The Rio Times, Nightlife Guide, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Nightlife, Bars, Clubs

We have the top three picks for this Monday, and below there is a list of bars and lounges that are always a good option.

Super Sarrada contra o Baixo Astral @ Caipi 373 Bar (Lapa) – This party, one of the newest in Lapa, features free caipirinhas from 11PM-midnight.

There will also be four DJ sets, featuring: Dilson, who will be playing lots of zouk (an exuberant style of popular music combining Caribbean and Western elements and having a fast heavy beat) – Dilson has been DJing for more than twenty years, so expect some nostalgia too: classics that moved the dancefloor from the nineties to the noughties to now.

Fellipe Brandão is up next, the guy who plays the tracks that makes the place pump. This is music that is guaranteed to make you dance. Then there is Zen Eyer, the DJ with charm and charisma, expect more popular tunes to fill the dancefloor.

Finally Arknjo, who is controversial, daring, brave and/or crazy. Arknjo brings new trends, which mix funk, zouk, kizomba, bass, trap and even Lebanese fusion, and makes the dancefloor overheat every week.

The party will be in Lapa’s newest space, #CAIPI373. The house is a cool space to dance, with a great sound system, friendly service and drinks prices which are among the most affordable in Lapa.

The night starts at 9PM and tickets are from R$10.
