Lapa is a crazy good time. Extremely busy streets filled with people of all ages. Plenty of places to club, eat and drink. Just be careful. The busyness allows for allow of pickpockets to have a field day. But it is worth the small risk.

In the same neigborhood of Rio Scenarium, you find also this Disco. For me is a must to try, especially for younger generation (20-25) is a really nice place to go and dance. Generally they also play international music and the Disco has 3 floors.
