Nightlife in Joao Pessoa, Brazil

Nightlife in Joao Pessoa is centered on Avenida Olinda. On this avenue, you'll come across bars, clubs and restaurants that attract tourists and locals of all ages. Avenida Olinda is filled with flavors, rhythms and diverse character, from the traditional Emporio Cafe, to Tempero da Goma. Tempero da Goma is known as a "tapiocaria", a locale serving tapioca tortillas with a variety of fillings; it draws in a unique crowd including families and some of the local gay population, all in the same place.

For those who love reggae, try visiting Marley's (in front of Cafe Emporio). If you prefer a more lively evening, Bar de Praia in the Cabedelo neighborhood is the perfect spot, featuring performances by some of the region's best musicians.

Rock, Forro and much More

Nightlife in Joao Pessoa, Brazil

If rock music is your thing, we recommend Galpao 14, situated on the Largo de Sao Pedro, and the Papagaio Pirata on Cabo Branco Beach. Both of these locales set the stage for a variety of local bands. The city also houses many places that play traditional "forro pe de serra" (a typical Brazilian rhythm and dance), and you'll have opportunities to visit all of them because each opens on a different day of the week.
