Club has 4 levels. We stayed on level 3 has they played the music we like ( Maroon 5, Rhianna, 5th Harmony and local music) it was a really good mix. You receive a card when you walk in and when you order drinks they swipe your card. Keep the card, you pay for all charges at the end of... More

Arrogant staff, horrible tasting cocktails which are pretty expensive for Brasil. Floor 2 and 3 complete empty., floor 1 also not full and no atmosphere at all. Lapa is a great area to go out, but I would never recommend anyone to go to this place.

We went there to eat and ate only a fifth of the greasy food. So it is definitely not one the good restaurants in Rio. The music was crazy loud from two places, so it was not a good food-experience. BUT it was a great place to dance and there was some dancing lessons and very good live music. So... More

We did not carry ID, however they allowed us to enter with the show of credit card. We were arrived about midnight on Wednesday, only 3rd floor was very crowded, and it was fun! Several... More

Our group of nighttime revelers did not come to the Lapa 40 Graus to eat. We wanted to sample some of the local drink and, more importantly, listen to some of the finest music that Rio has to offer. And the performance we saw on the upper floor was simply marvelous (see the picture attached, which is sadly rather grainy).... More

This place was nothing special. A bit expensive for snack food. Would probably be better later in the evening

This place is very nice boteco, it is like any other boteco (bar) in Lapa in Rio. If you are hungry you have available lots of appetizers (if you are hungry) and very cold beers and caipirinhas. I would recommend to go there in a boteco hopping night.

This is a three floor bar and live music show house in the heart of the Lapa entertainment district. Due to the recent fire tragedy in S. Brasil, occupancy limits and fire escapes have recently been reviewed at all Rio bars/clubs/show houses and actually enforced, which means arrive early on Friday/Saturday nights if you wish to venture to the third...
