Rio De Janeiro


Black Bar

After a dinner in Leblon, walk over to Black Bar. There’s a DJ, dancing, and an easy vibe in the outdoor lounge. It’s a perfect place to go with a friend, but chill enough to go alone.

Bar Astor

This one’s an overachiever: corner resident of a prestigious crossroads, 130-year-old bar from a Tennessee saloon, and overlooks Arpoador Beach. Plus, the food is as good as the people-watching.

Baretto- Londra

Inside the Fasano Hotel, Londra is a mix of British punk and Italian chic. This is a legitimate A-lister scene and one of the few places in the city that requires dressing up. Only go Thursday through Saturday, and only after 11pm, which is still on the early side for Rio.


Once controlled by gangs, and so dodgy the police wouldn’t even patrol the streets, this large favela has become one of Rio’s most exciting nightlife areas, famous for its party spots, like Casa Alto Vidigal. They host weekly events that last until the early morning hours.
