Arrival Meet-Up at Boteco Boa Praça

6:00 PM - 9:00 PM, July 25, 2024

Boteco Boa Praça

110 Avenida Vieira Souto, Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro 22420-002

We'll be spending the evening at a beach bar in Ipanema on Thursday night. It's just a short walk from our group accommodation, and right off of the beach.

It'll be a casual meet-up, and guests can come and go as they please. Live music starts at 7:00 pm, so we recommend arriving a bit earlier to ensure you can get a table. The space is large enough to accommodate a big group, and allows for people to stand and mingle outside of their seats.

Transportation to the samba club will be provided, but everyone will make their own way back to their accommodation afterwards. Uber will be the easiest option here.

Book via the link above. The activity is called Samba Class + Night Tour (Wed / Fri / Sat 7pm). Please be sure to select the correct date, Friday, July 26, and write, "Casamento" in the optional notes field to ensure you're noted in our group.

Includes: A one-hour samba lesson with an English-speaking instructor, transportation from the studio in Copacabana to the samba club in Lapa, and entrance fees to the club.

Lunch at Rio Brasa

We are planning to meet up with our guests one last time for a post-wedding lunch before everyone departs. Rio Brasa is not far from our group hotel, and is actually located right near the Botanical Garden and Parque Lage, so if you are following our recommended 3-day itinerary from the guide, this would be great to pair with day 3.

The price is R$273 (reais) per person, or roughly $50 USD, and it includes the full rodizio buffet (plus the salad and suchi bars!), two beverages (water, soda, or beer), a dessert, an espresso, and all service charges.
