If you’re in for dancing and clubbing, nightclubs are for you. These clubs have entrance fees and do not let people in who are not dressed accordingly. This means that though the thought of wearing slippers may appeal to you, you better not if you wish to be allowed entrance to Rio’s nightclubs. Also, clubs are quite expensive, so if ever you’re on a tight budget, refrain from ordering imported drinks. You don’t want to be surprised when you leave the Club and they ask for the payment.

Live music is also a favorite in Rio. It is where bands play the samba and let the people enjoy it by dancing on the dance floor. Samba clubs are everywhere in Rio. Gafieiras are Rio’s samba halls, which you shouldn’t miss. Carioca da Gema is one of the popular live music clubs in Rio, where they are more lenient on the dress code. Here, you can wear something casual.

Bars are also abundant in Rio. You have a lot of choices from those near the beach to those in the streets of Rio. Actually, cariocas drink beer anywhere that is why bars are all over the place. 

Usually, bars and cafes are the places people go to before going to a nightclub to party. If you come to Rio to bond with friends over bottles of beer, then bars and cafes are the places to go. If budget is an issue, you and your friends could share big bottles of beer. After all, cariocas do it all the time!

Then there are street parties where everybody is welcome because it is outside and it’s free. They say the best things are free, and street parties are free and among the best. Street vendors are the ones who provide the beer for anyone who needs it. Lapa is the place to be when you want to experience Rio’s street party because it is one of the most popular places in Rio. It also serves as avenue for all people to come together from all walks of life. It could get a little crowded so it is advised to leave valuables like cameras and wallets at your hotel room. This way, you won’t be a victim of robbery and you get to minimize your spending without your wallet. The only downer for these kinds of parties is the rain. When the rain pours, there are no parties.
