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

DNA Social Club @ Barzin Rio (Ipanema) – The weekend doesn’t end until this party does. Today they are asking people to bring along 1KG of non-perishable food to donate to the victims of the floods in Vidigal.

From 9PM onwards their second floor lounge will open up for some deep house to get guests in the mood for the evening. DJ Linnê Aline Bernardes will be providing the tunes on the second floor. Then from 11PM onwards, the party will continue to the third floor, a totally covered and air conditioned environment, where DJ Luca Tessadrelli, DJ Filippe Figueiredo and DJ Afonso Feijó will be spinning the best tunes until dawn. This week they have a special ‘buy early’ drinks offer, where if you buy a drink you get another free DNA drink. This offer runs until 12:30 AM.

Entrance is between R$20-R$60 and doors open at 9PM.
