Wednesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – What better way to celebrate the peak of the week than with a few drinks and music to accompany a meal at Mekong in Leblon. The Asian fusion restaurant and bar has played host to a variety of events over the years and has earned a reputation as a happy hour or early evening starting point for an eventful night on the town.
The outdoor space rests close to the main strip of Leblon and serves up a multitude of delicious appetizers, entrées and drinks, as the menu offers regional dishes from Thailand, Indonesia, Malasia and more. Enjoy Wednesdays with musical picks from DJ Mary Byker and weekly local and out of town guests.
