Sunday. A must know.
Housed in a 19th century building. Armour, dolls, clocks, colonial furniture: the magic of the place lies in its decoration and the amazing live music. The boss has amassed thousands of antiques, some of which he rents for movies. Dance groups and samba, forró or choro, bar in the first floor and ground floor, a more welcoming environment in the second, plus the adjoining room where dance lovers can enjoy Musica Popular brasileira (MPB). Not to be missed.
Rio Scenarium, part nightclub and part antique shop, is a magical labyrinth antique store and eccentrically decorated with all sort of items, from vintage cars to armors. But above all it is a good place to listen samba, forró, choro and premium MPB live.
