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.

Aos Novos Compositores @ Beco do Rato (Lapa) – This cultural project for new composers is an evening where sambistas can present previously unpublished work of their own. This is an exciting evening of live music from some of the best young samba composers in the city.

It takes place twice per month, always on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. And the event aims to support the local samba music scene by showing works by composers who are not (yet) big samba stars.

The event is free entry and it usually begins at 8PM.

Aos Novos Compositores – Rua Joaquim Silva – Lapa
