We went to Rio Scenarium on a Tuesday night and had a great time. No lineup and the samba band was awesome. The decor is quite unique, took lots of pictures.

The food is good. Music is also good. There is always a good show on the stage happening. Make a reservation and arrive there early to avoid lines. I enjoyed a lot and I’ve been there twice.

Fun night. Were in luck to get a table close to the dance floor. The dancefloor was packed with funloving people. Worth walking through the building. Decor is unique.

Brought by friends to this club that serves food, drinks, and music in a decor reminiscent of the district’s history as used furnishings district. We arrived early, around 8 PM, and had to leave much too soon, about 10:15 PM, just as the place started...More

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together

region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that
