One of Praia do Futuro’s most popular beach bars is actually a spacious complex with plenty of seating and hammocks to enjoy. The swaying palm trees and verdant grounds offer a perfect respite from the heat, but you’ll want to stick around for the live music in the evening. Crocobeach offers a variety of musical acts as well as live comedy shows.
For the always-welcome combination of sun, sand, waves, drinks and music, go to Praia de Iracema and stop in at Boteco Praia. This charming beach bar has plenty of Brazilian snacks to enjoy and cold drinks to sip on while you listen to their nightly live music. The gorgeous ocean views make the experience even more relaxing.

For some live music you won’t be able to stay seated for, head to Arre Égua and experience some classic Brazilian forró music and dance. Tuesdays are their best night thanks to a lively crowd that keeps the music, drinks and dancing flowing. It’s country-style décor and relaxed environment make it the perfect place to let loose.

Wednesday nights don’t have to be boring. Make your way to O Chopp Bixiga for a mid-week party in the Dragão do Mar area. It’s a simple place with plastic chairs and tables, but the beer is cold and the crowd is friendly. Expect to see some guitar strumming from acoustic to rock.
