Metrô bus Vidigal / Avenida Niemeyer
The Austrian owner of Casa Alto Vidigal may have had his sights on being the owner of one of the most unique guesthouse locations in Rio, but he inadvertently stumbled upon one of the coolest club locations in the process. The hostel is pleasant enough for anyone on a budget, but it is after dark that the place really fires up, with the likes of DigitalDubs, Botafogo Social Club and dubsteppers Wobble making the most of the outdoor terrace. And when the sun comes up over the Atlantic Ocean and Zona Sul glows down below, it rivals any Ibiza club for that special moment. Get a van or motorbike up from the bottom of the comunity and if in doubt ask for arvrão - the big tree - and pretty much everyone seems to know it, as will you when you see it.
