“If you want to party, you need to go to Lapa , a bohemian neighborhood in Rio. It is worth visiting for a taste of Brazilian night life. Rio Scenarium is a classic, you will be amazed by the decor, the music and the size of this place. A lot of ambientes to choose from. There is another place similar, called "Carioca da Gema " very nice too, located Avenida Mem de sa, 79. But, if i have to choose one I would go to Rio Scenarium. ”
