Great entertainment, it's a museum and a samba club. It has three floors and even an elevator going up and down between them. Entrance fee of 50 Reais.

Absolutely amazing! Probably the most best in Brazil. Three floors of an old Brazilian townhouse beautifully decorated with oddities. Go only if to see the club. The music is absolutely superb. All the locals are here including families (with small children). Don't miss this in...More

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
