“Gema means "egg yolk" in Brazilian Portuguese, and the Carioca or Rio native is hence the "yolk" of the Rio de Janeiro egg. Carioca da Gema is a smaller and more intimate club and was one of the first Samba Dance Clubs to open in Lapa.”

“If you are going to visit Lapa, this is the best place to have a really good Cachaça!! It is a really small place where there is no table or chairs. People go there because of the differents flavors of Brazilians cachaças. It's a good place to meet new local friends, talk, and warm up for the night! ”
