We have the top three picks for this Tuesday, and below there is a list of bars and lounges that are always a good option.
Dobradinha @ Fosfobox (Copacabana) – Second edition of the Winter Season of Dobradinha! This time it’s dubbed ‘Keeping up with the Kelnershians’ as Igor Kelner will be manning the decks along with Lucas Abdak.
Dobradinha is all about pizza, pop and rock. This is a party that has double doses of fun and enjoyment, where the DJs play the songs you want to hear in order to dance until the sun rises.
There will be double doses of jagermeister plus deals on caipirinhas and heinekens. Tropikaos and IH8Flash will be taking care of the pictures, capturing the best moments of the night.
Expect plenty of pizza, fun and dancing!
Tickets are from R$15-R$40 depending on time of entry and whether you write your name on the wall or not.
Dobradinha – Rua Siqueira Campos, 143, lj 22a – Copacabana

Pirate Crawl (Ipanema) – Not one for the faint-hearted, this Pirate Crawl will be going on a whirlwind tour of many of Ipanema’s liveliest drinking spots.
Things will be kicking off at 9PM at the Mango Tree Hostel, then at 10PM the pirates will be heading to one of Ipanema’s best bars, The Blue Agave, before moving on to a street party.
The pirates will then end the night at Festa Bem Brasil at Barzin Ipanema, another great destination for late-night drinks and music, where there will be 2 for 1 Caipirinhas until 1AM.
Phew! If that wasn’t enough, participants will also learn how to make Caipirinhas, drink free Caipirinhas, have some free shots and even spin the roulette drink wheel.
