    Adrenalin reviewed Ipanema Farme de Amoedo Beach Over a year ago
    Loves it

    Unlike any other beach.....
    Fantastic beach unlike another exerpience I've found so far anywhere else. Upon approaching the beach, you will see several rainbow flags when you cross Farme de Amoedo to the beach. Immediately you will be approached by two or three 12-13 year olds in different color jerseys. These are the cabana boys or the beach vendors reps ready to help you get chairs, umbrellas and drinks on the beach. There are 3 different companies resposnbile for Farme beach. My suggestion is to decline their services until you find a spot on the beach. If you hire them right away, you have to sit in their specific zone. So pic the zone you want and then one of the guys will reproach you. Chairs here are more of the style then towels. 90% of the beach will be in chairs and umbrellas. Once you get a beach hire for chairs and umbrella, he will also be getting you drinks. Again, most of these errand runners look like 12-15 years old but they are allowed to deliver alcohol between the bar and you. They will present you with a slip of paper that has your rental items on it and every time you order another drink, they will ask to see it to add more to it. TIP: you also get free wifi from this vendor but you have to ask them to put in the password. At the end of the day leave all your rental item in one spot and take your paper to the back table tents to pay out. Yes they accept credit cards on the beach. There are several variations of showers. Vendor provided which are right at the back of the beach which are free. The others are in the lifeguard buildings along with the toilets. BE ADVISED - there are no free toilets on the beach. You have to pay $1.75 in reals each time to access the bathroom. Same building also has open outdoor showers or enclosed private showers for rental complete with soap and towel, There are many vendors on this beach that will approach you frequently to sell sunblock, necklaces, blankets, zongas (speedo type bathing suit), sandwiches, various drinks etc.....they tend to only take cash but make life convenient. AT times it can be annoying and pestering. Keep in mind Rio;s beach water is not exactly clean and has sewage in it. So if you go in, do not put your head underwater and shower off after you get out. The Brazilians have a tolerance to the water that tourists do not and this an easy way to get sick. Beach is quiet on the weekdays, but insane on Sat & Sun. Sunday part of the roads are closed just for beach pedestrians and bike traffic. They will be filled with wall to wall umbrellas and amazing boys! Great eye candy beyond words. People tend t be friendly and try to communicate here, Use google translate app to help the translate back and forth.

    Awesome Mega-Club - Open on Saturdays
    Went to this club August 2015 anti amazing. It IS open contrary to the title saying its closed. Its located in the warehouse district. You need to take a taxi to get there. When you arrive there will be plenty backed up waiting to drop off. Club is only open on Saturdays. You will be hand wanded and patted down by security to get it. However its well worth the hassle getting there and getting through security. You then have to register for drink card to have an ID of some sort with you (State ID, Driver's License, Copy of passport) as they will open an account for you. You will be asked to give your finger prints as part of registering. This is common in the big night clubs in Rio. Cover charges and all your drink charges will be paid out when you surrender your drinking card at the end of the night. Main room is 3 floors with massive dance floor, stage and 2 balconies. There is a ramp that leads upstairs to and outdoor beer garden and to the balconies of the main dance floor or separate pop music dance room. Both times I was there were packed with wall to wall people - however it was controlled and not overcrowded and still fun. Majority of the crowd is gay 80%. Very dark mansion mysterious, upscale feel with chandeliers, well done decor on the walls and massive well kept bathrooms. Bathrooms have stalls that groups tend to disappear into for extra fun and security doesn't care one bit. Stays open late till 8am. Does not get busy like most clubs in Rio till 12:30am/1am. Taxis waiting as soon as you exit. No ATM on site. Bring cash or make sure your credit cards work ahead of time. Keep in your shoe to avoid pick pockets. Not to miss experience. www.theweek.com.br

    Fun Neat Club - But expensive for out of towners
    Be aware any night you go you will be charged $20 if you are an out of towner. Its annoying for a Mon-Thurs to charge this while locals are free. It does pull in larger crowds durring mid-week but question the $20 charge which is why the lost my intrest a few nights. The club is really 2 bars in one.....8 1/2 which is small with a dancefloor and several couches and a double story pirana which is more of the dance club......even though the fish tanks are now pirana-less. Would be more fun if they worked their prices better......too high for mid week

    Good selection of environment options
    Level 1 - neighborhood bar with small dance floor and outdoor seating (comparative to Roscoes in Chicago/Georgies in Fort Lauderdale) free to get in. Level 2&3 are dance floors which require a cover charge and not open durring the week. They do not get busy until 1am on Friday and Saturday (closed the rest of teh week) Level 2 has two seperate dance floors - 1 hip/hop and 1 dance. Level 3 is one giant 2 level "babylon" club room with dance music. Level 4 is a roof top terrace with a hot tub and small pool and 2 bars. Level 4 can be accessed even if you dont pay the cover for level 2/3. Average drink prices, big mix of ages. Open till 3am

    Good Variety, Nice setup, Bad Attitudes
    Campus is a block from the other major strip club Stock bar. It's located on the second level. HAs a good mix of guys and never a cover. Moderate/average drink prices. Guys tend to have an attitude that if they spend time talking to you, you owe them a private dance or a tip. Several state that they don't make any money and have to pay the bar $30 to work there so are automatically in the hole. It can get kind of obnoxious because they get harrassing if you just want to watch the stage action. Cabaret seating and bar seating. Open till 3am Be carefule with private shows at any Montreal strip club. The going rate is $10 a song (no contact/open curtain) or $20 a song for contact and closed curtain. Songs tend to be shortend, and iot works out to $5 a minute. I barter with them and try for 3 songs for the price of 2......it's all negotiatiable. If they dont negotiate, tell them the nights early and you'll think about it, chance are they will return and make a deal. Once you get to the room, make sure they don't start right away. They will try to start durring the middle of the song you come in on. Also, ask them to count each song for you. Following these steps will help you avoid an suprises

    Twink boys/barely legal - High Drink Prices
    Bar is at the East end of the village across from the Pappineau Metro station. No cover charge and is open till 3am. Guys consist of barely legal twinks, all teenagers- hence the name taboo. Moderate size bar with cabaret table seating or bar seating. Has pool tables and darts, and very high drink prices.....probably the highest in gay montreal clubs. Guys will push to get you to buy them a drink since they dont get discounted drinks, then push for private shows Be carefull with private shows at any Montreal strip club. The going rate is $10 a song (no contact/open curtain) or $20 a song for contact and closed curtain. Songs tend to be shortend, and iot works out to $5 a minute.

    Good to watch....not to get a dance at
    Known as the best strip club in North America, this club has roughly 20-30 dancers working a night. Most nights only one stage is open, however on Fri/Sat they have up to 3 stages going. Models do a set stripping off their jeans/button down to shirtless, then come back on in boxers and doing a second set to full attention nude. Open till 3am everyday, costs $3 to get in. Drink prices are higher then other bars. Choice of seating around the "horshoe" stage with dance pole, against the walls or at the bars. Dancers dont pester you much unless you make eye contact with them, which initiates them to come talk to you or if you sit at the bar they will come talk. Majority are straight and wont do much durring private dance. You can get more bang for your buck by watching from home as the club does live feeds on stockbar.ca which even shows the dressing room (unlike the bar). Be carefull with private shows at any Montreal strip club. The going rate is $10 a song (no contact/open curtain) or $20 a song for contact and closed curtain.

    Your paying for location and value
    You are paying for location. If your a budget traveler and have no problem staying at Motel 6, Super 8's, Best Western's.....this will be fine on room quality. However if your used to staying at Hilton's, Westin's, Hyatt's etc....you wont like this. It's good for the rate your paying....cheap. However there are a few things to note. PRO-It's in a great location, 50 feet from Ste Catherine in the Village, and right across from the Pappineau Metro station. CON- It's above a bar called Taboo (Stripper twink bar) so you hear the booming music echoing until 3am each night. PRO - Good price for the location and qualety of the room. Sheets, towels and room serviced/changed daily. CON - You dont have direct access to the front door. You have to get buzzed in everytime, sometimes having to stand there waiting ringing a doorbell. It also costs more if you come home with someone for the night. PRO - Free Wireless Internet CON- Internet is only accessible from the lounge, not in your room. PRO - Free breakfast on weekends CON -on a hard key system for your room, no credit card style key card. PRO- Steps from all the bars CON- you get a mix of people from the bars....PRO- Vending machines onsite with a big selection CON - thin walls that allow you to overhear screams of passion

    High prices, paying for eatting in the scene
    Prices are very high and do not match the qualety and size of the food served. The qualety is under par. The environment is great as it is a sports bar with all sorts of events and TV's. You can also get a window seat to boy watch guys walking by. The scene is what draws people not the food.

    Great Food with Strip Club Bonus
    Beefcakes is connected to the famous Boardwalk strip club. Beefcakes resturaunt is a small indoor/outdoor cafe with a bar. Serves america food at descent average prices as you would pay at Fridays/Chilli's. Food portions are adequet for the cost and the food tastes very good. They offer special deals if you eat there and purchase certain amounts, they will waive your cover charge into the strip club. The strippers also come in and out when they are on break to relax.

    Comedic Drag with mixed seriousness = EXPENSIVE
    Fun to go with friends. Typically you need a reseveration and purchase/hold tickets in advance. Drinks are pricey as well as the constant baddgering to tip the drag queens. It can add up to be pretty expensive for just ok entertainment.

    Awesome clothing option resort complete with very warm pool next to a bar and outdoor cafe that serves food 24 hours. Also has a sundeck, an indoor and out hot tub, steam room, sauna, workout facility and showers. You do not need to be a guest staying there to use the facility, eat at teh resturaunt or bars. Students with college ID's can get a free week pass to use. Food is actually very good, drinks are reasonably priced. Mixed ages in various states of undressed. Attitude free environment. Best gay resort ive been to, will be back. Spent more time here then the gay resort I was staying at.

    Warehouse Feel - Odd Mix - Late hours
    Not too far from Rehab/Just Johns/Nowaks. Although we were cautioned several times not to walk that it is in a sketchy area. It is located in a warehouse type building under a highway viaduct. No major signs draw you in and it blends in with the other buildings and does not have an outdoor features to alert you its a bar/club from the outside. Inside the first bar is a hallway seated bar with side tables. Darker, but made for casual conversation. Main room is a large open 2 story room with a square bar and dance floor. There is also an elevated platform to stand and look over (not down on) the crowd. The night I was there it was packed. They have a super high platform they had drag queens and leather guys crowing prizes off of. This is the only late hours bar in the area 3:00am, as the other bars down the street close much earlier. Crowd was more of a sloppy crowd. I wouldnt say circuit boys, but more of your average jo's getting drunk. Very very mixed crowed by age wise and body type.

    Depends on the day
    Visited two different days on my last visit to St. Louis. Located on the same strip by ernies, attitudes, rehab, and some lesbian bar. Saturday night was packed with a great mix of guys 20's-30's. One square bar with a side bar and 2 small dance floor areas. Fun sports bar/dance bar feel. Will visit again on a Saturday. Sunday was dead and not worth it.

    Hit or Miss - Sometimes Good Sometimes Bad
    Been 3 times in the past 3 months. Two of which were Fridays, which had hot mix of guys working. One of which was a Sunday (monday holiday) which was crowded with guy patrons but next to no strippers. Be prepared that they have no ATM on site, but will happily take your debit/credit card for an additional $6 fee. Drinks are average price. The guys dance in boxers or briefs to nude on the bar you sit at and on a side back stage. You tip by putting $1's in their sox. Looking up at them from below, some will have fun with you. Be prepared for their offers for the $75 "lounge" show or a clothed $25 lap dance. Crowd is mixed....while mostly gay, they allow guys and girls 18 and over in. I would visit again. My friend and I had probably the most fun there then any of the other bars we visited in the St. Louis area.
