    Wow what a great place! SAMBA SAMBA SAMBA!

    Slight cover charge to get in, but its well worth it. Live music all night with various bands thought the week. The night I attended they had a band with the guy with a trombone, WOW HE WAS GOOD.

    The drink prices are very resonable for an experiance of this caliber. Food was ok but go for music, drinks and dancing.

    The overall vibe is grown and sexy I would say, but very down to earth.

    I took an uber to get there and was dropped off in front.

    It was a good mixture if locals as well as a few foriegn (gringo) guest, but we all partied together nicely.

    Definitely will be back whenever Im in Rio for a nice night on the town in lapa!

    This place is gorgeous from the atmosphere point of view! This is the only place that truly made me dance during the last 10 years! The music and Brazilian dance is something outstanding! The club is multi-level with incredible design which is different in each zone.
    The meal are great!
    This place has some magnetic very light atmosphere where you really relax, getting fun and feel happy!

    Stayed in Rio for 22 days and went out most nights and honestly feel as though I'm qualified enough to say this is by far the best night out Rio has to offer.

    The location is slightly far so you want to go with friends. Split the uber.

    Entry to this amazing club is only 20 rial.

    To go upper levels its an additional 20 but tbh there was a way better atmosphere at the bottom, more dancing, less pretentious people haha

    Drinks are unbelievably cheap here so a good night is ensured. 2 rial for a beer or vodka.

    The DJs play decent music too not just constant samba or funk.

    Highly recommended if in Rio and want the real Brazilian experience

    Visited as part of a bar tour of Lapa.

    Was busy but had a great atmosphere with good samba band and music. Had a simple Caipirinha which wasn’t the cheapest we had in Rio but worth it for the music and atmosphere.

    Bar staff and the band were friendly.

    Even tried our hand at dancing Samba which was a laugh!

    Would recommend visiting if part of a group but if travelling alone may get a bit lost in the crowd!

    I visited that place last Thursday night and they were performing samba live. You can get a beer can for 6 reales and enjoy the music. I loved the place, it’s small but cozy.

    I whole-heartedly recommend this experience (going to Clube Renascença and hearing Samba do Trabalhador). I lived in Brazil for over a year, visit often and am married to a Carioca. For me, I was experiencing for the first time something essential and at the heart of what it is to be Carioca and be in Rio.

    We went with our 8 year old daughter and arrived around 5:30 pm. The entrance and the prices are very reasonable and you'll have opportunities to spend more inside as there are cds, shirts, drums, and crafts for sale (and not to mention super cold beer and pretty good bar food). Our daughter had a great time but it is loud. You might want to bring ear plugs especially for young ones.

    Like others have said this place is very cash-based and I don't believe they take credit cards.

    It lasts until around 10 pm and it's great fun. There's a really sense of community as well that we enjoyed.

    We took an Uber from Leblon to the club and it cost around 50 Reais and on the way back at 9pm we paid a regular taxi about that amount as well (much faster with less traffic).

    Do yourself a favor and check this out.

    We were taken there by Brazilian friends who heard about it from a friend of theirs who lives in Rio. We would not have stayed in the area after dark without the local knowledge, because it looked quite earthy. We travelled to and from our hotel by taxi, and once our friends negotiated a table, we had a fantastic couple of hours there. The band was excellent and there was good food and drink. The atmosphere was very, very relaxed, with mainly full of local people, in couples or groups. Highly recommended.

    First, there aren't any kind of sign mentioning its name. But, if you go there on a Friday ou Saturday, you'll recognize by finding a crowded place, full of nice and fun people in front of it, in the side and in the back of the bar. There are burgers with great ingredients and some snacks. Few options of food, but lots of options to drink. Takes a long time to have your food, but the taste and environment are totally worth it.

    During our weeklong stay in Rio (first time) we enjoyed three times the evening at Beco das Garrafas. The highlight of the place is the live music, each time there was a different band of singers and musicians, all very excellent.
    Food and drinks are ok, do not expect too much.

    The atmosphere is good, the drinks are great but the bar was a bit empty when we went. We later found out the neighborhood is considered dangerous and we were on a bit of lockdown at night. The day time seems to be a bit safer.
