Make sure you dress up a bit, it's a nice place and everyone looks their best. Great music, nice people, and an overall great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this to anyone! We just went for a drink with colleagues, so no food.

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
