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.

Samba Tá com Tempo?! (Centro) – Bar do Nanam at Beco das Artes is one of the most exciting nightlife options at the moment. For those who haven’t been there it is an entire street that in the evening is brought to life by musical performance, dancing and a spirit of fun. This Tuesday, Bar do Nanam, one of the most faithful establishments of the street, will be hosting an evening of Samba. ‘A heavyweight team meets through the samba verve, to spread the joy of sounds and encounters.’ is roughly how they describe themselves.

Samba Tá com Tempo?! is an evening where new and seasoned samba musicians come to revel in the spirit of the music for its own sake. Expect plenty of spontaneity, participation and joie de vivre. The location can be hard to find if it’s your first time, yet the host gives helpful directions: Bar do Nanam ‘near the Tiradentes square, in the Rua Imperatriz Leopoldina, on the corner with Luís de Camões.’ However, they stress, ‘If you are curious, just come!’

Edgar Duvivier @ Manouche Club (Jardim Botanico) – The Mojonight on Tuesday night at the new Manouche Club presents Edgar Duvivier this Tuesday for what is sure to be an evening of sophisticated and chilled music.

The clarinetist and saxophonist Edgar Duvivier mixes music from various genres, such as samba, choro, jazz, MPB, blues and rock, – songs that he admires and is inspired by – and presents a repertoire of songs from different eras and places. They are songs that mark both the place of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the classic eras of Brazilian music, songs that we know from movies, dances, shows, parties, but presented anew.

Tickets are available at the venue, and the night starts at 9PM.
