Great nightclub. Has three locations that play Samba, pop and other music. The service is prompt and the food is also tasty. Very lively on a Friday and Saturday night.

Rio Scenarium is a can-not-miss Rio de Janeiro attraction. It´s a mixture of restaurant, bar, antique store, and night club. Always presenting live Brazilian bands that will take you to regions of the country. Easy to make friends! Guaranteed fun!

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
