I go here many times without knowing who is singing. Almost never disappointed. I am afan of Amanda Bravo, who usually sings on Fridays. Check out the site. Limited menu of snacks and drinks. But music is the attraction! And bossa nova is it’s mainstay.

We heard about Beco das Garrafas from a friend who lives in Rio. There are actually two separate bars with stages at the same location. So you can go to one and then to the other. The quality of the performers were fantastic and both...More

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
