Lapa is the place to experience Rio's bohemia and nightlife. A large and fun place where the streets are full of bars and nightclubs and you will always find something to do. My personal favorites are Bar da Cachaça, Teatro Odisseia, Carioca da Gema, Circo Voador and Fundiçao Progresso. The best days to go are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, but you can find something good to do any day of the week. Lapa is really democratic and welcoming.
