Nightclubs in Rio de Janeiro – All the Best Information
Almost all nightclubs in Rio de Janeiro have a system where you pay for entrance and what you have consumed on departure. In a nightclub (boate in Portuguese) you can pay 80 R$ to get in, half of that can be the actual entrance and the other half is then for bar consumption. In other words would you be spending minimum 80 R$.
They keep track on how much you have consumed on either a plastic card with a bar code or just on a paper the give you. Try to get used to this so you won’t get any unpleasant surprises. Many foreigners spend more money then they actually have, try to avoid that, it’s a real pain when it happens.
Entrance can vary a lot between men and women, in some of the nightclubs in Rio they won’t let you in if you don’t have female company, women as a rule pay less to enter. For nightclubs and clubs they insist on proper clothing, ie. no bermudas or flip-flops. Always bring a copy of an ID or a passport, without it’s likely they won’t let you in.
