Salvador is known for its super laid-back vibe, but the city comes alive at night like no other. The samba bars in the historic Pelourinho district are especially worth a visit. Check out our guide to the top samba spots in the city.

Largo Quincas Berro D’água

Another public space in the historic center is Largo Quincas Berro D’água. Though smaller than Largo do Terreiro de Jesus, this is still a hot spot for live music and samba shows. Instead of being a large public square, this space is more of a back alley, but there’s still plenty of restaurants to get your fill of acarajé and beer as you enjoy the unique sound of Salvador’s samba beats.
