Life in Queens
For the past few years, Life in Astoria, Queens, has hosted one of the best Brazilian nights. Located in the heart of the second most populated enclave of Brazilians in the United States, Life lounge attracts the most die-hard music fans of Brazilian music. You occasionally hear a great Samba here and there but prepare yourself to be immersed in what is hot in Brazils' clubs. The now popular sounds of contemporary Brazilian music heard in top 40 radio stations resonate throughout the first floor of the lounge. Revelers sing in unison as the Portuguese rap, house, and dance music permeate the air. Reggaeton is center stage as well and it wont be long until you hear a Brazilian reggaeton!
As you ascend to the Sky Lounge, second floor, you travel through a time and space warp. The States top hits, including Daddy Yankees' reggaeton, 50-Cent's hip hop take center stage and you will witness Brazilians among a very mixed crowd getting down just the same. Overall, the ambiance is worldly and friendly and you walk away feeling you like just stepped out of a lounge in Ipanema.
