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.

The Glow Party! (Copacabana) – This party, brought to you by Rio Sessions, guarantees a great Monday night out.

If you’re looking for an upscale, big club experience, this seems to be the ticket. The club will be immersed in black light and they will be handing out everything from glow paint to glow bracelets and much more.

There will be free caipirinhas until midnight, random tequila shots, promotions on beers and vodka energy drinks.

DJ Guga Fernandes will be spinning a blend of house, hiphop and reggaeton, while DJ Dluccio will play world music, pop, trap and deep house.

Two DJs, two floors, and only one block away from Copacabana beach.

Glow Party! @ New Mariuzinn – Avenida Nossa Senhora de Copacabana, 435 – Copacabana

Things will get started at around 11PM and ticket prices range from R$40-R$60 – for more information, be sure to check the event page.

Choro da Glória no CCBB (Centro) – How about a late afternoon spent in Rio’s bustling centre with the company of chorinho (or choro, a traditional musical genre of Brazil which is similar to samba) beer and good food?

The Cena Brasil International Festival arrives for its 2018 edition and is bringing food trucks, Brazilian music, plus many surreal and artistic attractions, including works for sale.

Plus on Monday, Choro da Glória will be performing especially for the festival. It’s free and it starts at around 6PM.

Aniversário do Jimmy/48 anos e Chiliburger (Tijuca) – Burgertopia is one of Rio’s best burger joints, and for Monday and Tuesday evening they’re throwing a special birthday party for their ‘favorite ogre’ and star chef, Jimmy.

Monday, June 11th, marks his 48th birthday and everyone at Burgertopia will be drinking Heinekens and waiting for people to go there and give Jimmy a hug or bring him a present.

In addition to the Ogre’s party, they will also be premiering the ‘CHILIBURGER Ogrostronomia’ as a special of the week, which will be on the menu until the 18th.

A great excuse to grab one of Rio’s finest burgers and share a beer with one of its big personalities.
