Lapa's nightlife scene encompasses virtually every type of music imaginable, and sleek Leviano has established itself as a prime venue for the sonically curious. On the packed upstairs dance floor, locals and tourists strut their stuff to everything from MPB (Brazilian pop music) to bass-heavy favela funk. Sambistas flock to Wednesday's roda de samba, and live jazz on Tuesdays has also proven popular. With its wooden floors, steel beams, and exposed brick walls, the downstairs lounge is typical of the chic bars replacing the hole-in-the-wall joints Lapa was famous for. Leviano's sidewalk patio is ideal for early-evening drinks and munchies.
