It may have arrived with little fanfare, but Aqueloo Beach Club has become a hotbed of debate among cariocas determined to uncover which out-of-towner has come in and partitioned off a strip of their beach on which to throw all-day parties. This is in fact military property previously closed off to the public (and now accessed via private shuttle van from the entrance to Copacabana Fort), though, making the transformation into a summer-long party paradise all the more unlikely.

Internationally renowned DJs like Felix da Housecat and Mark Knight have already rocked the sandy-toe'd dancefloor, and from late afternoon the terraces fill with locals undeterred by prices of up to R$1,000 a head for a camarote (private 'box') complete with hot-tub and personal waiter to keep the champagne flowing. An interesting mix of people means that the focus can be more on keeping their hair looking good than getting down to the impressively thumping soundsystem, but for a first taste of Florianopolis-style outdoor clubbing in Rio, Aqueloo is proving to be an intriguing experiment.
