Rio Scenarium information
One of the city's most photogenic nightspots, Rio Scenarium has three floors, each lavishly decorated with antiques. Balconies overlook the stage on the 1st floor, with dancers keeping time to the jazz-infused samba, choro or pagode filling the air. Rio Scenarium receives much press outside of Brazil, and attracts at least as many foreigners as locals.
