  • At first glance, Ipanema nightlife can seem a little stuffy and formal, but scratch the surface and you will find Ipanema bars and clubs that cater for every type of visitor.

    A good place to begin is the beachfront, where the many beach bars offer chilled beers and tangy caipirinha cocktails right on the sands, and are great places to start or end a night out in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro.

    The high concentration of foreign visitors in the area means that there's always a lively party atmosphere at spots like Emporio and Shenanigan's, and these are popular places for holidaymakers to hook up with local beauties.

    Speaking of which, bossa nova fans will want to pay a visit to Garota de Ipanema, the spot where Tom Jobim and Vinicius do Moraes fell in lust with a local girl who passed by each day, and penned the legendary Girl From Ipanema in her honour. The bar has now branched out into so-so chain restaurants, but this is the original and, for bossa fans, the best.

    Meanwhile, much of Rio de Janeiro's gay scene is based in Ipanema, with Rua Farme do Amoeda lined with smart bars and restaurants that cater to a gay-friendly clientele, while Casa da Lua is a chic lesbian bar in Rio de Janeiro.
