Went on a Friday night (R$45/person). Lacked atmosphere compared with many of the alternative bars in Lapa district. Mainly tourists and groups. Only live musician was a guitarist on ground floor (Samba area). Next floor was disco area, but no one dancing.

For me, if you wanna see Rio's beauty and glamour you don't go to Copacabana. You go to Rio Scenarium and the area around it. The place itself has grown larger over the years as it acquired adjacent rooms and incorporated then into the concept...More

Downside is cover charge, but it did keep the young drunks out. Perfect place to enjoy Rio nightlife. Live music. Great dancing, but not so loud that we couldn’t have a conversation. Hip, quirky vibe.

There was no atmosphere, the places on Av. Mem de Sa are much more fun. Entry fee of 50 br was not worth it.

Unless you absolutely LOVE samba do not waste your time or money going here. 45reel entry per person is a total rip off on top of expensive drinks inside and mediocre music. Maybe we're too young for this place(at 30) or dont love samba but...More

We were expecting to see younger people there. Second floor earlier in the night was playing 80s pop and rock song and it was amazing. But later on the switch to funk and it was very disappoint.

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
the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that
