Really packed. Although it was the Olympics.. Prepare to fight the crowd to get a drink. At around 1am, a swarm of hookers descended upon the crowd. They obviously were the hottest women you've seen in your life. Answering each question in Portuguese, she finally gave up and broke out in perfect English: I'm just joking, I'll be right back....

Emporio is one of the las bars to close in Rio, so it's a must if you want stay until morning drinking with the crazy crowd from locals and many foreigners. Easy to find dealers selling goodies after hours.

Out of the 7 nights we spent in Rio, 5 were ended in the Emporio 37 club. Small club but great atmosphere, especially when Belgians are around. They also serve Belgian beers.

It's a bar where people gather mostly outside, occupying most of the street in front of it. Best thing about this place is the music. They play rock from different time periods, all very good. Don't expect good service, as they seem to be in a permanent bad mood, like they're doing you a favour. If you're there during the... More

Went there late on a Friday night with some friends and found a place a bit empty. To our surprise it was only getting started though. By midnight the place was packed with people dancing to 90s music and the party was spilling out to the street. Haven't tried any of the food but the beer was cheap and chilled... More

OK so we didn't stop for a meal here, but the pizzas looked excellent. It is a really buzzing bar on a Friday/Saturday night, full of weirdos and unbelievably 80's English music. It was like being back at a uni disco for me, only with better caipirinhas...

Went here years ago and stumbled across it again this time round. Open very late and just a cool relaxed atmosphere. Great drinks and people. The music is 90's rock and the party spills onto the street :)

This place recently made my 15 Favorite Bars in the World list (you can see it here: http://highsocietyhobo.com/2014/09/28/15-favorite-bars-worldwide/). My friends and I came here almost every night for over a week. The bar has a rustic and simple feel, with people spilling out onto the street. The soundtrack is generally 90s rock, which is awesome. Cheap drinks/food and a great... More

I had fun on a Tuesday having left that house at mid-night and Brazil had just lost 7-1 to Germany in the semi-finals of the World Cup 2014...in Brazil. Good party, reminded me of my college days, though bar was a little sparse on the racks without choice booze. Definitely your smash and grab...get her drunk and go! But it... More
