Rio Scenarium

Rua do Lavradio 20, Rio de Janeiro 20230 Brazil
15 reviews

Probably the most photogenic nightspot in Brazil, Rio Scenarium is a sprawling three-story club packed with treasures from the past. Inside a 19th-century mansion, chandeliers, oil paintings, baroque statues, and countless other antiques set the scene for a memorable night of samba. If you've got the moves, you can join other dancers on the main floor fronting the stage, or ...

    Created on a landfill that extends into Guanabara Bay, the long serpentine park remains one of Rio's prime green spaces, and is sprinkled with football fields, grassy lawns, tree-lined paths, outdoor concert halls, monuments, museums and several scenic beaches (which are fine for strolling along, but not clean enough for swimming). Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx, best known for ...

    This aqueduct is the main landmark for the Lapa area of Rio. This area is an amazing street party location often filled with the music of bands and/or drums. There is a trolly line that goes from Santa Teresa down to Lapa and goes right across the top of the aqueduct. You can get off on the stop right before ...

    A few nice restaurants and some interesting old houses. Not that safe, especially at night: use a taxi in and out and no walking after sunset.

    If you ever seen the carnaval on TV, this is probably the place where it was happening. Even though the time to visit it is during the carnaval, its architecture, by the great Oscar Niemeyer, makes it a must stop.

    Pretty cool church. Open for people to look around, even let kids run and play up on the alter. Pretty chill. Some guy was sitting just outside the entrance playing some slow bluesy type songs on his harmonica, and the quiet sound reverberated throughout the church. Grab a seat and take a load off, check out all the cool architecture ...

    The Catedral Metropolitana looks like an ugly concrete cyst from the outside, but on the inside of this cone you experience the sun lighting up the tall columns of stained glass. It's quiet and cool inside, making it a great way to escape the bustle and heat outside.

    One of the oldest Churches in Rio, the Sao Bento Mosteiro was completed in 1641, and the front facade was added in 1669. The Benedictines who built this wonderful Church were one of the first to settle in Rio. While the exterior is almost non-descript, the inside of the Church is fantastico! They don't allow picture taking with flash or ...

    The place is not comfortable or pretty, but they do get big names in Brazilian music, pack it with 5k partiers and force the band to perform longer than their usual. So in this sense, it is a great place to hear live music, if you know the bands. So check the line up on their site.
