In the heart of Lapa, the Cultural Cafe Sacrilege is a completely different place. Reference by the wealth of information and a remarkable creativity. Identity is the joke of the 'sacred' with bohemian Rio. The result could only be an interactive and house full of stories to tell. The house has the astral da Lapa. Sacrilege is not to know!

Our Uber driver didn't know where Scenarium (?) was and dropped us off on a corner. We heard music coming from inside Sacrilege and decided to just go for it. We were three women, arrived about 9 PM, were seated upstairs overlooking the dance floor...More

These guys definitely skimmed my credit card and stole about 1000USD. It's still a fun place to go but either pay by cash or be very careful covering your pin. I went once and had my cat skimmed a few days later (quite common) I...More

Lots of locals having a great time dancing to live samba bands. Really cool interior and a very happy care free vibe.

This more of a live music, eating and drinking place rather than an attraction. Shows are not on every night but you could find out when they are on and book a table through your hotel. There are usually 2 groups playing Samba and Bossa...More

Great music first of all! The band consisted of 9 (I think) young guys with cool attitude and lots of joy, playing a wide range of samba. I am no expert in this genre, but from the reaction of the crowd it seemed like some...More
