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) – DNA Social Club is the new club for Sundays at Barzin. The weekend doesn’t end until this event does. From 9PM onwards their second floor lounge will open up where you can enjoy a great drink while listening to some deep house to get you into the mood for the evening. DJ Rômulo Pereira 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 Beto Artista, DJ Daniel Garrido, DJ Lucas Dutra, DJ Luca Tessadrelli, 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 midnight. Entrance is between R$20-R$60 and doors open at 9PM.
