Plataforma Samba Show
If you visit Rio de Janeiro out of Carnival’s season – don’t worry, you will always find a good samba show at Plataforma.
This is a restaurant-club where you can have a meal with friends in small or large groups. The show runs during the dinner time, with music, dancing and all the luxuriant Brazilian Samba costumes showing in the main stage. At some point the show manager starts asking about people from this or that country to go to the stage as well. In the end you hug with the dancers and your national flag, taking a bunch of photos together, etc..
It is not terribly expensive and certainly a well spent evening. [more ]
