50% off at Tropicana Beach Club

Guanabara is London’s largest Brazilian late night venue. They are open 5 nights a week (Wed-Sun) with DJs, live acts and lots and lots of dancing – you will always see something new at Guanabara.

The name comes from the Tupi-Guarani language name for the famous bay in Rio de Janeiro, the gateway to Brazil and a home of blazing extremes. A cultural mix that embraces the playground of Copacabana beach, where the sidewalks are patterned swells of black and white marble, to the hillside favela rising behind; from famous Ipanema beach and its high rise apartments to the Sugar Loaf and Jurujuba beach.

Not only does Guanabara showcase the broad range of new Brazilian music but it also offers a taste of the various styles of cooking from across this vast country. From the famous landscape of Rio to the remote river towns of the Amazon, few countries dazzle all of the senses as Brazil can.

Experience the mixture of flavours in its cuisine, where indigenous seeds and roots were combined with European techniques and West African influences. And for drinks and cocktails, Guanabara is proud to source exotic fruits for its cocktails direct from sustainable eco-farms in the Amazon region.

Guanabara is a great place where where all come to eat, drink and play!

Important Information

Please Note: Guanabara offers 50% off the total food bill for a maximum of 4 diners per card. The discount is not valid on Sundays as the a la carte menu is not served. This venue is open Wednesday - Sunday.

    Food was nice. Entertainment was nice but loud. My food didn't come until 45 minutes after entering the venue, which was half way through performances. The waiter was so inattentive and basically forgot about my table the whole night considering it was 2 feet from him. I had to ask to be served at every course. Also he told me that I can't use my taste card on the whole al carte menu, only for the main course which was a lie! "

    Décor is lovely and the place has a really nice vibe to it however I agree with another review on here about the music being too loud even before the show, we were shouting at each other across the table. As the other reviewer also mentioned, we had a problem with our food order too- over 30mins after we had ordered, our waiter came to tell us there was a problem with the printer in the kitchen and they hadn't received our order. He then brought us a round of drinks on the house which was a lovely gesture, but unfortunately the food still took over another 40mins to come out and one of our group had to leave so she landed up having no dinner. No condiments were on the table and none were offered and it took forever to get anyone's attention. I had to get up and walk over to the waiter who was standing watching the show. Basically, the venue, the vibe, the show, the variety of drinks and the food were all great. The staff were nice and friendly although the service was in my opinion, appalling. I will give this place a second chance as I understand these things do happen in the kitchen and we did actually have a really nice night, but I will be ordering my food 2 hours before I even feel hungry!

On a friday Guanabaras can get very busy as entertainment includes a live band and dancers so if you want to experience the venue at its full potential go at this time!!! Happy Hour is until 7:30 pm so this coupled with the taste london card made our bill £38 for 2 people. Brilliant. Savannah   "

  • "Our Saturday night visit to the restaurant was a great time.   One of the limited restaurants that accept the card on Saturdays, so that was the first bonus.  Our party of 4 had a reservation for 7 and we were served quickly our drinks.  We got 2 happy hour orders in before the 7:30 cut off and our food came very quickly.  Well, most of our food did.  Our starter and one of the meals didn't come at all and we had to ask to get it straightened out.  The menu is somewhat limited but the food and drinks were delicious though which made up for the mistake and the less than friendly service from a few of the servers.    It is a very lively atmosphere and the drums and music made for an interesting and unique dining experience.  I would definitely recommend this place for a non-traditional dinner outing.

We hadn't realised the England-Brazil game would be showing there and when we arrived it was being shown on the big screen. Because the place was packed full of football fans, we decided not to eat but stay for the happy hour and had some wonderful cocktails. The Carioca Punch was particularly good. The food at the next table looked really good - mainly grilled cuts of meats and the chunky chips almost made us change our minds. Next time! Samantha "
