São Paulo Partying Cheat Sheet

Party in Sao Paulo

São Paulo is the NYC of the Southern Hemisphere – the city that never sleeps and where its residents, the Paulistas, work hard and party harder. Nightlife choices abound in the city, and here are the top choices in nightlife for any serious party animal.

Best Bar: Bar Veloso

Super Locals are unanimous in recommending this bar. You cannot leave Brazil without having tried Brazil’s national drink, the caipirinha, and Bar Veloso makes it with exotic fruits from the Amazon. Also try the coxinhas.
