Nigh Life Experience in Lapa

"Samba and fun at Lapa"

Rio is world famous for its music and Lapa is one of the city’s most bohemian districts. Famous for the variety of bars, restaurants, concert places and crowded streets (especially on weekends and holydays), Lapa is always a place to party! Our representative will pick you up at your hotel and take you to feel the streets atmosphere. Then he will take you to Rio Scenarium samba club, a “must see” at Rio’s local night scene (from Tuesday to Saturday).

* Whenever Rio Scenarium is closed, we will take you to another great place at Lapa: Carioca da Gema Club.
