I went to Hot House for the first time last night and was pleasantly surprised! Parking was easy, entry was fast [maybe owing to the new year's holiday soon] and overall, it was great.
Thursday was samba night with free lessons and not soon after they start playing the dance floor fills up. There was a two-drink minimum and drinks were strong, but with Edilson Lima dancing with his female partner and leading the dancing, it's definitely not boring and it's practically non-stop. We hated to leave at 2am!
The only minus was that we bought tickets online and ladies were suddenly free to get in when we got there, with no refunds.
