Miroir Club in Lagoa - Electronic, near the lagoon (Friday and Sat) (website hidden)

Rio Scenarium in Lapa - Samba/ Musica-Popular-Brasileira (MPB) (Thursday - Sat) (website hidden)

Carioca da Gema in Lapa - I heard it is great on the weekends and Monday, I have not been yet, but you should for sure check it out
(website hidden)

Leblon bar scene:
Belmonte in Leblon - great pre-game bar for beers (Thurs - Sun) (website hidden)(email hidden)m

Veloso – my personal favorite even though the crowd has moved on to Belmonte (website hidden)

Jobi – small and packed with people on the streets (Thurs – Sun) (website hidden)

Hotel Fasano in Ipanema (Thursday - Saturday) - very chic hotel W like lounge and club (website hidden)

Lapa neighborhood (Thursay - Saturday) - near the arcs great people watching (website hidden)(phone number hidden)-arcos_da_lapa_rio_de_janeiro-i

Baixo de Gavea – tons of bars, but everyone is in the street drinking beer and looking good. (Thursday night)

Rua Bolivar - in Copacabana, has a lot of good restaurants and bars

Rua Farme de Amoeda - in Ipanema has a lot of good restaurants and bars
Parties

Pedra do Sal – a big street party at the original place of samba downtown (Friday and Monday)

Free Walking tour – I know the girls who do it. You should definitely check it out as it is a great historic view of Rio as it was the original capital of Brazil (tip: It´s really not free as they expect a tip of like R$20-30, but I think its worth it!) (website hidden)

Rainy day?
This is not my list but, for those of you who visit Rio in rainy season… Time
Out Rio's 20 best things to do in the rain:

Brazilan foods you must try:
Acai – a very healthy fruit only found in the Amazon that is deep frozen and served with granola and other fruits – get this at any corner juice store

Juices – there are like 50 different fruit juices here on every corner. Make it your goal to try them all!

Guarana – this is the Brazilian soda they love and so do I. You should try it!

Pastel – think empanada, but Brazilian. It is a deep fried or baked pasty stuffed with beef or chicken or cheese or shrimp or all of the above – the best Pastel is in Leblon at “BB Lanches”

Churrasco – you must go to all you can eat meat! Porcão is a good one

Brigadeiro – a very sweet chocolate ball that normally comes with sprinkles on the outside

Crème de Papaya (crème of papaya) - not necessarily the most well know Brazilian dessert, but my personal favorite

Feijoada – It does not get more Brazilian than this. It is full of different kinds of meat, beans and rice and very filling. Bring your appetite!
Other:
