  • Most tourists in Rio will make their base in the city's beautiful South Zone (Zona Sul) and there are bars and nightclubs in Zona Sul, Rio de Janeiro to suit every taste and budget.

    Copacabana has built up a reputation for sleazy strip joints and red-light activity but, while this sort of nightlife can certainly be found in the neighborhood, it is also home to some good beach bars and acclaimed music joints like the tiny Bip Bip.
    The most upscale bars and clubs in Rio can be found in Ipanema and Leblon, with bars such as Baronette attracting supernaturally beautiful Brazilian girls and their wealthy admirers. Expect queues, high prices and extremely choosy door staff if you want to mingle with the beautiful people.

    More laid-back nightlife and eclectic musical policies can be found in the neighbourhoods of Botafogo and Laranjeiras, whose clubs and bars attract the city's funky young things, while Lagoa is home to many a romantic lakeside bar perfect for early evening drinks.
