Jazz at The Maze
I have said before and I say it again: for me the The Maze is one of the best night places of Rio.
Look at this!
The event of this Friday is the monthly jazz. The price is R$ 50 before 11:00 p.m and R$ 60 after.
* The event takes place in Tavares Bastos community, in Catete. It is a very safe community, but its worth to point out. To go up, take the vans that leaves from the corner of Tavares Bastos Street and Street Bento Lisboa, very close to the Catete metro station. To come down, it is possible to go by foot.

Free * party at Ouvidor Street
Party of MPB at the corner of Ouvidor with Mercado Street. On the streets, lots of fresh air!
* For free, but it costs money for the producers. Collaborate with the hat, at least in the suggested amount of R$ 5.00, so they can continue being able to offer democratic alternatives for nightlife in Rio.

Party Tupiniquim for free in Jacarepagua
Rio is beyond South Zone. And Tupiniquim Party knows that very well, since they have been doing a lot of parties in the West Zone of the city.
In the sets, Brazilian music takes over and the good vibe is guaranteed.
Saturday from 06:00 p.m to 10:00 p.m.
Bunytos de Corpo is a carnival block in which the dress code is: gym clothes from the 80`s.
People stretching and doing jumping jacks in the middle of the party, things like that. They got me only by being so excentric, but I confess that I never been there. My friends say is great and I know the place (Espaço Rampa) it’s super cool (with sight to the Guanabara Bay).
The event leaves from Cinelandia, goes on a Bananobike (<3) to the Praça Marechal Ancora, where the concert of Biltre and the presentation of the Carnival bloco Minha Luz é de LED will take place.
Another example to prove that Rio is beyond South Zone. Not free, but almost: Tickets R$5.00 (full price) and R$ 2.50 (half).
