The monthly jazz parties at The Maze have become the stuff of legend in the carioca nightlife calendar - after all, what better backdrop to your night's entertainment than the view you get from its terrace in Tavares Bastos favela of Sugarloaf Mountain, the glittering lights of the city beneath you? Less famed but equally worthy of your patronage is the Labirinto party, which takes place on the second Friday of every month. Inspired by the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, anyone making their way up the community's twisting becos (alleyways) will find the labyrinth metaphor particularly appropriate, the collective of artists, poets and musicians also declaring their desire to slay the 'minotaur' of prejudice against the favelas.


Getting there:
Most taxis will make the climb (albeit reluctantly in some cases), but the regular VW vans (R$3) head up every ten minutes or so from the corner of Rua Tavares Bastos and Rua Bento Lisboa, leaving when full. Moto-taxis (R$4) - licensed motorbikes - wait on the same corner, but are not for the fain-hearted, especially on the way back down.
