    Love Story: Where the creatures of the night hang out

    by realde14 Written Jun 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This club in the center of Sao Paulo gets good after 3am until late in the morning. This is where the creatures of the night hang out. The music is electronica and loud and the crowd is explosive. Good time guaranteed.

    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.

    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).

    Skye Bar: Trendy night spot

    by finawf Updated Mar 7, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from inside the bar.

    Situated above Hotel Unique in downtown Sao Paulo, this is definitely one place to go to see the beautiful people in the city out at night. It has very trendy decor, with delicious caiprinhas of all imaginable flavors, an open kitchen, dining area, and then outdoor area filled with tables, a swimming pool, and a view of some of the city's skyline.

    Very popular spot, pricey, and will be very crowded. You enter on the side of the hotel via an elevator. Usually is a cover.

    Dress Code: No sneakers. Business casual. Collared shirt, pants, sandals, shoes, summer dresses for women, all acceptable.

    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.

    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!

  • Boogie: Boogie

    by GypsyCanuck Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are plenty of discos and bistros in Sao Paulo. Where all the beautiful people meet. I found bistros were particularly popular (at least with the Brazilian girls we were with). Boogie is THE disco according to my favourite Brazilian girl.

    Dress Code: Ah well, chic would be good. These people know how to dress at night. If you have been to Montreal you'll know what I mean. You can wear jeans and a t-shirt but at the better places you may have a problem and you will certainly stand out in the crowd. Black is a favourite for the night as well...

    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!

    Can´t tell much, but least one thing - check out the recent movies. Visiting a cinema is not a problem and not expensive, and all movies are presented in their original language with subtitles in portuguese. A lot of cinemas are clustered around Avenida Paulista, so this is a good place to go. Wednesday is movie day, so instead the usual 8 Reais (about 3 US$), you only pay 6 Reais (about 2.5 US$).
    In addition, you might check out the theater (see photo).

    Unfortunately, I can't come up with a big list. Due to the language problem and the fact that I was NEVER introduced to some nice and interestingly spots by the brazilians around me (so much for brazilian hospitality; but I think it is a specific problem of Sao Paulo), I can only point out to irish bars - O'Malley's and Finnegan's Pub.
    People speak english there, so you can finally talk to someone.

    Dress Code: Any dress will do.

    Many pubs are open at night, but be sure to take care, because it is a big city and there are inherent dangers. Many nightclubs are located near Augusta boulevard. Being there with my father, I didn't have too many opportunities to let my hair down with the locals!!

    Lots of good places but they open n close quickly

    by Andre_C10002 Written Jul 9, 2006

    There are LOTS of really good places to go at night in São Paulo, but keep in mind that they open and close really quickly. A club or bar that is considered a good place today may be closed in 4 or 6 months. The best tip is to visit some local web sites or buy magazines with reviews of clubs and bars or give these neighborhoods a try: Vila Olimpia, Vila Madalena, streets near Paulista Avenue where there are always good places to go.

    All Black Irish Pub: Need a dose of English!?

    by worldcam Written Mar 1, 2004
    Ave. Paulista, SP

    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!
