  SESC Floorshow
by NedHopkins

¶ Solar do Unhäo
Located in a one-time slave market, the Solar offers a nice buffet dinner of typical Bahian food and a 90-minute floor show. Guests sit mostly at long tables with poor sight-lines to a very small platform. The dancers and musicians are talented (and professional); the costumes are elaborate; and the capoeira is the best I've seen. Show and dinner: R$55 (US$19).

Located in the same building as the SENAC restaurant ? up a steep flight of stairs, the restaurant being a steep flight higher. Guests sit on concrete steps around a large platform. The performers are less accomplished than those at Solar do Unhäo. Dinner, if wanted, is of course separate. 60-minute show: R$7 (US$2.45).

Dress Code: Anything that's legal.

Directions: ¶ Solar do Unhão: Av Contorno.
By all means take a taxi to and from.
