About
Formed by the Bottle's nightclubs Bar and Little Club , the the Lane is back on the music scene of the Marvelous City ! The the Lane was in the 50s and 60s, the meeting place of young Brazilian musicians. Among instrumentalists , we can highlight Sergio Mendes , Luis Carlos Vineyards , Baden Powell , Durval Ferreira, Tiao Neto , Milton Banana, Manuel Guzman, Bebeto , Mauricio Einhorn , Dom Um Romao , Airto Moreira , Wilson das Neves , Chico Batera . Among the singers : Dolores Duran , Elis Regina, Johnny Alf , Sylvia Telles , Jorge Ben , Marisa Gata Mansa , Doris Monteiro, Claudette Soares, Alaide Costa , Pery Ribeiro, Leny Andrade and Simonal . It was also the birthplace pockets shows the double Miele & Boscoli . With so many musicians meeting and exchanging experiences daily, began to emerge in the Lane , an instrumental genre derived from Bossa Nova, which was a revolution in progress within our instrumental music. In this new style, gave the name of Samba -Jazz . And there were born the Tamba Trio groups , 3D Trio, Sambalanco Trio, The Cats , Meirelles and the Copa 5, Sergio Mendes and Bossa Rio Sextet , Bossa Tres , Jongo Trio, Trio Rio 65 , Sambossa 5, Milton Banana Trio, among dozens of others . After more than 30 years off, Amanda Bravo , Sergio De Martino and Mauricio De Martino decided to join forces and bring back the music to the Bottle 's Bar . And on December 31, 2013 , with a large party of New Year's Eve , the bar was reopened and worked daily for 6 months , presenting shows with various artists. Heineken brewery in September 2014 , believes in the potential of the place and its cultural and historical importance , and invests in the reform of the two clubs , Bottle 's Bar and Little Club , promoting Heineken the Lane event, with established artists and new names Brazilian music scene , in addition to international attraction Nouvelle Vague . As of October 2014, the musical program follows with varying styles and designs , including theme parties and programming with DJ 's. Under the artistic direction of Amanda Bravo , we will offer the best quality music to suit all tastes , but having bossa nova and samba -jazz the flagship of the Lane , as tradition dictates .

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.

Good pub with very good music
Feb. 2020
During our weeklong stay in Rio (first time) we enjoyed three times the evening at Beco das Garrafas. The highlight of the place is the live music, each time there was a different band of singers and musicians, all very excellent.
Food and drinks are ok, do not expect too much.

A very average experience
Jan. 2020
I was expecting Rio to be a Mecca of Bossa Nova, instead there's this touristy and overpriced jazz club experience with jaded jazz musician performances. If you want to hear pretty great Bossa Nova played with a real Brazilian vibe, authenticity, passion and skill I recommend the Jabaquara beach in Paraty. You have musicians cycling through the bars and guesthouses and you're just paying for the food and drinks.

Previous post said "didn't even go in". If he had gone in he would've had a blast. Great tunes all night. It was packed. I assume it's even busier on weekends.

Didn’t even go in!
Oct. 2019 • Friends
The place smelled like dust and mold. It was just awful. So we never even went in. Fortunately we could look inside before we paid to go and sit there... would have been a big waste of money...

Intimate Bossa Nova. Club
Dec. 2018 • Couples
What a great experience in Copacabana. Listen to good music performed by local professional musicians, mixing it up with jazz to a Bossa Nova beat. Small, so you feel at one with the musicians. A hidden highlight.

Genuine Rio experience away from tourist hype
Nov. 2018 • Couples
Can't praise this club enough. Tucked away in a side alley and with a small capacity, it provides the audience with high class music in an authentic setting. Recognised as one of the homes of Bossa Nova, this knocks any Samba night clubs full of tourists and coach parties into a cocked hat.
Reasonable cover charge (30 Reals), drinks are priced reasonably and service, considering there is live music in a small club, is pretty good. There is some food but I would eat before you get there (Quick Galetos across the road?). Entry time is always a bit of a gamble, given the limited capacity, but nothing really starts until 9.30 onwards. One of the highlights of a splendid holiday.

I really like the Beco das Garrafas! I like to go and take whatever there is on, it is good music and wonderful atmosfere! No fuss, shorts and havaianas would be fine, the audience participate and the drinks and service are just fine!
