RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – High in the hills of Santa Teresa, event space The Mansion will host a party for the neighborhood to enjoy the best of Carnival. With spectacular views of the city from a renovated colonial home in Rio’s most bohemian area, the twelve-hour ‘Cadê Teresa’ party will take place on Saturday, February 25th.
Beginning at 5PM and lasting until 5AM the following morning, the party promises live music and DJs, drinks promotions and food. With live music provided by the Santa Clara Samba Band and a performance from celebrated Carnival bloco ‘Ceú na Terra’, plus acts like Zerodoque and DJs, the party promises to be non-stop.
“Samba is the main musical style,” explains Maria Marta Mendonça, the event’s publicist. “But it is a very eclectic party and we will have several music genres. It is already the eighth edition of the party Cadê Teresa and is one of the most known and traditional festivities of the Rio de Janeiro Carnival.”
Mendonça says that the venue adds an extra air of glamour to the event. “Santa Teresa is one of the most visited neighborhoods during Carnival, and with the event venue in The Mansion you get an incredible view of this.”
To entice visitors to revel throughout the night, The Mansion will offer selected beverage promotions during the party, including mixed vodka drinks, beers and cachaça. Guests will also be able to sustain themselves with food from chef Marcelo Gazzarini, who will offer homemade burgers plus sweet, savory and vegan tapioca options for visitors.
Tickets cost R$70 for women and R$90 for men, and can be purchased online.
