Rio Vermelho has a ton of nightlife options, from dance clubs to English-style pubs. One of the area’s top clubs, San Sebastian, has a host of music genres to enjoy including electronica, samba, axé, electropop, funk and Brazilian popular music. With one of the best quality sound systems around and three floors of gorgeous architecture, there’s no reason not to check out San Sebastian while in Salvador. If you’re looking for something a little more down to earth, it doesn’t get much better than Borracharia, which is a tire shop during the day and a pulsing club at night! This simple, even rustic space, isn’t made for comfort, but the exotic appeal of partying here at night has brought Borracharia a great following. Check it out on Friday nights to experience the party in full swing, and enjoy various music styles from blues and funk to reggae and samba rock.
