Fundição Progresso

Rua dos Arcos, 24 | Lapa

Considered one of the best places in Rio to enjoy live music, Fundição Progresso has quite a story. In the heart of Lapa, the carioca bohemian neighborhood, this beautiful historic two-story former foundry was about to be demolished when a group of artists managed to turn it in a cultural center, in the late 80’s. Since then, the venue pulls crowds (up to 5,000 people) to watch performances by local and international artists – Caetano Veloso, Jorje Ben Jor, Franz Ferdinand, Manu Chao and Motörhead have already played on its stage. Besides music, Fundição is also home for theatre and circus groups.
