Ball Rio Scala Nightclub


For over 40 years, Rio de Janeiro’s Scala Nightclub has hosted Rio Carnival’s annual Scala Balls. A significantly more affordable option when compared to the exclusive Magic Ball at the Copacabana Palace Hotel, the nightly Scala Rio Balls refer to a series of six of Rio Carnival’s most famous themed dance parties, including the Mangueira Ball, the Scala Gay Ball, the Bola Preta Ball, and the Marvelous City Ball.

The Scala nightclub is a symbol of Carnival in Rio. The club moved from Leblon to downtown Rio in 2011, and is currently located right next door to the historic Municipal Theater in Cinelandia. With the switch to its current location, the new Scala nightclub increased significantly in size and now occupies a 3,000 square meters (3/4 of an acre) facility offering 3 ballrooms with a maximum capacity of 2,000 people. At the Scala Balls there will be multiple bars serving drinks and food.

Scala Balls offer two types of tickets: Standing and VIP. Standing tickets offer you access to the bars and dance floors, whereas VIP tickets include unlimited drinks from the bar (whiskey not included) and a buffet of sushi, fresh fruit, and other snacks. You can take a taxi or the subway to the Scala Balls, as the nightclub is conveniently located less than 100 meters away from the Cinelandia metro station.
