Not sure why I have been mute on this place. It’s not an establishment that I really went to at first (reason being is because I never knew about the love motel nearby (Hotel Lido). Every time I go back to Rio, I go to this place more and more. Especially if you are a lone traveler, it can’t get much better. Mab’s is located on the beach in Copacabana towards Leme. You can’t miss it. It opens pretty early (mid afternoon I think) and stays open late into the wee ours of the morning.
Mab’s Address: Av. Prado Júnior, 16A – Copacabana
Cost: Negociable (most charge anywhere between 200-300 reis)
Where to Bang: Hotel Lido – (Address: R. Ronald de Carvalho, 190 – Copacabana) About a 5 minute walk from Mab’s. Cost for 1 hour is 100 reis and they provide condoms and have AC. Very clean too.
As you are seated, the girls line themselves up along the front entrance of the building. They stand there and come and go all night. Mab’s does not charge the girls nor us johns a dime for doing so. Mab’s makes their money off the food and drinks. If you make deliberate eye contact with the ladies as they stand in front, they will probably approach your table. You can invite them to sit at your table, or you can even go talk to them while standing. Some are overly aggressive and will make their rounds of the tables to see if there are any interested buyers. If interested, just some simple eye contact and a finger point in the air will be enough to pull her to your table. Even if you don’t engage with a lady, just the people watching and the beer will make for a very entertaining night. There is no pressure to ever take a girl (because Mab’s would prefer you to stay and keep drinking).
All of the girls working at Mab’s are independents. It’s an interesting breed of women. Mab’s has some amazing chopp (beer on tap) that I love. I would say the average girl working is a high 6 – low 7. You will see some busted up women and then out of nowhere a knockout will arrive on scene. If anything, it’s a great place to start the night if you don’t intend it to be an all night adventure.
