Fodor's Review

A smaller, more laid-back neighbor to the long-established samba party at Rio Scenarium, Santo Scenarium shares its parent club’s passion for grandiose interiors, and the split-level space here is packed with ornate pillars, carved cherubs, and borderline-kitsch religious artifacts. While there’s live music on the upper floor by night (a cover of around R$20 applies), at lunchtime the kitchen serves tasty Brazilian classics; a prime spot at the heart of Rio’s oldest street in the party district of Lapa makes it a top stop for history and architecture buffs as well as for music-loving night owls.
