Bar Veloso

Bar Veloso is an award-winning Rio de Janeiro-style bar serving the city's best coxinhas — a popular street food in Brazil consisting of shredded chicken meat, covered in dough, shaped into a chicken drumstick, then breaded and deep-fried. You’ll also find other tasty appetizers and famous caipirinhas. As you might expect, Bar Veloso gets quite busy, so be sure to arrive early to get a table.

Bars & Nightlife

The hometown of electro-hipster group CSS, São Paulo's eclectic nightlife is the best in Brazil. Bela Vista has plenty of live music and draws a mixed crowd, while Vila Madalena and adjoining Pinheiros are full of trendy, bohemian nightspots and clubs where you can enjoy a nice cold beer and check out the scene. The Jardins district offers upmarket bars for a more mature as well as the LGBT crowd. Head to the bar at the Fasano Hotel for the best Caipirinha you are likely to taste anywhere. Itaim Bibi and Vila Olímpia are where you will find the trendy up-and-coming clubs.
