Lapa takes an important part of Rio's history. Over the years the area was abandoned and new modern buildings started to surround it until a few years ago when it was finally rediscovered. A great work of restoration is recovering the old Bohemian area of Rio with its original atmosphere. We present Lapa as the best area for local music and dance. You'll see mostly locals meeting in Lapa to celebrate local culture. It's a great encounter to many rich Brazilian sounds, some already known as "bossa nova", "chorinho", "forro", "samba de raiz", etc


After pick up at 8pm, you'll be taken to the new bohemian neighborhood of Rio, Lapa, where I park my car, and we walk to one of the clubs of the area that has live music. It can also be a restaurant with dining options but most locals use those places for snack and drinks.
Around 11:30PM we start getting ready to leave.
