    Went to the Galeria Cafe last night for Treta Wednesdays which is when locals told us is the best night to go. KNOW BE4 YOU GO: Club offers $10 reals off cover if you email the guest list on their webpage before 8pm. They also offered free caprianhas for the first hour of being one (11pm-12am). You must have a valid form of ID. I always carry my California ID card which seems to work fine, however this one wanted passport which I leave in the hotel safe. I do carry color photo copies of my passport with me at all times in case I run into a need like this. They accepted the copy no problem. PAYING: similar format to clubs like "the week" and zero zero where you receive a card which you present each time you buy a drink. When you leave you pay you card out which includes all drinks and cover admission charge. They did take credit cards no problem. However, this is part of the entry line which takes forever. One person registers a massive line of people so the outdoor line takes forever. Get their early as it took us 45 minutes with only 15-20 people in front of us. Club is one large square. Its packed wall to wall. There are two bars, one on the side and one on the back and they are difficult to access. Be forewarned this club packs the crowds in tight. In will be overwhelming if you are clastrophobic. US clubs have occupancy ratings and would not allow this many people inside the club. Upstairs has a small balcony overlooking the dance floor. DJ played US dance music and occasional Brazillian pop songs. Everyone seemed to sing along to every song. If your comfortable with crowds and people knocking into you every 30 seconds you will have no problem. If this kind of action drives you nuts, stay away. Upstairs and second bar have low clearance so if your tall like i am 6'+ you will be ducking in those areas non-stop. Its the only good club on a Thursday. If other options exist next time Im here I will explore them. Its a in a good location, across from the gay beach and directly across the street from gay sauna Rio G to put things in prospective.
