The Estrela da Lapa bar is a lively nightspot in Rio de Janeiro, a dance club that primarily attracts a crowd of thirty-something singles who enjoy Rio’s exciting and colorful nightlife scene. The club's musical roster includes a range of swing, samba, salsa, jazz and live music performances. Set within a renovated Lapa mansion, the club's refurbished vintage decor features original fixtures such as exposed brick walls, iron grilles and soaring timber-clad ceilings. Enjoy a birds-eye view of the crowd below from the mezzanine level, or head straight into the ground level dance floor action to experience a real taste of Rio’s nightlife scene. Reservations can be made for seating next to the dance floor, or near the railings on the second and third levels. The dance club's ambiance is trendy yet sophisticated, and the drink menu is vast, including favorites such as the local Brazilian Devassa beer or the strong fresh fruit daiquiris. The live music performance schedule is overseen by local Paulinho Albuquerque of Carioca Records fame, ensuring the most cutting-edge music in town.
