It might not be Carnaval time in Rio but it is always Carnaval time at Plataforma. This lively Brazilian restaurant is where to get your fix of razzle and dazzle all year round.

The colorful show tells the story of Brazil's history (with Portuguese, Indian and African influences) through song and dance (including samba), with a highlight being the Brazilian drums. The finale involves a sparkling parade of outfits reflecting the yellow, blue, green and white of the Brazilian flag.

The show is family friendly although it does end sometime between 11:30pm and 12:30am, so not for the 'early to bed' crowd.

Practical Info

Due to the late finishing time it is a good idea to have transport home from the show pre-arranged or to go with a tour who will take you back to your hotel.

To get there you can catch the 415 bus or a taxi, Ipanema is the closest metro but it isn't in walking distance.
