The Basics

The varied soundtrack isn’t the only showstopper at Rio Scenarium. The stylish 3-floor venue— known for its eclectic interior design and trove of vintage furnishings—is also one of the most photogenic spots in town. A collection of 10,000 antiques are on display, allowing you to dance beneath antique bicycles and colorful parasols, tuck into tapas from original art-deco furniture, and sip caipirinhas by cabinets of antique dolls, clocks, and radios.

Many bar-hopping and nightlife tours of the city include a stop at this legendary venue. If you prefer to linger, consider combining a night of live music at the bar with dinner at a local restaurant. Choose a tour with included hotel pickup and drop-off for a hassle-free night out.

My husband and I had a very nice time with our guide, Michael. He and a driver picked us up in a comfortable car and dropped us off very close to the bar. Michael told us about the history of the bar, we sat and had food and drinks with him, and then he let us dance to the samba band as long as we wanted to. When we were ready to go, we were picked up and dropped off at the hotel. It was an easy and safe way to experience this very cool bar.
