  • If you want to mingle with the Brazilian 'gente bonita'(beautiful people), you'll want to make upscale Rio de Janeiro bars and clubs your first port of call.

    Whether you want to impress a date, check out the beautiful Brazilian girls and boys at play or just sip cocktails in sophisticated surroundings, Rio's upscale bars will ensure that you do it in style.

    The bulk of Rio's plush bars and clubs are concentrated in the well-heeled neighborhoods of Ipanema, Leblon and Barra da Tijuca, although Pergula, the chic poolside bar-restaurant at Copacabana Palace, is well worth a visit too.

    In fact, some of Rio's most luxurious bars can be found within the city's five-star hotels - Londra at Fasano Rio and Bar D'Hotel at Marina All Suites being two good cases in point.

    If you want to dance, Rio's upscale bars and nightclubs won't disappoint, with Nuth, in Barra da Tijuca, and Baronetti in Ipanema being two popular options among the city's rich elite.
    A word to the wise, you'll need to dress to impress if you want to make it past the doorstaff at these seriously swanky joints. Absolutely no shorts and flip flops. And be warned - prices are steep even by Western standards.
