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.

Siba Convida Marcelo Jeneci @ Teatro Ipanema (Ipanema) – After a few years on the road touring his last album ‘Avanti,’ Siba will present a show featuring music from throughout his career.

The show will see Siba’s voice and guitar complement the drums and keyboards of Antonio Loureiro. In this special performance, a commemoration of the fifty years of the Teatro Ipanema, Siba welcomes the guest Marcelo Jeneci.

Jeneci was nominated for a Latin Grammy for ‘Best Album of Brazilian Popular Music of 2014.’ In the same year, he received the prize of the Paulista Association of Art Critics (APCA), in the category ‘Best Composer.’ He has written songs in partnership with Arnaldo Antunes, Zé Miguel Wisnik and Luiz Tatit.

Tickets cost between R$10 – R$20 and the night begins at 8:45PM.
