Those who cannot resist dancing to an electronic beat will feel at home in the Fosfobox night club, enlivened by DJs playing house, electro and hip-hop music. Lapa is a relaxed district where there are many bars and stages with live music. The Teatro Odisseia puts on a pop and rock program which makes it very different from other places in this area where samba and choro usually reign. The best of Brazilian music is found in places like Bar Semente (where there is a great jam session on Mondays), Carioca da Gema and Rio Scenarium.
