Circo Voador

Critics' Choice

Venue of choice for some of the best underground sounds from national and international artists and bands

Press image

Circo Voador - aka The Flying Circus - is a legendary Lapa venue where you are as likely to catch Primal Scream or Beady Eye as local samba heroes A Parede. The beautiful, palm tree-lined outdoor terrace is filled with tables and chairs so there is plenty of room for kicking back with a beer, but the sunken dancefloor is the real treasure. A tent-covered pit of sweaty, heaving bodies that bands just seem to love playing to.

As well as the music there are regular workshops in Capoeira, percussion and even acrobatics, as well as a language school, internet room and a separate creche for full time kids classes.
