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

Arraiá Profano! @ BCo. (Santo Cristo) – Come celebrate the start of “Festas Juninas” (June Parties) in the most profane way.

The “Vaca Profana” (Profane Cow) is known for putting on some of the best and wildest parties in the city and this June-themed will be no different. Party with Transpira, the feminist DJ-performers who are traveling all the way from São Paulo for this special night – plus many more surprises, musical and otherwise.

Tickets are available from R$0-R$10 and the night starts at 11 PM.

Arraiá Profano! – R. Gen. Luís Mendes de Morais, 210 – Santo Cristo

Baile da Lapa @ Antonieta (Lapa) – There’s only one place to go in Lapa for a night filled with carioca funk, and that’s Baile da Lapa at Antonieta in Lapa, Rio’s party neighborhood.

Get down to the best funk, pagode, hip-hop, and pop, courtesy of Anderson America (Baile da Pesada) and DJ Careca (Favela Bass).

The party starts at 10 PM, and tickets are available from R$10-R$30.
