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.
Best Club: D-Edge
D-Edge has been leading the way of Brazil’s dance music scene. Local dance music heads can be found dancing the night away there. In true Brazilian fashion everyone is super friendly and not shy to bust out those moves.
Best Live Music Venue: Beco 203
Super Local Alex’s favorite live music spot is an intimate venue that hosts both local and international bands, and has an agenda of anything from indie music to the Brazilian-infused Samba Rock!
Best Drunk Munchie: Bella Paulista
Open 24-hours, the Bella Paulista bakery and restaurant serves everything from pastries to hot meals. Eat to your heart’s content after a long night out exploring the infamous Brazilian nightlife.
Hangover Breakfast: Açaí na Tigela
A typical Brazilian breakfast is the refreshing superfood açaí na tigela with oats and fruits. Ice cream for breakfast? Super local Fabiola says why not!
