What you'll do

We'll meet up at Books Hostel located in the bohemian neighborhood of Lapa. This hostel, where I’ve worked for years, is internationally known for its “dangerous caipirinhas” and for being a place where you can always party and meet new people from all over the world. Each guest will receive one free caipirinha—Brazil's national cocktail. After an hour, we’ll head to Cachaça Bar, just a two-minute walk from the hostel. Nothing evokes the feeling of Lapa better than Cachaça Bar. Always open until the late hours, the bar offers over 200 flavored cachaça labels. —a distilled spirit made from fermented sugarcane juice—and hang around for 30 minutes to an hour, depending on your curiosity. We’ll then go to the live samba at Lapa Arches (free entrance until 10PM - 10 brl after), a great place that's not at all mainstream, to listen to live music and dance.
Other things to note
Lapa isn’t known for being the safest place in Rio, but no place really is 100% safe. Avoid walking by yourself on empty streets and taking pictures on your phone on the streets when I’m not around.

I’ve always been an avid traveler, and an enthusiast and regular goer of unconventional and alternative nightlife in Rio de Janeiro and around the world. Every time I visit other countries and cities, I try to escape from the mainstream and most traditional parties or tourist spots and attractions. I'm always looking for unique experiences—something that, without the help from a local, would be impossible to find out on my own. I’ve worked at hostels around Rio for over five years and I’ve always found it interesting to go out with people who are unfamiliar with all that the city has to offer.

As a solo female traveler this experience was great. I wanted to check out the Lapa neighborhood and it felt like a friend was taking me out. I enjoyed hanging at the cachaca bar and the samba club was super fun. Definitely felt like a Brazilian night out with friends. I had a great time, thx Andre

An excellent night out. Andre was great fun and interesting to talk to. We went to a club that we never would have considered even going into had we been alone. It was a great atmosphere and we enjoyed dancing with the locals. The caipirinhas were also excellent and indeed dangerous! Andre made sure we got in our Uber at the end of the night.

By far the best tour guide in the city, i've been on several tours but Andre is by far the best one, caring, attentive, very personal and has wonderful way of connecting to each and every single guest he hosts in his tours. knowledgeable, friendly, clearly very well aware of the great and best spots to see and visit in this city. His knowledge of the City as well as its history, neighbourhoods and personal attention to each and every single guest is remarkable, would recommend to take this tour and specifically ask for Andre for ANYONE VISITING RIO. ANDRE IS THE BEST, thank you for the wonderful experience!
