The organiser of the Rio Music Conference loves this eclectic and perennially popular clubbing venue in Rio de Janeiro’s cool Gávea neighbourhood
My favourite place in Rio de Janeiro is a club called 00 (Zero Zero) in Gávea, one of the best neighbourhoods in town. A unique design, a powerful sound system and an incredible vibe, make this venue legendary. Trends come and go, but after 14 years, 00 is still buzzing seven nights a week.
The first time I went there, in 2002, I was impressed by the club’s concept and how well-dressed people were, quite uncommon in Rio, a beach town. The music is different every night, from old-school hip-hop to the latest techno tracks from Berlin and Brazilian classics. This eclectic mix attracts a distinct crowd each night, making everything more interesting.
