“Tuesday samba night - what an experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

I went to melt in July when I was in rio as it was recommended by the hostel I was staying in as being a really good place to go on a tuesday night - and it was brilliant!
It seems to be a meeting place for all the 'gringo's' so there are all sorts of nationalities. There is a samba band playing downstairs until about 1am then afterwards everyone goes upstairs to the nightclub floor!
The main attraction however is the free caipirinhas between 10-12! Be warned these are absolutely lethal!! Only takes a few to get horrendously drunk on and everyone gets pretty wasted! The bar fills up pretty quickly due to these!
The nightclub part is good but very dark! Good music though. Generally a decent and safe crowd but I did notice a couple of prostitutes in the nightclub part who definitely looked like they were there for a bit of pickpocketing!
A great place to go in rio to meet other travellers and partiers!
