Nightlife in Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro is a fabulous city. Christ the Redeemer standing atop a hill watching over you, the brooding favelas, the colorful parades, the majestic churches, the sambas, and a strong Portuguese influence can be quite overwhelming. But what draws tourists to this charming city is the fabulous nightlife when hipsters let their hair down and take to the dance floor.
Nightlife in Rio is exciting and exhilarating. Some of the best places to indulge in some fun are the Leblon, Gavea, Ipanema and the Copacabana neighborhoods, which are located in the affluent Lower Zona Sul.
