Bip Bip information
For years Bip Bip has been one of the city's favorite spots to catch a live roda de samba (informal samba played around a table), despite it being just a storefront with a few battered tables. As the evening progresses the tree-lined neighborhood becomes the backdrop to serious jam sessions, with music and revelers spilling into the street.
The musical lineup features samba on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, choro (short for chorinho ; a romantic, intimate samba) on Mondays and Tuesdays, and bossa nova on Wednesdays. Music kicks off around 8pm.
