“Very small.. Good music”
Review of Bip Bip

Bip Bip
Ranked #9 of 144 Nightlife in Rio de Janeiro
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

If your looking for a big night out in Rio do not go here.. It's just a small room with a small bar with people singing around a couple of tables and standing in a street. Not my cup of tea. Head to Lapa for a good might out in Rio.

"Come for the music, not for the comfort"

If you are looking for something fancy and comfortable while you can have the luxury to admire Brazilian music the local way (which, was what I initially thought),
than you may need to be going out of your comfort zone.

Bip bip is a very small bar and you may even have to sit on the tables out there on the street,
there's only a small selection of beers to choose from (don't expect a menu even),
and yet you see people coming in every 10mins or so, and you think ummm another friend of the musicians? Then this person would suddenly take out an start playing, and yet everyone's blending together so naturally and everybody else was fully enjoying as these players are enjoying themselves.
you can grab a chair while you enjoy your beer or as well stand the whole night as you move to the lovely rhythms.

Don't miss this if you're looking for the real, local Brazilian music - shows on every night and all you need to do is show up with a fiver to get a beer and get your ears ready to listen ;)

It's one of the perfect places to know the real Rio! There you meet kind local people who goes there often, and every night we have "great samba music"! Music Student's come, and start to sing and play, inviting you to sing and dance with them!
It's the right place to celebrate friendship, Samba, and Life!
Alfredinho, the owner is a peculiar man!
Simple bar, not fancy.

If you go pass the grumpy owner, this place is adorable! Be aware that you need to go grab your own beer from the fridge and then let the owner know...
