Live music

Rio is a party city and Lapa is its hotspot! This is the meeting of all "tribes" in all ages. In Lapa we find all sorts of music: samba, forró, reggae, rock'n roll, bossa nova, jazz, funk, MPB and so on, specially on Fridays and Saturdays. In 4-5h tour we have 3 main options:
- experience a local nightclub with live samba, choro and MPB music, and watch locals dance (or join them) such as Rio Scenarium or Carioca da Gema, in Lapa;
- go to a piano bar and listen to live Bossa Nova music, in Ipanema, where Vinícius de Moraes lived;
- or go to a touristic folkloric show, named "Plataforma" or "Ginga Tropical", and watch different rhythms and cultural manifestations throughout Brazil, including a lot of samba.
We have options for all days of the week. On Fridays and Saturdays real nightlife in Lapa "starts" at midnight!
