Tuesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Bem Brasil once more hosts its growing weekly Tuesday night party at the famous 00 club in Gávea. Dedicated to the city’s national and international travelers, the hostels seem to empty out as guests swarm to the club for the early caipirinha giveaway and to soak up the atmosphere.
The beautiful outside deck is a boon in the heat, littered with seating and lounging spots, while inside expect to hear everything from samba to hip hop and house music from DJ Andrew Gracie. Highly recommended for anyone looking for some late-night partying early on in the week.
