The Maze: World-renowned Jazz Bar,
Bed & Breakfast…a Work of Art

Located in the heart of the community Tavares Bastos, The Maze was build in 1981 as a family home by British artist Bob Nadkarni, resembling a labyrinth in the middle of the favela. The venue is unique in its intriguing architecture and renowned for its stunning views over the Guanabara Bay and Sugar Loaf.

Over the years The Maze developed into a multi-faceted cultural center with Live Jazz events [cited 6 years running as World Top Jazz Venue by Downbeat Magazine], cutting edge Brazilian music shows, a permanent art exhibition, and architecture described as ‘Unique & Original’ by National Geographic. It’s also the only place you can get original Indian style curry in Rio.

The Maze supports local community teaching projects including classical music, ballet, football and English conversation.
