The night falls in the city,some gets a DVD maybe and some like me goes out in search of an interesting spot,maybe some place to listen to jazz or local music,some place where interesting people goes maybe.
They say it is dangerous at night out in the city,maybe we shall all stay in and police can arrest anyone who is out and about....
Dress Code: I have not been to anyplace in SP where you would require some special dress..
This bar-cafe has no name on the door, is situated between the red light areas of Consolacao and Augusta and is both very Brazilian and quite cosmopolitan (except the staff don't speak english). It is a small house decorated in a style the owner calls 'contemporary baroque', and has a garden. The 'petiscos' (small dishes) are wonderful and some are quite exotic (wild boar and capivara in pastry). The mojitos are better than in Cuba! The music is cool and eclectic. The staff are very friendly. The public varies in age, profession and tribe.
Dress Code: no rags to be seen anywhere....
We went there to listen, watch and dance Samba and we had a great evening.
The group playing samba was really very good... And even if we never tried to dance Samba, at the end of the evening we did it quite well....
Dress Code: To dance Samba, let me suggest notto use sneakers, but a pair of shoes with heels
It is not easy to define Sky.. as it is not easy to define most good places in Sao Paulo. The trendy places like to be different. And Sao Paulo people is pround of being.. Unique. That's the combination.
Sky is a bar on the top floor of a very trendy hotel called Unique. It has a breathtaking view of the city, a very nice louge area and a great restaurant.. oh and I forgot to say: beautiful people. Who could ask for more?
Dress Code: No sneakers.
This pub is a great place to go to meet friends and make others. In English. Typical Irish pub with good Irish pub grub and better beer. They have a need system for you tab -- they give you a "charge card" as you enter and everytime you order something you give the bartender/waiter the card. Upon leaving you "check out", pay your bill and that's it!
Always crowded, especially if you want a table outside. It's a nice place to come with friends to drink or to flirt.
OPEN HOURS: 11 AM to 1 AM (Monday to Thursday) and until 2 AM on Friday and Saturday.
Dress Code: Casual but if you come for the happy hour, you may see many well-dressed people who come directly to the bar from work or hit the bar before going to a "balada" (disco).
and you find yourself in what you as a tourist call DowntownSP, and you say you must at least visit what is aguably the city's sharpest nightspot...this is it. Very clean and modern lines, an eclectic group outside at the elevators as well as upstairs in the bar area itself...make sure you go out to the rooftop terrace and take in the sweeping city views, the millions of lights twinkling all around you. And if it's chilly as it was that evening, that morning, don't worry, there's a great firelit torch-lamp thing which gives off a lovely, toasty glow...not toooo close though...
Dress Code: People were there in jeans, but I would err on the side of caution and just wear black. You can't go wrong with that idea.
D-Edge is the city´s newest electronic music club, and, I bet with the world, if it isn´t the coolest place one could ever go to. It´s dark, with neon lights flashing from the floor and walls along with the beat of the music... and in the dancefloor there´s a huge equalizer on one of the walls which also works along with the music. The clubbing crowd who goes there is incredible: beautiful people, who above all, are fashionable and modern. That´s why I say... the world hasn´t discovered Brazil yet... we´re the best :o) well, it´s better if we keep it that way :o)
The Sao Paulo nightlife is suuuuuper cool. Afterhour parties are all over; there´s music for all tastes and all places are simply awesome!
Dress Code: Fashionable dressing... clubber-like dressing.
High quality drinks in a dark room with leather couches and chintz curtains, all on the 41st floor of Edificio Italia. Spectacular views of the City in warm comfortable surroundings.
Dress Code: Go for drinks at the bar but not for dinner - the restaurant has lost some of its flair (local gossip).
Visit a bar where they perform capoeira dances. Slaves in Brazil were not allowed to engage in fighting but they found a way to develop skills in martial arts by learning capoeira (pronounced kap-ware'-uh).
Lovee's is kind of luxe and elite most nights, so check the calendar and call to see what's going on. Usually it's an expensive club, but when I went they had an incredible drum'n'bass night with lots of friendly local kids and great DJ's. The inside was gorgeously designed, with lots of glitter and plastic Buddha's. Fabiola was an artistic dancing maniac and introduced me to the Sao Paulo D&B DJs. You buy drinks with heart-shaped pastel heart tokens from the front.
This city never sleeps. So, doesn't matter if is sunday or monday, everynight you'll find a good bar to drink a 'caipirinha', a place to dance or a live show. Or, if you preffer something most calm, a Theather is a good idea.
This place has everything. Here you can dance to live music - from reggae to salsa to Brazilian rock, as well as shop for some unique, hand-crafted goods at the front portion of this venue.
Dress Code: Dress as you would to go to any hot spot.
Ladies... break out the low-rider pants that you're too inhibited to wear in your home city!
Sao Paolo is teeming with nightclubs and pubs. Just a tip, when you get in, you are given a ticket which gets stamped whenever, you order drinks. DO NOT LOSE it, otherwise, you will pay the maximum amount!
The night life in Sampa is THE best!
You'll find places open 'üntil the last customer leaves'. All sorts of restaurants, night clubs, bars and beautiful and very friendly people. It is definite a MUST SEE!!!
