One of the best nights that I had in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was when a crew of us went into the Barrio Lapa! Lapa has a couple of restaurants where you can sit outside and share a couple liters of beer. Our crew hung out, and talked for about an hour before heading to a samba club called Democratica. This place was packed! There were hardly any gringos there...people were asking us what we were doing there! It was great. A live band played traditional Brazilian music until 4am! There is a cover charge of 30 Reais which isn't too cool, but once you get inside it is crazy! There are so many people dancing that it made me feel like I can dance...even though I can't! Make sure you check it out the next time you go to Rio!
