Bar do zé: Bar do Zé
I lived in Campinas my whole life and Bar do Zé was always one of my favorite places.
I'ts more rock'n roll than anything else, but sometimes they also have indie rock, samba rock, funk, blues... Sometimes they have some art exhibitions also!! :D
It has good drink prices, but you will have toyou have to pay to get in (between 7 and 15 R$).
You'll find a lot of university students over there! It's a great place to make new friends.
I highly recommend it!
Dress Code: You can get in using basically whatever you want.
- Arts and Culture
I didn't like this place too much, but everybody says that you can leave campinas without parting in swingers.
I'll do a little resume of my night in swingers:
1-. Wait more than one hour to go inside.
2-. Pay 25 reais for the admision.
3-. You have to give you personas data: adress, name, age...
4-. Awfull and really loud techno music ALL THE NIGHT. *:-|
5-. More than 10 reais for a caipirinha.
6-. It was crowded, too much I mean.
7-. When I thought I was going home I had to wait for other 40 minutes to pay.
8-. Many nice girls averywhere.
I love this place, probably my favorite in Campinas. They play nice music, from reggae to 60's rock'n roll.
They prepare nice caipirinhas (sugar kane liquor + lemon + sugar + ice) and they have many brazilian beers too. They also prepare snacks if you are hungry.
On tuesdays is the IAESTE students day, so you'll find students from all over the worl there.
PS: Maybe it isn't the best place when it's rainning.
Star Clean: Star Clean
During the day is a place where cars are cleaned, but... when it gets dark... it becames a place to drink and enjoy.
During the week is a nice place to have some beers and talk to the friends, and sometimes, in weekends they organize live music concerts, most of the times MPB (Brazilian Popular Music).
The place is most of the times crowded when there is live music, so it's better if you buy the tickets before. They are between 5 and 10 reais.
Casa Sao Jorge: Lots of beer and cachaca
i loved the place; mostly students from Unicam are coming here according to my friend; to be honest i don't remember much except that it was my first night out in Brazil and i was studying all the diferent kinds of cachaca and i laughed so much at my friend's jokes
