Bip Bip : one of the city’s favorite spots to catch a live roda de samba

The musical lineup features samba on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, choro (short for chorinho ; a romantic, intimate samba) on Mondays and Tuesdays, and bossa nova on Wednesdays. Music kicks off around 8pm.

For years Bip Bip has been one of the city’s favorite spots to catch a live roda de samba (informal samba played around a table), despite it being just a storefront with a few battered tables. As the evening progresses the tree-lined neighborhood becomes the backdrop to serious jam sessions, with music and revelers spilling into the street.
