DuoSunday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Duo is once again closing out the weekend in Rio. The twelve-hour party starts early at 5PM with some of the best DJs in Rio’s electronic scene keeping it going until dawn.

Duo is held weekly at the popular 00 (Zero Zero), in Rio’s neighborhood of Gàvea. The chic venue features an outdoor patio deck and an inside dance floor.
