Clandestino Bar is this undeground club in Copacabana, right next to one of Rio’s most famous hostels, so there’s always a young crowd made of people from all around the world as well as Brazillians. It’s a great way of meeting new people. Since I went to Brazil all by myself, all my now close friends were also fellow travellers I met at Clandestino. They play different music every night (funk, soul, hip hop, pop, electro, etc.) so every night there’s a different crowd.
It's weird to explain what Hard Rock is, because most people know the place (they are all over the world!)
The one in Rio is a great nightclub for those who love to dance crazy, with arms and legs wide open because it’s spacious there. I danced 'carioca' funk all night and it was pretty funny! Almost forgot to praise the drinks - very creative and tasty.

This is a store specialising in Havaianas (famous Brazilian flip-flops)! I visited the store after asking a local girl what kind of Brazilian present I should buy for my girlfriend who couldn’t come with me. She told me to go to Ousadia - it has all kind and colors of Havaianas.

Azul Marinho is a restaurant specialising in seafood. I had a great afternoon there! After the beach I stopped by to have a late lunch with some friends. I ordered lagosta à brasileira (lobster) and camarão na moranga (shrimp). Both plates were very good! The restaurant also has an amazing view to the beach. Sunset there is out of this world!
