We have the top three picks for this Tuesday, and below there is a list of bars and lounges that are always a good option.
Série Sala Jazz @ Sala Cecília Meireles (Lapa) – Tonight, ‘O Trio Innova’ offers a musical evening of tango and Argentinian sounds in a repertoire focused mainly on the composer Astor Piazzolla.
Presented as part of the ‘Série Sala Jazz’ program, O Trio Innova are: David Zambon, tuba; Jean-Marc Fabiano, accordian; Patrick Zygmanowski, piano.
The music starts at 8PM and this should be an exciting evening for any jazz and tango lovers out there.

Terça Rock na Lapa @ La Carmelita (Lapa) – An experimental night created from the brains of three rock lovers, who bring together electronic, indie, grunge, hard rock and very experimental sounds, with the idea to gather people together who enjoy hearing music that isn’t often heard on a night out.
Currently on their playlists are Basement Jaxx, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Bjork, Cake, Rage Against the Machine, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Massive Attack, The Breeders among other things suggested on the event wall.
The Terça Rock promotion is as follows: you get a third extra free on top of what you consume. For example, if you drink two beers, you get one free. You eat two slices of pizza and you get another on the house. This applies to pizza, chopp, wine, soft drinks, caipirinhas, and pretty much everything!
Terça Rock na Lapa – Rua do Rezende, 14 – Lapa
