Canoa Quebrada’s nightlife sizzles on a stretch of Rua Dragão do Mar known as Broadway. If you’re looking for action, you’ll find it at places such as Bar do Reggae, which reels in the Bob Marley groupies, and Bar Meu Xodó, which attracts aficionados of forró. Dancing fiends can whip themselves into a frenzy at No Name, the newest disco in town, which plays a variety of tunes.
Meanwhile, those in search of more sedate surroundings can hide away at Cafeteria Espresso Brasil. During the height of the summer, the festivities take to the beach where various barracas sponsor luaus (sans roasted pig and leis) in the sand.
