The hot clubs in Rio de Janeiro, usually frequented by Rio¹s elite (and beautiful people) , whether they are 18 or 35 years old are all rated as "Clubs to see and be seen" as they are clubs where everybody goes well dressed and dancing is actually not the main goal of the night.
Most of the Cariocas ("locals") who goes to these clubs are single - and that is why they go for the clubs! Hoping not to be single for the rest of the night!

Introducing Rio's nightlife...

Rio de janeiro nightlife: AN OVERVIEW.

What you fell like doing tonight? This is the most asked question among the “cariocas”. Everybody goes out every night!

Usually, people go to bars around 10pm- 11pm to have some drinks (caipirinhas, beers..) as a warm up activity. Getting prepared to the Rio night is VERY helpful in the country with such variety of rhythm that you are probably not used to. And guess what? They are great!!!! I’m sure you will be surprised with the music and the way that the natives dance…
Later at around 1 am is the time to head to the club

Most of the best clubs in Rio are located in the south zone (Zona Sul), which includes mainly Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon. Barra has some really nice clubs too. (Barra is another part of the city).
Each of these neighborhoods has a very particular style of clubs. Ipanema night is way different from Leblon’s night clubs, which are totally different from Copacabana night life.
As you browse on this blog you will find all the best clubs listed, but by now let’s just understand them.
Most of them work with a “ticket” system which means that when you get into the clubs and pubs, they’ll give you a paper and you have to keep it till you leave. Every time you get a drink, instead of paying each drink they will mark on your paper what you have order and when you leave you pay everything all together.
Don’t even THINK of loosing this paper! The clubs will charge you around R$200 ( if this come to happen.
The clubs starts to get empty around 5 to 6 am, and the night isn’t finished!
Some times there are some very nice ‘after parties” that goes till 10am! Then, you should get some sleep to enjoy the beach…
