  • Rio's hardcore partiers don't get going until way past midnight, and after-hours bars and clubs in Rio are often the scene of the city's liveliest nightlife action. While things are surprisingly quiet after hours in Rio during the working week, at weekends and holidays you should prepare yourself for a very long night.

    The number one spot for any hedonist looking for after hours bars and clubs should be Lapa, where the weekend street party is the hub for a host of nightlife activity, from street samba to hip hop clubs. Lapa on a Friday night really doesn't hit its stride until around 1-2am, with street sellers on hand to perk up flagging revelers witn any number of alcoholic concoctions.

    For something a little less hectic, the beachside bars of Copacabana and Ipanema are great spots to shoot the breeze over a beer as the sun rises, while those based up in Santa Teresa will find that Simplesmente is open until late/early (depending on your point of view) virtually every night of the week.
