Nice place, not overly cheap but with nice music and good crowd, the only thing is that it's usually very packed, and that night be a bit uncomfortable, don't forget to take your ID otherwise you won't get in.

If you need your fix of cute boys dancing the night away to top 40 - then this is your Thursday night gay party! The drinks are over priced. Show up after 12:30am - it gets started around then.

This is the kind of place that thinks big crews are fashion. They make you stay in a huge and lasting line to get into the club. Apart from that, the place is tiny, crowded and very unconfortable. It is a complete waste of time!

Snooty staff, pricey, really not worth going. The worst of Rio. There are better places to spend your time and money. In such a friendly city this place stands out as a bad representation of what Rio has to offer.

The bar/nightclub is the kinda olace you want to go if you enjoy the " trendy" kind of guys. Age is very ecletic, from 18 to 40+ and it is indeed a gay nightclub. On saturdays they play pop music with a taste, not trash...More
