Cariocando is a welcome addition to Rio de Janeiro's drinking and dining scene. Cariocando is an interesting option in the often-overlooked Catete neighborhood. The area has been given a new lease on life as bars and restaurants have opened up in attractive colonial buildings. Take a seat at a table on the impressive mezzanine floor, which has great views over the first floor for live music and dancing. Have a bite to eat and a couple of beers or caipirinhas before trying a few moves yourself. With this relaxed, unpretentious crowd, you won't feel obliged to be the world's greatest samba dancer.
