Fodor's Review

A favorite among local sambistas, Carioca da Gema is one of Lapa's liveliest spots, with talented musicians performing seven nights a week. By 11 pm, finding a place to stand can be difficult, but regulars still find a way to samba. Call ahead and book a table if you are more keen to be a spectator. There's a good pizzeria downstairs.
