Nightlife

There is an excellent nightlife in Jeri that usually goes until dawn. There are a number of bars, clubs and dance spots to boogie the night away. Things usually get rolling around midnight, when everyone gathers on the main street where Cachaca stands are set up mixing cocktails. Here you will find options of live reggae, forro dancing or lounging in the laid back Woopee bar.
