Floripa's version of the ultra popular Brazilian gay megaclubs brings the party outdoors during Carnival season. Let's just say that the ventilation is a much needed respite when all those bodies start heating up.

postcub gave this placeWOW.. is the word that comes to mind..The Week is a franchise from Sao Paulo. This is the "IT" place to be during Carnival , New Years, Easter. It puts most clubs in the USA to shame ( all 3 do really.. Sao Paulo, Rio, Florianopolis ).
The Week bought the hotel Ecco Village Hotel ( although the hotel is not that great ) and converted the back to HUGE dance club. There is mulit terraces. It all over looks the back lagoon. They really did this up right. They usually have DJs from around the world. One nice thing is that they dont play "trance" music for ever and ever. They have dance shows on separate stages. In typical South American standard.. nothing starts until midnight and the crowd does not arrive until 1:30am. Last song is about 6-6:30am. Then usually the The Week has an after party on the beach until noon. ( So you need to change your sleeping habits or have a different "stimulus" to keep you going ). The beach bar is at the entrance of the gay beach.
The Week is pricey. $75USD entry. Cheaper if you buy tickets in Sao Paulo or Rio before your arrival. If you are shy about dancing in your underwear ( you can dance with clothes on but you will die of the sweat ), you could be nervous about going... but no one cares. Also like other bars in Brazil, you pre pay and get drink coupons, that are then used to get drinks or water at the bars. This keeps the lines moving quickly.
Sum up in one word: DAMN ;-)
- Awesome setup
- The hottest guys around.
- Pre-purchased drink coupons keep the bar lines moving very fast
- Morning beach party
- Sweat from everyone packed in
- Dark-area by lagoon
First to Review
- Pricey entrance fee
- Not a place for the body image conscious.
- Parking can be tight if you are not staying at the beach
