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.
Samba das Laranjeiras c/ Samba do Xoxó (Laranjeiras) – From the producers of traditional Samba dos Guimarães, Samba and Feijoada da Casa Rosa, Sambinha do Corcovado, Samba da Lagoa, Rio’s newest roda de samba is born.
Under the blessing of Mother Nature, in the feet of the jungle, dogs, canaries, and other curiosities join along with Samba do Xoxó to perform the most beautiful verses of samba.
Rio Craft Beer Festival 2018 (Leblon) – Today from 2PM – 10PM, the Rio Craft Beer Festival makes its return with more than 45 artisan beer exhibitors, a wide variety of culinary options, music and special attractions.
The event was launched in 2015, with an aim by Rio’s brewers to create something new, to change the scenery of the city’s festivals and bring local beer producers closer to their consumers.
Located on the Lagoa, this three-day festival is bound to attract the young, hip and cool Cariocas.
Bossa Nova no Oscar (Leblon) – Tonight, the Oscar bar, in Leblon, hosts the Dudu Oliveira Trio, at 6:30 PM.
Formed by Dudu Oliveira (flute/sax), Dudu Viana (keyboard) and Renato Endrigo (drums), the trio makes some of the best of bossa, finely interpreted with instrumentals and hints of Brazilian regional elements.
This chic restaurant on the Rio’s highest-end Rua Dias Ferreira will be a great place for a sophisticated and charming evening.
