Rio de Janeiro nightlife attractions are the nightclubs, the beaches, theatres, restaurants and live music. Youths in Rio generally prefer the clubs for electronic music, hip hop, rock and Carioca Funk.
A full house, with billiards, lounge, bar, stage with some major performers. If you see Carlinhos de Jesus (a famous dancer and choreographer, as well as partner in the club), show him your camera and ask him to take a picture of you—he loves that gag!
In the last years it has become the center of Rio De Janeiro nightlife, with 30 gafieiras (dance halls), 40 bars, a few night clubs and three show venues.
