This place, along with the Little Club next door, are wonderful places for Brazilian jazz. The other reviews here capture the highlights. Short version is that you go for the music, as that's why everyone else goes there. You aren't going to get great food...More

When you’re in Rio, you’re going to want an evening of bossa nova, so you would be wise to visit the Little Club of Beco das Garrafas. This translates to “Alley of Bottles” and is the birthplace of this musical style. The entertainment here is...More

I go here many times without knowing who is singing. Almost never disappointed. I am afan of Amanda Bravo, who usually sings on Fridays. Check out the site. Limited menu of snacks and drinks. But music is the attraction! And bossa nova is it’s mainstay.

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
