Salvador da Bahia is a very interesting city when it comes to nightlife. There is no need to wait for the weekend to go out for dinner, drinks and a dance in Salvador. The joy of this city is highly contagious and the parties begin and multiply, even in the street, with an energy that takes over everyone, as there is something for all tastes, palates and wallets. The Pelourinho district is the nighttime headquarters, although there are also many clubs in the Rio Vermelho district.
There are bars and nightclubs of all types, from those which offer culinary delights to the more simple establishments in which you can drink and dance until sunrise to the rhythm of the top DJs. An unmissable place for live music is Sankofa African Bar, located in the heart of Pelourinho. Salsa, samba, reggae and MPB (Brazilian pop music), together with DJs who masterfully mix Caribbean, African and international rhythms, make this place the most comprehensive option for fans of live music. On top of all this, it has the atmosphere of an old mansion, typical of the city and decorated with African masks and flags.
If you are looking for something a little more peaceful or a quiet place to have a drink, the French Quartier is without doubt your place. This spot, located facing the Jardim dos Namorados garden, boasts first-class gastronomy accompanied with live jazz and blues.
JequitiBar is located in the open air, on the balcony of the Sesi theater, and has an excellent menu and drinks list which is very appropriate for good company with friends, enjoying a chat with spectacular sea views. They also offer live music to complement the tranquil setting.
O Cravinho, situated in Praça Quinze de Novembro, is a rustic and welcoming bar that offers the most varied range of flavored cachaças, with more than thirty to choose from. Of course this traditional drink cannot be consumed on an empty stomach, which is why they also offer typical regional dishes to begin the Bahian night in the best possible atmosphere.
The most popular spots: Casa da Mãe, at Rua Guedes Cabral 81, Orla de Rio Vermelho, is where Bahian traditions combine with local specialties at very affordable prices. Another loyal exponent of these traditions is the picturesque Botequim São Jorge bar, where samba blasts at all hours of the day. It is located in Rio Vermelho, on Rua Borges Reis 60.
