Sunday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Duo is once again the best place to wind down your weekend activities. The party starts early (at 5PM), but goes until 5AM and is fueled by some of the most acclaimed DJs of the electronic scene in Rio.
Duo has been holding it down on Sundays for the past few years, with a faithful, mixed crowd and a host of guest DJs over the years. Held at the ever popular 00 (Zero Zero), situated in the beautiful neighborhood of Gàvea. The beautiful space hosts and outdoor patio deck, where the party usually warms up with plenty of seating to eat, drink and socialize. Once the party starts jumping, the inside dance floor opens up and welcomes guests with open arms. The indoor space boasts an amazing sound system and killer lighting.
