  • Forget the posing palaces of Ipanema, Leblon and Barra da Tijuca. If you want to discover the real nightlife heart of Rio, you'll need to head to the bars and clubs of Centro.

    Our number one pick, the legendary Lapa street party, is a caipirinha-fuelled mix of locals and tourists that gets absolutely packed on Friday nights, as tipsy revellers wobble from bar to bar, stopping to chat, flirt and dance.

    Meanwhile, the neighborhood's samba clubs, such as Carioca da Gema, Scenarium and Trapiche Gamboa are widely considered to be among the best in the city.

    If samba isn't your thing, nightlife in Centro, Rio de Janeiro has plenty of other options to float your musical boat, from hip hop and electro at Club Six to rock at Praca do Bandeira.

    The bars and clubs of Centro, Rio de Janeiro are so abundant that you could head here every night of the week during your holiday and never visit the same place twice. Here's our pick of the best.
