A 3500 square-metre stadium with room for 6500 people, all kept lubricated thanks to 1100 tons of refrigeration can only mean one thing; Barra da Tijuca. The owners have gone unusually democratic with the prices whilst not shirking on the entertainment - DJ Marlboro and Furacão 2000, even Madonna's ex Jesus Luz getting in on the action in this corner of Barra. Though inexpensive and far from exclusive, the staff on the door can be fairly tough on entry so be sure to take ID and the no-shorts policy is strict; with little nearby to occupy anybody who gets turned away, being sure of getting in is everything.
