Fodor's Expert Review Studio RJ

Ipanema and Leblon Dance Clubs

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Live bands, diverse DJ sets, and dancing to stunning sea views are the draw at this welcome addition to the Zona Sul nightlife scene. The ample space is ideally suited to dancing, and the bar that anchors one end serves excellent cocktails. In a nod to the area's hip musical past—this space operated for decades as the bar–restaurant Barril 1800—Studio RJ has revived the Jazzmania nights that had locals donning their dancing shoes during the 1980s and 1990s.
