- With a nightlife scene dominated by the driving beats of samba and the frenetic electronic sounds of baile funk, those who like their music a little harder can feel somewhat neglected in Rio. If you have a hankering for some dark and dirty rock, take a walk off the beaten track and head for Praca de Bandeiras, where Rio's musical dark side comes to life. Here, the streets are lined with bars playing punk rock, grunge and metal, as black-clad youths roam the streets at night, enjoying the opportunity to mingle with like-minded souls. Head here late on a Saturday night, to see Rio's hidden counter culture being riotously celebrated. - Lucy Bryson
